  • Cutting Board
  • Chef Knife
  • Pot
  • Sheet Tray
  • 2 Saute pans
  • Mixing bowl
  • Tongs
  • Heat resistant spoon/spatula


  • 10 oz Steak
  • 8 oz Baby Potatoes
  • 2 each Carrots peeled, medium-large dice
  • 1 each Turnip medium dice
  • 1 stalk Celery large dice
  • 1 Tbsp Rosemary chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 each Lemon zest & juice
  • 2 Tbsp Parsley chopped
  • Olive Oil as needed
  • Salt as needed
  • Pepper as needed


  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • In a pot, add in the potatoes and water to cover. Cook until tender but not falling apart (about 10-12 minutes). Drain the potatoes and pour onto a sheet tray. Using the back of a cup lightly smash the potatoes so that they crush but don’t completely break apart. Drizzle with oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, and 2 cloves of garlic. Roast in the oven for 10-12 minutes on each side to get them crispy.
  • For the gremolata mix the lemon zest, juice, parsley, and 1 clove of garlic together. Season and let sit until steaks are ready.
  • Heat a saute pan and add in a bit of oil. Toss in the carrots, turnips and celery. Season and let cook until tender, about 7 minutes. Toss every so often.
  • Season the steak, sear it on each side in a pan with a bit of oil, and cook until your preferred doneness. Let rest a few minutes and finish with the gremolata.
  • Serve Steak on top of the potatoes and mixed veggies
  • Serve & Enjoy!
