Reheating time: 10-15 minutes
Yesterday was Earth Day! I totally didn’t mention it in the reheating instructions, but that’s okay, cause I’m gonna talk about it today. We all have a part to play in preserving our home planet. It’s the little things- saving power when you can, conserving water, maybe deciding to bike to work instead of drive, or carpool, or compost, or recycle. The small changes we can make in our every day lives make a difference when everyone does them. The diffusion of responsibility is real- with so many people living on this tiny rock orbiting the sun, it’s easy to feel that “well, nobody else is doing anything about it, so why should I?” Because together we can make a difference! I’m constantly trying to think of ways that we can make WECO more environmentally friendly- from using boxes made from recycled materials, to plastic containers that can be reused infinitely. Another big part of sustainability in our business is our sourcing. Tonight’s beef comes from Joyce Farms, which is a pretty special place. They practice regenerative agricultural practices, raising livestock with the lowest impact possible on their environment, and maintaining good soil health by rotating crops and grazing pastures. Returning nutrients to the earth ends up producing happier, more flavorful animals. Tonight’s steak is the perfect example of simplicity and flavor. And, it’s something you can feel good about eating. So, happy belated Earth Day everyone!
Get in there!
For the steak:
Set your oven to high broil. On a sheet tray lined with aluminum foil, spread out your steaks, and pop them under the broiler. Broil till caramelized and charred on the top side, about 3-4 minutes. Flip, and repeat. Once both sides have been “seared”, check the temp of the steaks, and if you desire a more cooked piece of beef, you can bake them in the oven with the asparagus and sweet potatoes till they’re done. Once it’s cooked to your liking, rest for a minute, then slice! Plate up your slices of steak with ample amounts of the pistachio + nettle romesco 🙂
For the sweet potato fries:
These are some of our favorite sweet potatoes yet. To reheat, bake in the oven at 425F until they are roasty toasty, about 6-8 minutes. Alternatively, you can just microwave them- but I would recommend baking for sure. Once they’re hot, plate them up with the pomegranate ketchup. Are you a drizzler or a dunker when it comes to ketchup? We want to know!
For the asparagus:
You can either bake the asparagus with the sweet potato fries, or broil it with the steak- each has their own merits. Broiling will caramelize and blister the asparagus, and baking will preserve the delicate flavors of caper and lemon. Maybe try both, and see what you like best! 5-6 minutes, till hot for broil/bake.
For the mixed greens:
You probably already know what to do here, but just in case- mix the greens and shaved veggies together in a large mixing bowl. Give them a season with some salt and pepper, toss with the honey mustard vinaigrette, and plate up! There you have it, folks. Steak frites like you’ve never had it before. Enjoy! #dinnersolved <3
