    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Remove the spreadable 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. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch-thick sticks. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Quarter and deseed the lemon.

    Prepare & roast the oven fries
    2 Prepare & roast the oven fries

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the potato sticks in a bowl; drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and all but a pinch of the spice blend. Toss to coat. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    3 Cook the steaks

    Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare (125ºF), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and 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.

    Cook the kale
    4 Cook the kale

    Meanwhile, in the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Stir in the juice of 2 lemon wedges. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; thinly slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the oven fries and cooked kale. Top the steaks with the softened butter. Serve the remaining lemon wedges on the side, if you'd like. Enjoy!
