A note about serious food allergies

Steak and potatoes sounds very classic, very normal, and very boring. But each one in this meal has some little twist to make it new and thrilling. The meaty steak has a melty-good topping of tangy goat cheese and rich walnuts. The potatoes are dusted in pot roast seasoning, which sounds strange, but trust us, gives them a richness and depth of flavor beyond a simple spud. Still classic, but with a twist… that's the Home Chef way. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)

  1. 1

    Start the Fries

    Cut potatoes into 1/2" fries and pat dry.

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, seasoning blend, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Spread into a single layer on one side and bake in hot oven until starting to brown, 15 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven and gently flip. Potatoes will finish cooking in a later step.

    While potatoes roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and mince shallot.

    Coarsely chop walnuts.

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/4" slices on an angle.

    In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and goat cheese. Set aside.

    Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Roast Carrots and Finish Fries

    In another mixing bowl, combine carrot with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Add carrot to empty half of baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Be careful! Baking sheet will be hot.

    Roast again until potatoes are golden brown and carrots are tender, 15-17 minutes.

    While potatoes and carrots roast, cook steaks.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add steaks to hot pan and sear undisturbed until browned on one side, 5-7 minutes.

    Flip, and top evenly with goat cheese mixture. Cook, 3 minutes.

    Cover pan, and cook until cheese is melted and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-4 minutes.

    Transfer steaks to a plate and rest 5 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    While steaks rest, make sauce.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot and stir constantly until softened, 1-2 minutes.

    Add demi-glace and 2 Tbsp. water. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Once simmering, remove from burner and stir in butter.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing steaks on shallot-demi sauce, and garnishing steaks with walnuts. Bon appétit!
