A note about serious food allergies

There's a lot of ways we could try and get you to love this delectable steak and potatoes meal: Have it send you flowers, for example. But we'll stick with the tried and true way, flavors that romance the taste buds. Juicy steak gets crowned with a butter-and-herb combo that blesses every bite with pure buttery delight. Cheesy mashed potatoes and fresh zucchini round out a meal that makes you love it, one bite at a time. Tip: Easier way to mince chives? Line up chive sprigs so they're all going one direction. Use your knife in a rocking motion to chop finely until the herbs are properly minced!

    Cut potatoes into large evenly-sized chunks.

    Mince chives.

    Mince garlic.

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

  2. 2

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Bring a medium pot with potato chunks and 1 tsp. salt covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.

    Reserve 1/4 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    Add sour cream, seasoning blend, cheese, half the butter (reserve remaining for garlic-herb butter), and 1/4 tsp. salt to pot. Mash until smooth. If potatoes are too dry, add reserved potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes boil, cook steaks.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add steaks to hot pan and cook until browned and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Transfer steaks to a plate and tent with foil. Rest, at least 3 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
