Steaks with artichoke butter, green beans, and bell peppers
25 – 35 Minutes
Green beans and red bell peppers are simmered with tomatoes to form a nourishing, easy side for these seared steaks. Toasted coriander seeds give the vegetables a subtle citrusy flavor; they are also prized for their anti-inflammatory powers. For a luxe final touch, an easy compound butter mashed with chopped artichokes and dill goes on top of the steaks, melting into a rich sauce.
