    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Slice potatoes into thin rounds. Bring a medium pot with potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until softened, 10-12 minutes. While potatoes cook, peel and mince shallot. Trim ends off green beans. Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  • Step 2 - Make the Dauphinoise Potatoes

    Make the Dauphinoise Potatoes

    Strain softened potato slices in a colander and return to pot. Add cream, half the shallot (reserve remaining for sauce), half the Parmesan, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper to pot and stir gently. Transfer potatoes to prepared casserole dish. You may also use a small oven-safe pan. Top with remaining Parmesan and place on prepared baking sheet to catch any drips. Cook until cheese browns, 15-18 minutes. Rinse pot clean and reserve. While potatoes cook, cook steaks.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Steaks

    Cook the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan and cook until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-8 minutes per side. Remove steaks to a plate to rest and tent with foil. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Remember to always rest cooked meats before serving for juicier results.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Green Beans

    Cook the Green Beans

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-high heat and add ¼ tsp. olive oil, green beans, and ¼ cup water. Bring to a simmer and cook until bright green and tender, 2-4 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove green beans to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  • Step 5 - Make the Sauce

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook green beans to medium heat. Add ¼ tsp. olive oil and remaining shallot to hot pan. Cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add demi-glace and ⅓ cup water. Bring to a simmer and cook until just thick enough to coat back of a spoon, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and swirl in butter.
