    From the Test Kitchen

    This hearty dish pulls inspiration from steak frites (or steak with french fries), which is classic French bistro fare. For our take, we’re topping seared steaks with a fragrant thyme butter, and serving it with oven-roasted fries and a bright lemon aioli for dipping.

    Seared Steaks & Thyme Butter with Oven Fries & Lemon Aioli
    Title
    • 2 Steaks
    • ½ lb Broccoli
    • 1 clove Garlic
    • 1 Lemon
    • ¾ lb Golden Or Red Potatoes
    • 1 bunch Thyme
    • 2 Tbsps Butter
    • 2 Tbsps Mayonnaise
    Prepare the vegetables
    1 Prepare the vegetables

    Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick sticks. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into large florets. Combine in a large bowl.

    Roast the vegetables
    2 Roast the vegetables

    Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the bowl of prepared vegetables. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Evenly divide the seasoned vegetables between two sheet pans; arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Prepare the remaining ingredients
    3 Prepare the remaining ingredients

    Meanwhile, quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Pick the thyme leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves.

    Cook the steaks
    4 Cook the steaks

    Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks and cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

    Make the aioli
    5 Make the aioli

    Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, the juice of 1 lemon wedge, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    While the steaks rest, place the softened butter in a bowl; add the juice of 1 lemon wedge and as much of the chopped thyme as you’d like. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to thoroughly combine. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the roasted vegetables and aioli on the side. Top the steaks with the thyme butter. Serve the remaining lemon wedges on the side, if you’d like. Enjoy!
