  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lemon, divided
  • 12 ounces fingerling potatoes
  • 8 ounces dandelion greens
  • 10 ounces skirt steak
  • 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 packet honey


1. Prepare Ingredients

Preheat oven to 425°F. Mince garlic. Zest lemon, then halve. Rinse potatoes and halve lengthwise. Rinse dandelion greens. Rinse steak and pat dry with paper towel.

2. Roast Potatoes

On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange in a single layer cut-side down and roast until golden brown and tender, about 20 minutes.

3. Make Aioli

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine garlic, juice of 1⁄2 lemon, a pinch lemon zest, mayonnaise, and smoked paprika. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Set aside. Discard remaining lemon zest.

4. Make Salad

In a large bowl, combine juice of remaining 1⁄2 lemon, honey, and 11⁄2 tablespoons olive oil. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Add dandelion greens and toss to coat.

5. Cook Steak

Heat 1⁄2 tablespoon olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. When oil is just smoking, add steak and cook until browned outside and medium rare, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside to rest for 5-10 minutes.

6. Plate Steak

Cut steak against the grain into 1⁄4-inch slices. Divide dandelion greens and potatoes evenly between 2 plates. Serve alongside steak with aioli for dipping.
