  • 2 large Yukon gold or baking potatoes (about 12 oz each)
  • 2 tbsp. plus 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. chopped rosemary
  • ½ tsp. coarse salt
  • 4 small, lean steaks (4 to 5 oz each) such as eye round or filet mignon
  • pepper


  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Cut potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges. Spread on a nonstick baking sheet; toss with 2 Tbsp oil, the rosemary, and ¼ tsp salt. Bake until golden brown on bottoms, 30 to 35 min. Turn fries; bake until golden brown all over, 10 to 15 min more.
  2. While fries bake, let meat come to room temperature, 20 to 30 min. Heat grill to medium-high (or heat a grill pan over medium-high). Brush steaks with remaining tsp oil, and season with remaining ¼ tsp salt, plus pepper to taste. Grill, turning once, 4 to 5 min per side for medium-rare. Let rest 5 min before serving.
