Cooking time

20 minutes




570 /serving

This one’s for the key steak-holders in your life. Beefy cuts of top sirloin need just a quick turn in the pan to achieve the ideal sear on the surface. Arranged in juicy slices, they receive a nifty vinaigrette that has red meat written all over it: simply whisk together roasted red pepper spread, apple cider vinegar, scallion and olive oil. Flank the beef with tender-crisp string beans sautéed in garlic, along with finely textured orzo.

Boil the orzo
Add the orzo to the pot of boiling water and boil, 9 to 10 min., until just tender. Drain and rinse. Return to the pot and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Keep warm.

Cook the steaks
Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towel; season with ⅔ of the spices and S&P. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the steaks* and cook, 3 to 5 min. per side, until cooked as desired (to ensure a consistent temperature throughout, turn over at least twice). Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Make the vinaigrette
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the roasted red pepper spread, scallion, vinegar (start with ½), 2 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions) and S&P.

Cook the string beans
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the string beans and sauté, scraping up any browned bits, 2 to 3 min., until beginning to soften. Add the garlic and sauté, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions), the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 1 to 2 min., until crisp-tender.
