From the Test Kitchen

A bit sweet and pleasantly herbal, fennel seeds are the key to tonight’s gourmet meal. We’re using them both whole and ground to season our steaks, along with rosemary and sage: in a hot pan, the blend forms a delicious crust. The dish comes together with roasted potato, tossed with aromatic garlic oil, and a sophisticated salad of crisp green beans, shaved parmesan, marinated shallot, and almonds.
