Ingredient IQ

Chermoula is a flavorful North African herb sauce traditionally served with seafood, but it is also delicious with poultry, meat, or vegetables. It is often bright red from the addition of paprika. Ours, in contrast, is vibrant green from a mix of parsley, cilantro, and lime.

Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Roast the vegetables

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Cut the broccoli into florets; trim any coarse stems.
  • On a sheet pan, toss the broccoli and tomatoes with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, until the broccoli is just tender and lightly browned and the tomato skins are starting to blister, 12 to 15 minutes.
    While the vegetables roast, prepare the steaks.

2

Prep and cook the steaks

  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
For the top sirloins and filet mignons:
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare for top sirloins and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes.

For the rib-eyes:
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning once, until well browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes.

While the steaks cook and rest, prepare the cilantro and finish the vegetables.

3

Prep the cilantro; dress the vegetables

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In a large bowl, toss together the roasted vegetables and half the basil-walnut pesto (set aside the remaining pesto for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the steaks and roasted vegetables to individual plates. Top the steaks with the chermoula, garnish with the cilantro, and serve the remaining pesto on the side.
