From the Test Kitchen

We’re giving this steakhouse-style dish an Asian twist thanks to sweet soy glaze spooned over our seared steaks, and a side of carrots and zucchini coated with soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, and togarashi—a vibrant, complex blend that highlights dried orange peel, paprika, and sesame seeds. Our other side of smooth mashed potatoes rounds out the dish on a hearty note.
