What we send
- 1red bell pepper
- 8 ouncesfingerling potatoes
- 1/8 ounceparsley
- 1yellow onion
- 1/4 cuptomato paste
- 1/4 cupwhite wine
- 1/2 ouncegrated Parmesan cheese
What You’ll Need
- olive oil
- kosher salt
- black pepper
- baking sheet
- 10" medium high-sided pan
Preheat oven to 450°F. Rinse all produce. Halve bell pepper lengthwise, discarding seeds and stem; cut lengthwise into ¼-inch strips. Halve potatoes lengthwise. Roughly chop parsley leaves and stems. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice.
On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and black pepper as desired. Arrange cut-side down in a single layer, spacing apart as much as possible, and roast until golden and tender, 15-18 minutes.
While potatoes roast, pat steaks dry with paper towel and season all over with ½ teaspoon salt and black pepper as desired. Heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in a medium high-sided pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add steaks to pan and sear until bottoms are browned, 4-6 minutes (steaks will finish cooking in the next step).
Once bottoms are browned, flip steaks, still over medium-high heat; scatter around bell pepper and onion in pan. Cook until steaks are browned and medium rare, 4-6 minutes more. Transfer steaks to cutting board to rest, leaving vegetables in pan, still over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion and bell pepper are softened, 3-4 minutes more. Stir in tomato paste and cook until combined, 1 minute more.
Simmer bell pepper sauce
To pan with vegetables, still over medium-high heat, add white wine and cook until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Add ½ cup water, stir to combine, and simmer until thickened, 2-4 minutes more. Remove pan from heat. Taste and season with salt and black pepper as desired.
Plate Italian pepper steak
Once rested, cut steaks against the grain into ¼-inch slices. Divide roasted fingerling potatoes between serving plates. Top with bell pepper sauce and sliced steak. Garnish with Parmesan and parsley. Enjoy!
