    From the Test Kitchen

    For this steakhouse-inspired meal, you’ll combine softened butter with Calabrian chile paste—known for its tangy, complex heat—then dollop it atop delicious warm steaks. It’s all complete with a side of Italian panzanella (or bread salad), with perfectly toasted bread cubes and roasted vegetables tossed with a tangy oregano vinaigrette.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing

    Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the onion; cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges, keeping the layers intact. Peel 1 clove of garlic. Halve the baguettes lengthwise. Cut off and discard the stems of the bell peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then cut crosswise into 1-inch strips. Cut off and discard the stems of the shishito peppers. Throughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a large bowl, combine the onion wedges, bell pepper pieces, and prepared shishito peppers. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oregano, and mayonnaise; season with salt and pepper.

    Toast the baguettes & roast the vegetables
    2 Toast the baguettes & roast the vegetables

    To the bowl of prepared onion and peppers, add a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Reserving the bowl, transfer to a sheet pan and arrange in an even layer on one side. Place the halved baguettes, cut side up, on the other side. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast 7 to 9 minutes, or until the baguettes are lightly browned. Leaving the oven on, carefully transfer the toasted baguettes to a cutting board. Continue to roast the vegetables 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to a cutting board.

    Cook the steaks
    3 Cook the steaks

    Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes for medium-rare (125°F), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board; let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this. 

    Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, seafood or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
