    From the Test Kitchen

    For a unique spin on classic steak and potatoes, we’re serving our juicy steaks alongside pillowy dumplings of potato-based gnocchi—cooked briefly, then finished in a pan with garlic and capers to develop an irresistibly golden brown, crispy exterior. To give the steaks a bright, aromatic lift, we’re topping them with a delicious aioli, which simply combines mayonnaise and punchy garlic paste.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the aioli
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the aioli

    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. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Peel 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop 1 clove. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the remaining clove into a paste. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Season with salt and pepper.

    Cook the steaks
    2 Cook the steaks

    Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 1 to 2 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; 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.
    Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, seafood or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. 

    Cook the kale
    3 Cook the kale

    Heat the pan of reserved fond on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and 1/4 cup of water. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the gnocchi
    4 Cook the gnocchi

    Add the gnocchi to the pot of boiling water. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until the gnocchi float to the top of the pot. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly.

    5 Finish the gnocchi

    In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the cooked gnocchi in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chopped garlic, capers, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Turn off the heat. 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 gnocchi and cooked kale. Top the steaks with the aioli. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
