Cooking Steps

  1. Boil Potatoes

    Boil Potatoes

    Rinse potatoes and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place in a medium pot and cover with cold water. Season water generously with salt, bring to a boil over high heat, and cook potatoes until 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 as needed. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice. Mince garlic. Rinse remaining produce. Halve tomatoes. Pull off 6 large lettuce leaves. Snack on remainder or save for a sandwich or burger. Pat steak dry with paper towel.
  3. Cook Steak and Onion

    Cook Steak and Onion

    Heat 1½ tablespoons olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season steak all over with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. When oil is shimmering, add steak. Scatter onion around, seasoning with ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook until onion is softened and steak is browned on outside and medium rare, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove steak and onion from pan and set aside to rest for about 5 minutes.
  4. Make Garlic Paste

    Make Garlic Paste

    While steak rests, place garlic on a cutting board 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.
  5. Make Caesar Dressing

    Make Caesar Dressing

    In a medium bowl, whisk together anchovy paste, mayonnaise, pecorino, garlic paste, and juice of remaining lemon until fully combined.
  6. Plate Steak

    Plate Steak

    Thinly slice steak against the grain, then halve in the opposite direction. Divide between lettuce leaves and top with onion, potatoes, and tomatoes. Drizzle Caesar dressing over everything and garnish with Parmesan. Enjoy your well-deserved feast!
