Brazilian Churrasco Steakhouse Mashed Potato Recipe Is Outrageously Delicious

A local Brazilian steakhouse – the ones that bring around those big skewers of meat – had the most amazing mashed potatoes. After a lot of coaxing (aka begging), they shared their garlic mashed potatoes recipe with me. I feel obliged to pass these potatoes on.

While it's delicious with those big cuts of meat, it would be just as amazing as a side dish with beef, chicken, pork or lamb. It's worth the calories, which are not as bad as you would think!

To make these steakhouse mashed potatoes you will need russet potatoes, sea salt, butter, fresh garlic, heavy cream, buttermilk, Parmesan cheese and green onions garnishing. The potatoes are simple to make and are destined to become your favorite mashed potatoes

Recipe Notes

  • If you prefer to leave the skin on your potatoes, that's fine. Just wash them well.
  • Do not over-mash the potatoes or they will become gummy. 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the potatoes into a pot and cover with water. Add the sea salt. Bring to a boil and cook until they are fall-apart tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. 
  2. While the potatoes cook, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the cream and cook until it begins to simmer, then remove from the heat. 
  3. Drain the potatoes and mash with a potato masher. Stir in the buttermilk and Parmesan cheese. 
  4. Pour the cream mixture into the potatoes and mash again. You want them creamy but not overly smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with butter and garnish with chopped green onions.
