    From the Test Kitchen

    To give this dish a sophisticated lift, we’re dolloping a rich, flavorful compound butter (simply butter combined with capers) onto savory pan-seared steaks. Sides of mashed potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts round out the plate on a comforting note.
    This recipe was designed with the option to be partially prepared in the Panasonic 4-in-1 Multi-Oven. Learn more about how the revolutionary all-in-one appliance can help you save time and counter space in your kitchen here.

    Steaks & Caper Butter with Mashed Potatoes & Roasted Brussels Sprouts
    Title
    • 2 Steaks
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • ½ lb Brussels Sprouts
    • 2 Tbsps Crème Fraîche
    • ¾ lb Potatoes
    • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
    • 1 oz Salted Butter
    • 1 Tbsp Capers
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Roughly chop the capers.

    2 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes and chopped garlic to the pot of boiling water and cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the crème fraîche; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    Roast & finish the brussels sprouts

    Meanwhile, place the halved brussels sprouts on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Evenly top with the vinegar; carefully stir to coat.

    Cook the steaks
    4 Cook the steaks

    Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare (125°F), 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; let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this. 

    Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, seafood or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.

    While the steaks rest, in a bowl, combine the softened butter and chopped capers. Mash 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 mashed potatoes and finished brussels sprouts. Top the steaks with the caper butter. Enjoy!
