    From the Test Kitchen

    This steakhouse-style recipe gets a bold lift in two ways: an irresistibly creamy tomatillo-poblano sauce that tops the steaks and the smoky spice blend (which stars two kinds of paprika) we’re using to coat the roasted potatoes underneath.

    • 4 Steaks
    • 1¼ lbs Golden Or Red Potatoes
    • 2 Zucchini
    • 4 oz Sweet Peppers
    • 2 Scallions
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • ½ cup Sour Cream
    • ⅓ cup Tomatillo-Poblano Sauce
    • 1 Tbsp Sherry Vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp Smoky Spice Blend (Smoked Paprika, Sweet Paprika, Ground Yellow Mustard, Garlic Powder & Onion Powder)
    • 1 Shallot
    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. Medium dice the potatoes. Medium dice the zucchini.  Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then large dice. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. In a bowl, combine the diced peppers, chopped shallot, chopped garlic, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sour cream and tomatillo-poblano sauce. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

    Roast the potatoes
    2 Roast the potatoes

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the diced potatoes on the foil. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Carefully transfer to a large bowl. Cover with foil to  keep warm.

    3 Cook the steaks

    Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large 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 browned and 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. Cover with foil to keep warm.

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