A note about serious food allergies

The earth has a crust. Pies have a crust. Steaks? Darn tootin'. Or should we say, darn crustin'… in that this crust of pungent garlic and nutty Parmesan will have you saying this steak is darn delicious and I wish I had tasted that crust sooner. But speaking of the earth, root vegetables such as potatoes and parsnips match perfectly with the steak and crust. The magma? This analogy only goes so far. Enjoy your darn steak!

Before You Cook

  • 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Quarter potatoes lengthwise and cut into ½" pieces. Trim ends off parsnips and peel. Cut into ½" dice. Mince chives. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ¼" dice. Crush crispy garlic.

    Start the Vegetables

    Place a large oven-safe pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add potatoes and parsnips to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes.

    Cook the Filets

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add filets to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes. Transfer filets to prepared baking sheet, seared side up. Coat evenly with crispy garlic-Parmesan mixture. Roast in hot oven until filets reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Rest cooked steaks at least 3 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While steaks rest, make sauce.

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to sear steaks to medium-high heat and add wine, demi-glace, and ¼ cup water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Simmering liquids will still be bubbling slightly. Remove from burner and season with a pinch of pepper. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing filet on top of sauce. Bon appétit!
