Ribeye and Roasted Garlic Pan Sauce
with Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus
If you’re serious about steak, you know that ribeye is the crème de la crème. Our chefs took it to the next level by topping it with an equally luxurious pan sauce. Here, roasted garlic and rich beef demi-glace mingle with the fond--the crispy bits and drippings left by the seared steak--to create a condiment that you’ll want to drizzle over just about everything. Speaking of delicious things to drizzle with sauce, we’re serving up sides of chive-flecked mashed potatoes and crisp roasted asparagus.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Thinly slice chives. Trim off and discard bottom 2 inches of asparagus. Place whole garlic cloves in the center of a 6-by-6-inch piece of aluminum foil; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Tightly seal into a packet.
Place foil packet with garlic on a baking sheet. Roast on middle rack for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, add asparagus to baking sheet. Toss with a large drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Return to oven and roast until garlic has softened and asparagus is browned and tender, about 10 minutes.
While garlic roasts, place potatoes in a large pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Boil until tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Reserve ½ cup cooking water, then drain. Return potatoes to pot; mash until smooth. Stir in sour cream, salt, and pepper. Add reserved cooking water, a splash at a time, until smooth. Keep covered.
While asparagus roasts, pat steak very dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add steak and cook to desired doneness, 2-4 minutes per side, depending on thickness of meat. (TIP: If steak has a layer of fat at the top, use tongs to flip meat and sear until fat is rendered and crispy.) Turn off heat; transfer to a cutting board to rest. Wipe out pan.
Once garlic is soft, transfer to a cutting board and mash with a fork. Melt 1 TBSP butter in pan used to cook steak. Add garlic (start with half and add more to taste) and cook for 1 minute. Add demi-glace and ⅓ cup water. Simmer until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in another 1 TBSP butter and any resting juices from steak. Season with salt and pepper.
Slice steak against the grain. Stir half the chives into potatoes. Divide potatoes, asparagus, and steak between plates. Top steak and potatoes with sauce. Garnish with remaining chives.
