  1. Peel the potatoes, wash under cold water and cut into large chunks (2-to-2 1/2-inch pieces). Place in a pot with water to cover and add the garlic and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and boil gently until the potatoes are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Pour directly into a food mill (placing a pot underneath to catch the cooking liquid, which can be retained for use in stocks, soups or bread). Push the potatoes through the food mill into a bowl. Add the butter and mix in thoroughly, then add the milk, mixing again until incorporated. Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper and stir in. Serve with the Salisbury steak with vegetable sauce, spooning some of the sauce over the potatoes.
