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.

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

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, add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Add the seasoned steaks; cook 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until 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.

To the bowl of lemon juice, add half the parmesan and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Stir to combine. Add the roasted cauliflower; toss to coat.

Serve the sliced steaks with the finished cauliflower and mashed potatoes. Top the steaks with the chive butter. Garnish the cauliflower with the remaining parmesan. Enjoy!
