Instructions

1

Prepare oven, marinate meat:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Rub steaks evenly on both sides with salt, garlic powder and sate paste. Set aside to marinate at room temperature. Meanwhile:
*Break apart romanesco into bite-sized pieces.
*Thinly slice green onions.
*Mince cilantro.

2

Roast romanesco

Toss romanesco with a sprinkle of oil and salt. Place in preheated oven and roast until soft and slightly charred, 10 to 12 minutes.

3

Grill meat, make sauce

Heat grill or saute pan on high with 1 tablespoon oil. Once hot, place steak into pan (it should sizzle immediately) and press down. Cook until brown and slightly caramelized on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Once cooked, let rest for 10 minutes off the heat. While that’s browning:
*Make meat sauce by combining soy, green onions, fried garlic and half of cilantro, reserving the rest for the romanesco. Stir in 1 teaspoon oil and set aside.

Toss romanesco, plate

When romanesco is ready, remove from oven and let cool slightly. Toss in a bowl with a drizzle of oil, salt, chile sauce, cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Divide evenly among two plates alongside steak. Top steak with sauce or serve on the side.
