How to Make Caesar Steak Lettuce Cups with Lemon Potatoes

kosher salt
black pepper
1½ tablespoons olive oil
10 ounces hanger steak
1 cup cherry tomatoes
½ red onion
6 leafs Boston lettuce
⅙ bunch parsley
8 ounces redskin potatoes
1 lemon
1 clove garlic
¼ teaspoon anchovy paste
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon grated pecorino cheese
2 tablespoons shaved Parmesan cheese

1. Prepare Ingredients

Rinse steak and pat dry with paper towel. Cut into ½-inch cubes. Rinse cherry tomatoes and halve. Peel onion and thinly slice. Rinse lettuce. Rinse parsley and roughly chop leaves, discarding stems. Rinse potatoes and cut into ¾-inch pieces. Zest lemon, then halve. Mince garlic.

2. Boil Potatoes

In a medium pot over high heat, add potatoes and a generous pinch salt. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Boil until fork tender, 8-10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a medium bowl. Immediately toss with parsley, lemon zest, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.

3. Make Caesar Dressing

While potatoes boil, on a clean dry surface, sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over minced garlic and using a large knife, carefully scrape over mixture at a 45° angle, pressing down. Repeat until garlic is broken down and a paste forms. In a medium bowl, combine garlic paste, juice of 1 lemon, anchovy paste, mayonnaise, and grated pecorino. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Set aside.

4. Cook Steak

Heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season steak all over with salt and pepper. When oil is shimmering, add steak and onion and cook until steak is browned on outside and medium rare, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove steak and onion from pan and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.

5. Assemble Lettuce Cups

Divide tomatoes and steak and onion mixture among lettuce leaves. Drizzle over Caesar dressing.

6. Plate Lettuce Cups

Divide potatoes and lettuce cups evenly between 2 plates. Garnish lettuce cups with shaved Parmesan and serve.
