A note about serious food allergies

Sometimes we dress up the steak, and sometimes we let it shine on its own. (But not completely naked; that's against the law.) Here, we give it love with slightly sweet steak seasoning, the perfect match for its own meaty flavor. Served with brown butter mashed potatoes and roasted carrots, this meal has so much sweet-umami-nutty flavor going on, you won't believe it all fits on one plate. 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!)

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using filets mignon, follow same instructions as sirloin in Steps 1 and 4, cooking until steaks reach desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and cut potatoes into large chunks.

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/2" slices on an angle.

    Mince dill (no need to stem).

    Pat steaks dry and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and steak seasoning.

  2. 2

    Mash the Potatoes

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes covered by lightly salted water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.

    Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    Add half the browned butter (prepared in a later step; reserve remaining for garnish), softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup water, and 1/4 tsp. salt to pot with potatoes. Mash until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes simmer, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Roast Carrots and Make Brown Butter

    Place carrots on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and 1/4 tsp. salt. Massage oil and salt into carrots.

    Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until fork-tender, 15-18 minutes.

    While carrots roast, place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add butter and stir occasionally until butter begins to smell “nutty,” turns golden, and brown flecks appear, 5-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Immediately transfer brown butter to a mixing bowl. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steaks

    Return pan used to brown butter to medium heat.

    Add 2 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan. Cook until browned and steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    Transfer steaks to a plate and rest, at least 5 minutes. Keep pan over medium heat.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Add 1/4 cup water, demi-glace, and any accumulated juices from resting steaks to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing steak on sauce. Top mashed potatoes with remaining brown butter and garnish carrots with dill. Bon appétit!
