Potato Options for Steak Style Garlic Mashed Potatoes:

Steakhouse-style mashed potatoes work best with baby red potatoes. You can also use Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes. If using russet potatoes, be sure to peel the potatoes before using this recipe, as russet potato skins are often tough.

Water and Chicken Broth:

Potatoes will absorb some of the cooking liquid, so cooking potatoes in chicken broth is a great way to add flavor to mashed potatoes. If you don’t have chicken broth, you can also use water, but your mashed potatoes won’t have that extra flavor that makes them overly flavorful.


This recipe calls for buttermilk. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can always use a buttermilk substitute, or use plain whole milk or heavy cream.

To mash or whip:

Mashing potatoes is done with a potato masher tool, while whipping potatoes is done with a hand mixer. Either method can produce dishes with slightly different textures. Mashing creates more lumps and texture, while whipping absorbs more air and makes for a lighter, fluffier, smoother mash. When making steakhouse-style mashed potatoes with the skin on, it’s best to mash the potatoes to preserve the texture.

Fresh mashed potatoes are best. However, you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat single servings in the microwave in 30-second increments until warmed through.
