    Tips from Home Chefs

    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. Medium dice the potatoes.

    2 Roast the carrots

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the carrot pieces on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Turn to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    3 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Meanwhile, add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the mascarpone and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    4 Cook the steak

    Pat the steak dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steak. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a sheet pan. Roast in the oven 5 to 9 minutes for medium-rare (125°F), or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board; let rest at least 10 minutes. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steak[s] 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.

    5 Make the pan sauce

    To the pan of reserved fond, add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and half the maple syrup. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly and scraping up any fond, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Turn off the heat. Stir in the butter until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    6 Slice the steak & serve your dish

    Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steak; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steak with the mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. Top the steaks with the pan sauce. Top the carrots with the remaining maple syrup. Enjoy!
