Crunch crunch crunch! No, we're not eating potato chips right in your ear… we would never be so rude! We're instead describing the amazing textures of this meal, and the contrasts therein. The tender steak topped with bacon, panko, and green onions, adding a salty, crunchy hit. The potato rounds get “loaded” with panko as well, as well as garlicky salt and pepper and, of course, cheese. Get to crunching! (Away from our ears, please.)

  1. 1

    Roast the Potatoes

    Slice potatoes into 1/4" rounds.

    Place potato rounds on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, garlic salt, garlic pepper, half the panko (reserve remaining for topping), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until lightly browned, 20-25 minutes.

    Top roasted potato rounds with a pinch of salt and cheese.

    While potatoes roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  3. 3

    Make the Topping

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a small non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add bacon and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir occasionally, 1 minute.

    Add remaining panko and a pinch of salt. Stir occasionally until beginning to brown, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer topping to towel-lined plate. Let cool, 5 minutes.

    Once cooled, add half the green portions of green onions (reserve remaining for garnish). Set aside.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-high heat. Add 2 Tbsp. water and demi-glace to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cook until slightly reduced and thickened, 30-60 seconds.

    Stir in half the sour cream (reserve remaining for garnish) until combined. Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping steaks with topping and sauce. Garnish potatoes with remaining sour cream and remaining green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
