A note about serious food allergies
Tuscany is not only the birthplace of the Renaissance and the Medici family, but home to many a bright, yellow sunflower field. Bright… yellow… that's just part of our inspiration for this delicious corn sauté. The other part is fresh spinach and nutty Parmesan, along with a hint of garlic, making for a side that almost steals the sunshine from the steak. But not quite: this steak, with a cool Parmesan oregano sauce, is fit for a Medici (if they still existed). Let there be a renaissance in your kitchen, bringing you from the dark ages of living without this meal.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
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 filets mignon, follow same instructions as steak in Steps 1 and 3, searing until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until filets reach minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Remove ciabatta from oven after 6 minutes.
If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as steak in Steps 1 and 3, searing until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes. Remove ciabatta from oven after 6 minutes.
If using tuna, follow same instructions as steak in Step 1. In Step 3, cook tuna in hot pan over medium-high heat with 2 tsp. olive oil until it reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-5 minutes per side. Tuna is often enjoyed medium-rare (pink in the middle). For medium-rare, cook 1-2 minutes per side. Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness.
Prepare the Ingredients
Stem and coarsely chop oregano.
Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Make Sauce and Prepare Ciabatta
In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, 1 Tbsp. Parmesan (reserve remaining for corn sauté), oregano, 1 tsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. water, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
Place ciabatta halves on one side of prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Top evenly with half the garlic (reserve remaining for corn sauté) and 2 tsp. olive oil.
Cook the Steaks
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan. Sear until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer steaks to empty half of baking sheet. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Bake in hot oven until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees and ciabatta is lightly browned, 5-7 minutes.
Remove steaks to a plate and rest, 3 minutes.
While steaks roast, make corn sauté.
Make the Corn Sauté
Return pan used to sear steaks to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add corn to hot pan and stir occasionally until corn is lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
Add remaining garlic and spinach. Stir occasionally until spinach is wilted, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner and stir in ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
