CHEF'S CUT: If you’re trying to get ahead in cooking your Easter meal, make the roasted potatoes ahead of time. They can be kept at room temperature for up to 1 hour. Just reheat them in a 400°F oven before you serve them.

Ingredients: 

  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
  • Salt
  • Ten 1-inch rosemary sprigs
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Two 1 pound rib-eye steaks 

Directions:

The Potatoes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. 
  2.  Peel and cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes
  3. Cover the potatoes with cold water in a large saucepan, add a large pinch of salt, and bring them to a boil. Simmer them over moderately high heat until they are tender, for about 12 minutes, and then drain them. 
  4. After draining them, place them back in the saucepan and shake them over moderately high heat until they are dry, for 10 seconds. 
  5. Spread the potatoes and rosemary sprigs on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle them with olive oil, season them with salt and black pepper, and toss them to coat them. 
  6. Roast them for 45 minutes, and be sure to stir them a few times, until they are sizzling and start to brown. Then tilt the baking sheet and pour off any excess oil. Continue to roast them for 15 minutes or longer, until they are browned and crisp. 

The Steaks:

  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. 
  2. Season the steaks with salt and black pepper, and grill them over high heat, turning once, until well-browned and medium-rare, 8 minutes.
  3. Let them rest for 5 minutes on a cutting board.
  4. Carve them into thick slices.

Sommelier suggestions: This goes beautifully with a good bottle of something red, rich, and full-bodied.

The Finale:

Cut your steaks into thick slices, and then serve them while they’re hot with the potatoes. Make sure to let the steaks rest - forgetting to do so is a common mistake when cooking steak. Check out our guide on how to avoid these common errors.
