What You’ll Need
- 8" medium pot with lid
- 12" large pan
Rinse potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces. Place in a medium pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Season water generously with salt, bring to a boil over high heat, and cook until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife tip, 9-10 minutes. While potatoes boil, halve lemon. Drain potatoes and return to pot, off heat. Immediately add juice of ½ lemon and 1 tablespoon olive oil and toss to coat. Taste and add salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice. Rinse remaining produce. Halve tomatoes. Pat lettuce dry with paper towel and separate large leaves for cups (you'll need at least 3 per person, but if you have extra, double up your cups!). Add lettuce leaves to serving plates.
Cook Steaks and Onion
Heat 1½ tablespoons olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat steaks dry with paper towel and season all over with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper. When oil is shimmering, add steaks. Scatter onion around and season with ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook until onion is softened and steaks are browned and medium rare, 4-6 minutes per side. Transfer steaks and onion to a plate to rest for about 5 minutes.
Make Garlic Paste
While steaks rest, mince garlic and sprinkle over ⅛ teaspoon salt. Using a large knife, carefully scrape over mixture at a 45° angle, pressing down. Repeat until garlic is broken down and a paste forms, and transfer to a medium bowl.
Make Caesar Dressing
Add anchovy paste, mayonnaise, grated Parmesan, and juice of remaining lemon to bowl with garlic paste and whisk until fully combined. Season with pepper, as desired.
Plate Caesar Steak Lettuce Cups
Halve steaks lengthwise, then thinly slice against the grain. Divide among lettuce cups and top with onion, lemon potatoes, and tomatoes. Drizzle Caesar dressing over everything and garnish with shaved Parmesan. Enjoy your well-deserved feast!
