Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces. On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, stirring halfway through, 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Mise en place
While the potatoes roast, pick the tarragon leaves off the stems, discarding the stems; finely chop the leaves. Peel, halve and mince the shallot. Trim and discard the stem ends of the string beans. In a small bowl, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) in the microwave, in 15 second increments, until melted.

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

Make the quick béarnaise sauce
While the steaks cook, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, melted butter, up to ⅓ of the shallot (to taste) and as much white wine vinegar and tarragon as you’d like. Season with S&P to taste. Stir well.

Blister the string beans
In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the remaining shallot and sauté, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until beginning to soften. Add the string beans and 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions). Sauté, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until the water has evaporated. Add the garlic and sauté, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the string beans are crisp-tender.

Plate your dish
