The caprese salad is pretty impeccable as it is. Creamy mozzarella, juicy tomatoes, aromatic basil, and a resemblance to the colors of the tricolor flag—could there be a more perfect example of Italian culinary excellence? Our chefs didn’t think it could be improved upon, until they tried adding steak. The tender texture and deep flavor of thin-cut minute steaks gives the salad just what it needs to go from a side dish to a dinnertime star in its own right.

Pat steak dry with paper towels. Season generously all over with salt and pepper. Around the same time that the potatoes are halfway done roasting (about 12 minutes after they've gone in the oven), heat 1 TBSP oil and 1 TBSP butter in a large pan over high heat. Add steak and cook until browned on bottom, 2-3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until browned on other side, about 2 minutes more.
