Pesto Roasted Potatoes Ingredients:
Caesar Salad Ingredients:
For the Steak:
Season the steaks generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.
- In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients to combine, or add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and emulsified
- Pour the marinade over the steaks and cover for at least 2 hours. You can also combine the steaks and marinade in a ziploc bag and refrigerate.
- Pull your steaks from the fridge an hour before you plan to grill them to allow them to come to room temperature. This ensures more even grilling.
Preheat your grill to high heat. Sear the steaks for about 3-4 minutes per side for rare- medium-rare, adjusting the time to your desired doneness.
- Remove the steaks from the heat and let them rest with a generous pad of butter on top for a few minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, and not run out as soon as you slice.
Pesto Roasted Potatoes:
Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
In a large bowl, toss the potatoes with the pesto, olive oil, salt, and black pepper until they are well coated. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Roast in the preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes or until they are crispy and golden brown, flipping them halfway through for even cooking.
- Remove the roasted potatoes from the oven, sprinkle with fresh parsley, and toss lightly.
In a large bowl, combine the chopped romaine lettuce, parmesan, bacon bits and Caesar dressing. Toss until the lettuce is well coated.
Add the croutons just before serving. Toss again to combine. Season with freshly ground black pepper to taste
Assemble the Meal:
Slice the rested steak into thin strips.
- Arrange the steak slices on a plate alongside a portion of roasted potatoes and a generous serving of Caesar salad.
Garnish the Caesar salad with extra Parmesan cheese and croutons, if desired. Serve immediately with lemon wedges for an extra burst of flavor.
