What's better than a meaty, delicious, juicy steak? A meaty delicious juicy steak that has shallot and cheese on it. (We answered our own question there.) But that's not the only thing that's “better than better” in this meal. Potatoes topped with a buttery, briny green peppercorn mix and tomatoes roasted to crunchy panko-topped perfection are better than your average sides, at least in our humble opinion. What's better than this meal? Nothing.

  1. 1

    Start the Vegetables

    Cut potatoes into 2" dice. Halve tomatoes lengthwise. Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes. Spread into a single layer on half the baking sheet. Place tomatoes, cut side up, on empty half and top with ¼ tsp. salt, a pinch of pepper, and 1 tsp. olive oil. Roast in hot oven until potatoes are golden brown and tender, 30-35 minutes, flipping potatoes once halfway through. While vegetables roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly. Combine green peppercorns and softened butter in a mixing bowl, mashing until thoroughly combined. Set aside. Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Sear the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steaks to hot pan and sear undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Steaks and Vegetables

    Remove baking sheet from oven and push potatoes to one side. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Top potatoes evenly with green peppercorn butter. Top tomatoes evenly with panko and 1 tsp. olive oil. Add steaks to empty space on baking sheet and top evenly with cheese. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Roast again until panko is golden brown and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-10 minutes. Remove from oven and rest steaks, at least 3 minutes. While vegetables roast, make sauce.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan and stir occasionally until beginning to brown, 7-10 minutes. Add ¼ cup water, demi-glace, and white wine. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Once simmering, stir constantly until sauce slightly thickens, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping steaks with sauce. Bon appétit!
