Steak and potatoes never looked—or tasted—so good. In this gourmet dish, we’re pan-searing juicy sirloin steaks to give them a browned, savory exterior. They pair effortlessly with beautiful purple potatoes (which owe their color to subtly fruity antioxidants), mashed together with butter and piquant scallions. And to complete the meal, we’re adding a second gorgeous side: summery green beans, sautéed with cherry tomatoes and finished in a tarragon-butter sauce.
