From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
Tender, rich steaks find perfect complement in sides of Calabrian chile-parmesan toasts and a vibrant salad made with sage-roasted delicata and grapes, arugula, and honey mustard dressing.

TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
You’ll use butter, smashed garlic, and rosemary to spoon over (or baste) the steaks as they sear—an easy way to develop a delicious crust and imbue the meat with rich, aromatic flavors.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Quarter lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Cut crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces. Halve the grapes. Halve the baguettes. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash each clove once. Roughly chop the pistachios. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out the seeds. In a bowl, combine the half the softened butter and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. In a separate, large bowl, combine the honey, mustard, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (you may have extra), and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; whisk to combine.

Roast the squash & grapes
2 Roast the squash & grapes

Place the squash pieces, halved grapes, and sage on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Carefully discard the sage.

Toast the baguettes
3 Toast the baguettes

Meanwhile, place the halved baguettes on a separate sheet pan, cut side up. Evenly top with the Calabrian chile butter and half the parmesan. Toast in the oven 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned. Carefully transfer to a cutting board; halve on an angle.

Cook the steaks
4 Cook the steaks

Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both 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 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 5 minutes. Add the remaining softened butter, smashed garlic cloves, and rosemary sprigs. Cook, spooning the butter over the steaks, 1 to 3 minutes for medium-rare (125°F), or until browned, coated, and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a serving plate, topping with any remaining butter from the pan; 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.
