tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potatoes lengthwise; cut crosswise into ½-inch pieces. Grate the cheese on the small side of a box grater. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the collard green leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then thinly slice the leaves. Quarter and deseed the lemon

Make the cheesy potatoes:
2 Make the cheesy potatoes:

Place the potato pieces on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Evenly top the potatoes with the grated cheese. Return to the oven and roast 2 to 4 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven.

Cook the steaks:
3 Cook the steaks:

Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons 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.** Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

* An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Make the chile butter:
4 Make the chile butter:

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine 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. Using a fork, mash to thoroughly combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the collard greens:
5 Cook the collard greens:

While the steaks rest, add the chopped garlic to the pan of reserved fond (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the sliced collard greens; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the collard greens are 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.

Slice the steaks & serve your dish:
6 Slice the steaks & serve your dish:

Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the cheesy potatoes and cooked collard greens. Top the steaks with the chile butter. Serve the remaining lemon wedges on the side. Enjoy!
