To pair with spiced steaks, we’re making our take on spoonbread—a Southern cornbread-like dish so-named for its fluffy, spoonable texture—with tender bites of spinach and melty white cheddar cheese. A zesty side of roasted broccoli topped with fresh lemon juice rounds out the dish on a bright note.

ingredients
Seared Steaks & Roasted Broccoli with Cheesy Spinach Spoonbread
Title
  • 4 Steaks
  • 1 cup Cornbread Mix
  • 5 oz Baby Spinach
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 1 lb Broccoli
  • 1 Lemon
  • ½ cup Sour Cream
  • 2 oz White Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Hot Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Southern Spice Blend (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Ground Yellow Mustard, Smoked Paprika & Cayenne Pepper)
Prepare & start the spoonbread:
1 Prepare & start the spoonbread:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Arrange two oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and medium dice the onion. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted. Transfer to a large bowl. Wipe out the pan. 

Assemble & bake the spoonbread:
2 Assemble & bake the spoonbread:

To the bowl of cooked onion and spinach, add the cornbread mix, sour cream, and 1/4 cup of water. Mix until just combined. Transfer to a 11-inch by 6-inch (or 8-inch square) baking dish and spread into an even layer. Top with the grated cheese. Place on the upper oven rack. Bake 17 to 19 minutes, or until the filling is just set (a toothpick inserted into the center should come out with a few moist crumbs). Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes before serving. 

Prepare & roast the broccoli:
3 Prepare & roast the broccoli:

Meanwhile, cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Place on the lower oven rack. Roast 16 to 18 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Cook the steaks:
4 Cook the steaks:

Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season on all sides with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon 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.* 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.

Finish & serve your dish:
5 Finish & serve your dish:

Meanwhile, to make the sauce, in a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, honey (kneading the packet before opening), hot sauce, and a pinch of the remaining spice blend (you will have extra). Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Evenly top the roasted broccoli with the juice of all 4 lemon wedges; carefully toss to coat. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the finished broccoli and baked spoonbread. Top the steaks with the sauce. Enjoy!
