    From the Test Kitchen

    For hearty complement to seared steaks, you’ll make a savory combination of golden potatoes and melty gouda—mashed together delightfully cheesy finish. A simple side of romanesco cauliflower topped with tangy parmesan, garlic, and zesty lemon lends even more rich flavor to the dish.

    Title
    • 4 Steaks
    • 1¼ lbs Golden Or Red Potatoes
    • 1 Lemon
    • 1 clove Garlic
    • 1 head Romanesco Cauliflower
    • 1 bunch Chives
    • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
    • 4 oz Smoked Gouda Cheese
    • 2 Tbsps Butter
    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; preheat to 450°F. 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. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut out and discard the core of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Grate the gouda on the large side of a box grater. Thinly slice the chives. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl, straining out the seeds. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste.

    Roast the cauliflower
    2 Roast the cauliflower

    Place the cauliflower florets on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.
