This recipe was featured in the June/July 2010 issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine. If you like a steakhouse supper with the works – including a great blue cheese-dressed salad – here’s a way to eat them all at once.
- 4 small strip steaks or 4 flatiron steaks, 6 to 8 ounces each
- 2 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes or other small potatoes
- Salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup beef consommé or beef stock
- 1 large shallot
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons honey or agave syrup
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- About 1/2 cup EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 3 tablespoons butter
- A few sprigs of sage
- 1 large clove garlic, crushed
- 1 small red onion, quartered and very thinly sliced
- 3 ribs celery from the heart, very thinly sliced on an angle
- 2 small bunches watercress or upland cress, trimmed
- 1 cup blue cheese crumbles
Yields: Serves 4
Take the chill off the steaks and preheat an outdoor grill or griddle pan to medium-high heat. In a pot, cover the potatoes with water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Uncover the pot, salt the water and cook the potatoes until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain, then return the potatoes to the pot and crack in half with a potato masher. Pour in the consommé (or stock).
While the potatoes are working, grate the shallot into a salad bowl. Add the mustard, honey (or agave), Worcestershire sauce and lots of pepper. Whisking constantly, stream in the EVOO; season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter on the grill, or, if you’re cooking on the stove, over low heat. Add the sage and garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove from the grill or reduce the heat to low. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and grill, turning occasionally, for about 8 minutes for medium. Baste the steaks with the garlic-sage butter during the last couple of minutes of cooking. Remove from the heat and let rest, then slice.
Toss the cooked potatoes, the onion, celery and watercress with the shallot dressing; sprinkle with the blue cheese. Serve with the sliced steak on top or alongside.
