    From the Test Kitchen

    These steaks get an extra savory lift from a pan sauce made with savory-sweet hoisin sauce and citrusy ponzu. For more dynamic flavor, we're serving the steaks with a side of rice cooked with a classic trio of aromatics: garlic, ginger, and scallions.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; quarter lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 1 tablespoon (you may have extra). Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops.

    Roast the carrots
    2 Roast the carrots

    Place the carrot pieces on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Cook the rice
    3 Cook the rice

    Meanwhile, carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic, chopped ginger, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    Cook the steaks
    4 Cook the steaks

    Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare (125°F), 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.

    Make the pan sauce
    5 Make the pan sauce

    To the pan of reserved fond, add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly reduced in volume. Add the hoisin sauce, ponzu sauce, vinegar, and half the butter. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the liquid is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Add the remaining butter to the pot of cooked rice; stir until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the finished rice and roasted carrots. Top the steaks with the pan sauce. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
