Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and cut potatoes into chunks. Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" slices at an angle. Mince dill, leaves and stems.
    Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and coffee rub.

  • Step 2 - Mash the Potatoes

    Mash the Potatoes

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until fork-tender, 12-16 minutes. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot with half the brown butter (reserve remaining for topping), 2 Tbsp. cream, and ¼ tsp. salt. Brown butter is made in a later step. Mash until desired consistency is reached. If necessary, add an additional 1-2 Tbsp. cream. Cover and set aside. While potatoes simmer, roast carrot.

  • Step 3 - Roast Carrot Slices and Make Brown Butter

    Roast Carrot Slices and Make Brown Butter

    Place carrot slices on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and ¼ tsp. salt. Massage oil into carrots. Spread into a single layer and roast until fork-tender, 15-18 minutes. While carrot roasts, add butter to a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until butter begins to smell “nutty,” turns golden, and brown flecks appear, 5-6 minutes. Immediately transfer brown butter to a bowl. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Steaks

    Cook the Steaks

    Return pan used to brown butter to medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan and cook until dark-brown crust forms and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. If rub starts to burn, reduce heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Remove steaks to a plate and rest 5 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 5 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium heat and add ¼ cup water, demi-glace, and any accumulated juices from resting steaks. Stir occasionally until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner.
