Sirloin Steak Provençal
with Roasted Asparagus, Potatoes & Garlic Aioli
Does your local steakhouse season their steaks with herbs de Provence? Non? Quelle missed opportunity! We sizzle this magical blend of southern French aromatics in a pool of butter to baste juicy sirloin steaks. Can you already taste the rosemary and tarragon? Maybe a soupçon of lavender? We stepped up the sides, too: a rich pan sauce for the steak, roasted asparagus and potato wedges, and roasted garlic aioli for dipping. It all adds up to a gourmet meal that is 100 percent magnifique.

• Adjust rack to top position (top and middle positions for 4 servings) and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Cut potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges. Trim and discard woody bottom ends from asparagus; cut stalks crosswise into 1-inch pieces. • Pat steak* dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature until ready to cook.
• Toss potatoes on one side of a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. (For 4 servings, spread out across entire sheet.) Peel garlic and place in the center of a small piece of foil. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Cinch into a packet and place on same sheet. • Roast on top rack until everything is browned and tender, 28-30 minutes (you’ll add more to the sheet after 18 minutes).
• Once potatoes have roasted 18 minutes, remove sheet from oven. Carefully toss asparagus on empty side with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. (For 4 servings, add asparagus to a second sheet; roast on middle rack.) • Roast until asparagus is tender and lightly browned, 10-12 minutes more. • Meanwhile, trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Halve, peel, and mince onion until you have 2 TBSP (4 TBSP for 4).
• Pat steak dry with paper towels again. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook until browned on one side, 3-6 minutes. Flip and lower heat to medium. • Add 1 tsp Herbes de Provence (we sent more) and 2 TBSP butter to pan (2 tsp Herbes de Provence and 4 TBSP butter for 4 servings). Carefully tilt pan toward you. Using a spoon, continually baste steak with butter until it reaches desired doneness, 6-9 minutes more. • Transfer steak to a cutting board to rest at least 5 minutes (leave butter in pan)
• Heat pan used for steak over medium- high heat; add minced onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 minutes. • Add scallion whites; cook until softened, 1-2 minutes. • Stir in stock concentrate and ¼ cup water (1⁄3 cup for 4 servings). Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat.
• Carefully transfer roasted garlic to a cutting board; mash with a fork. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise with as much garlic as you like. Season with salt and pepper. • Slice steak against the grain. • Divide steak, potatoes, and asparagus between plates. Stir any resting juices from steak into pan sauce. Spoon sauce over steak; garnish with scallion greens. Serve with garlic aioli on the side.
