Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Sear the tomatoes

  • Cut away the cores from the tomatoes, then cut the tomatoes lengthwise into quarters. Season with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tomatoes, cut sides down, and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn the tomatoes to the other cut sides and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

2

Prep and cook the asparagus

  • Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus; cut the asparagus crosswise into 1-inch pieces. 

In the same pan used for the tomatoes, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the asparagus, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, start preparing the steaks.

3

Prep and cook the steaks

  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.

In another large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned and your desired doneness is reached. For medium-rare, that’s 4 to 6 minutes for rib-eyes and New York strips and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. 

Transfer the cooked steaks to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steaks into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. While the steaks are cooking and resting, prepare the remaining ingredients and the vinaigrette.

4

Prep the remaining ingredients; make the vinaigrette

  • Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate.
  • Tear the mozzarella into bite-size pieces; set aside for serving.

In a small bowl, stir together the balsamic vinegar, lime zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5

Make the garlic butter

In the same pan used for the steaks, add the butter and garlic butter base and cook over low heat, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the butter melts and the ingredients are incorporated, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to 2 [4] small serving bowls for dipping.

Serve

Transfer the steaks and asparagus to individual plates. Top the asparagus with the tomatoes and mozzarella and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Serve with the garlic butter on the side as a dipping sauce. Alternatively, drizzle the garlic butter on the steaks and serve.
