A totally real, verified fact that we just made up: People who cook fancier weeknight dinners are more likely to receive a compliment from a stranger, meet their celebrity crush, and/or win the lottery. They’re also guaranteed to be rewarded with a delicious, steakhouse-quality meal without leaving the comforts of their own kitchen. Case in point: these seared sirloin steaks drizzled in a deluxe, sherry vinegar-spiked pan sauce with crispy, cheesy potato rounds, and a tangy mixed greens salad.

• Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil a baking sheet. Wash and dry produce. • Slice potatoes into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Halve, peel, and finely chop half the shallot (save remaining for another use). • In a small bowl, whisk together half the vinegar (you’ll use the rest later), 1 TBSP olive oil, and ½ tsp sugar (for 4 servings, use 2 TBSP olive oil and 1 tsp sugar). Season with salt and pepper.
• In a large bowl, combine potatoes, garlic powder, 2 TBSP olive oil (4 TBSP for 4 servings), and a couple big pinches of salt and pepper; toss until potatoes are completely coated. Arrange on prepared sheet in clusters (about 6 slightly overlapping slices each). • Roast on middle rack for 12 minutes, then sprinkle with Parmesan. • Return to middle rack until potatoes are tender and cheese is lightly browned, 10-12 minutes more.
• While potatoes roast, pat steak* dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. • Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook to desired doneness, 3-6 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; transfer to a cutting board to rest. Wipe out pan.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in same pan over medium heat. Add chopped shallot; cook, stirring, until softened, 1-2 minutes. • Pour in remaining vinegar. Simmer until reduced by half, 30 seconds. • Stir in stock concentrate and ¼ cup water (1⁄3 cup for 4 servings). Simmer until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat. • Stir in sour cream and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) until melted and combined. Season with salt and pepper.
• While sauce cooks, toss mixed greens in a second large bowl with as much vinaigrette as desired. Season with salt and pepper.
• Slice steak against the grain. • Divide steak, potato clusters, and salad between plates. Top steak with sauce and serve.
