From the Test Kitchen

As the cooler months arrive, sometimes all we want is classic comfort food—like a hearty steak-and-potato dinner. Here, we’re boiling our potato with whole garlic cloves before mashing it, imbuing the irresistible side with aromatic notes. (Tangy crème fraîche and a drizzle of olive oil lend the mashed potato delicious creaminess.) To complete this satisfying meal, we’re adding crispy sautéed broccoli, dressed with a bit of lemon to balance the rich steak.

Cook & mash the potato:
2 Cook & mash the potato:

Add the potato and garlic to the pot of boiling water and cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Off the heat, add the crème fraîche and a drizzle of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency; season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place.

Cook the steak:
3 Cook the steak:

While the potato cooks, pat the steak dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steak and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side 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 set aside to rest for at least 5 minutes.

Cook the broccoli:
4 Cook the broccoli:

While the steak rests, add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan of reserved fond; heat on medium-high until hot. Add the broccoli and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add ¼ cup of water and cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond from the bottom of the pan, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the water has cooked off and the broccoli has softened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the lemon zest and the juice of 2 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Finish & plate your dish:
5 Finish & plate your dish:

Find the lines of muscle (or grain) of the rested steak; thinly slice crosswise against the grain. Divide the sliced steak, mashed potato and cooked broccoli between 2 dishes. Garnish with the remaining lemon wedges. Enjoy!
