From the Test Kitchen

2 Make the croutons & start the panzanella

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced baguette; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and toasted. Transfer to the bowl of prepared vegetables. Wipe out the pan.

Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and half the Italian seasoning. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Turn off the heat. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.
