Jazz up frozen mashed potatoes by drizzling them with a bit of truffle oil for a quick but impressive side to accompany this easy dish. Place fresh green beans in a bowl with a little water. Microwave 3 minutes or until the beans are done.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 steak and about 1/4 cup sauce)
