Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves.

Roast the potatoes:
2 Roast the potatoes:

Place the potato wedges on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 25 to 27 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Cook the steaks:
3 Cook the steaks:

While the potatoes roast, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a medium 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 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.

Cook & glaze the mushrooms:
4 Cook & glaze the mushrooms:

While the steaks rest, add the sliced mushrooms and shallot in an even layer to the pan of reserved fond (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 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 vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and ½ cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the vegetables are coated and most of the liquid has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook & finish the kale:
5 Cook & finish the kale:

While the mushrooms cook, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat half the ghee (you will have extra) on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped kale; 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); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and the water has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl. Add the crème fraîche or crema bel paese; stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
