  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using filets mignon, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 1 and 3, cooking until filets reach minimum internal temperature, 5-8 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 1 and 3, cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Slice potatoes into thin rounds. Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave, 3 minutes. While potatoes microwave, mince chives. Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Bake the Gratin

    Add cream base, garlic pepper, ½ tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. pepper to bowl with potatoes and gently mix until combined. Transfer potato mixture to prepared casserole dish and top evenly with Parmesan. For best results, use a 2-cup casserole dish. Place casserole dish on prepared baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake in hot oven until golden brown, 18-22 minutes. While gratin bakes, cook steaks.

  3. 3

    Cook the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan and cook until browned and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. Remove steaks to a plate and tent with foil. Rest, at least 5 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Make the Bordelaise Sauce

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium heat. Add demi-glace, 2 Tbsp. water, 1 tsp. tomato paste (if you have any left over, use as you please!), and red wine to hot pan. Stir to combine, then bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir often until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and swirl in butter. For a smoother texture, strain sauce through a wire-mesh strainer.

  5. 5
