Preheat oven to 450°F. Rinse all produce. Halve potatoes. If you have a zester and want to infuse your dish with even more flavor, zest up to ½ of lime, then halve. Trim and discard scallion roots and thinly slice on a diagonal. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice.
Season potatoes and onion
In a large heatproof bowl, toss potatoes and onion with gochujang, 1½ tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired to coat (gochujang is a bit spicy, but it’s what really flavors the potatoes here; feel free to use half for milder heat).
Roast gochujang potatoes
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Transfer gochujang potatoes and onion to prepared sheet and arrange cut-side down, in a single layer, spacing apart as much as possible. Roast until potatoes are tender and onion is slightly charred, 14-16 minutes. Wipe bowl from potatoes clean for Step 5.
While potatoes roast, pat steaks dry with paper towel and season all over with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add steaks to pan and sear until browned and medium rare, 4-6 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a plate and set aside to rest.
Make lime butter
While steaks sear, place butter in bowl from potatoes. Microwave in 10-second intervals until completely melted. Alternatively, melt butter in a small pot over medium heat, then pour into bowl from potatoes. Add lime zest (if using) and juice of ½ lime and stir to combine. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Use remaining lime to brighten a glass of water.
Plate seared steak
Once rested, cut steaks against the grain into ¼-inch slices. Divide gochujang-roasted potatoes between serving plates and serve sliced steak alongside. Drizzle over lime butter, then garnish with scallions. Enjoy!
