  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and cut sweet potato into evenly-sized large chunks. Bring a medium pot with sweet potato chunks covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes. Reserve 1 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot. Add cream cheese, garlic salt (reserve a pinch for asparagus) and 2 Tbsp. potato cooking water. If too thick, add remaining potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside. While potato boils, peel and slice shallot into very thin rounds. Trim woody ends off asparagus. Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Asparagus

    Place asparagus on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and remaining garlic salt. Massage oil and seasoning into asparagus. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 10-12 minutes. While asparagus cooks, fry shallot.

  3. 3

    Fry the Shallot

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Test oil temperature by adding a piece of shallot to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat. Add shallot to hot pan and stir occasionally until browned and crispy, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steak

    Return pan used to cook shallot to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan. Sear undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to second prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Roast until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-9 minutes. Rest cooked steaks at least 3 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Coarsely chop pecans. Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-high heat. Add demi-glace and 2 Tbsp. water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner. Stir in butter and pecans. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping steak with sauce and sweet potatoes with crispy shallots and goat cheese (crumbling with your hands if needed). Bon appétit!
