    From the Test Kitchen

    For this steakhouse-style dish, we’re topping our seared steaks with tender mushrooms cooked with vinegar, sugar, and red pepper flakes—a nod to classic Italian agrodolce, or sweet-and-sour sauce. We’re serving it with a complementary side of roasted potatoes and brussels sprouts (sprinkled with parmesan cheese), then garnishing it all with piquant pickled peppers for bursts of tangy flavor.

    Seared Steaks & Mushroom Agrodolce with Roasted Squash & Brussels Sprouts
    Title
    • 2 Flank Steaks
    • ½ lb Brussels Sprouts
    • 2 Tbsps Balsamic Vinegar
    • 4 oz Mushrooms
    • 1 Tbsp Sugar
    • ½ oz Sweety Drop Peppers
    • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
    • 1 Tbsp Weeknight Hero Spice Blend (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Smoked Paprika & Whole Dried Parsley)
    • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
    • 1 Delicata Or Honeynut Squash
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds, then medium dice the squash. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Thinly slice the mushrooms.

    Roast the squash & brussels sprouts
    2 Roast the squash & brussels sprouts

    Place the diced squash and halved brussels sprouts in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat. Reserving the bowl, transfer to a sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 19 to 21 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to the reserved bowl. Add the parmesan; toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    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 a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side 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.

    While the steaks rest, in the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sugar, vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), 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 frequently and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the mushrooms are coated and the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
