Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C. Set out two sheet pans.
  2. If made ahead, take herb-garlic butter out of the fridge and put it near the warm oven so it softens to room temperature.
  3. On the first sheet pan, toss broccoli with olive oil, red pepper flakes, and some salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven.
  4. Toss potatoes with first portion of cooking oil, Italian seasoning, and some salt and pepper. Spread potatoes out on second sheet pan. Transfer to the oven.
  5. Cook vegetables until golden brown and tender, ~20 minutes for broccoli and 25 to 30 minutes for potatoes (depending on thickness of potato wedges).
  6. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet with second part of cooking oil over medium heat. Sear steak on both sides until it reaches your desired level of doneness - Medium-rare: 130F / 54C degrees (~3 minutes per side); Medium: 140F / 60C degrees (~4 minutes per side); Well-done: 160F / 71C degrees (~6 minutes per side).
  7. Remove steak from heat and transfer to a cutting board. Cover steak and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  8. When vegetables are done cooking, squeeze lemon juice over broccoli.
  9. Slice steak and serve with vegetables. Spoon herb-garlic butter over steak (and over vegetables if you’d like). Enjoy!

It was in the '90s today and I didn't want to heat up the house, so I did this all on the grill. I parcooked the fries in the microwave for 3 minutes and then mix them with oil and through them on a grill pan on the grill. I did the same thing with the broccoli toward the end of cooking time. Cooked my steaks on the other side of the grill. Everything was so good!

Great summer meal. Cooked the steak on the grill and the fries in the air fryer. Skipped the broccoli this time.
