One-Skillet Steak and Spring Veg with Spicy Mustard


  • 1 pound boneless New York strip steak, patted dry

  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

  • 5 garlic cloves, 1 grated, 4 thinly sliced

  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1–2 pinches cayenne pepper

  • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced, divided

  • 1 (10-ounce) bag frozen peas

  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces


  1. Season steak all over with salt and pepper. Whisk grated garlic, mustard, vinegar, honey, cayenne, 1/3 cup oil, and 1 Tbsp. water in a medium bowl to combine; season spicy mustard with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat a dry medium skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high. Rub steak all over with 1 Tbsp. oil and cook, turning every 2 minutes or so and making sure to get color on the fat cap, until medium-rare (an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center will register 120°F), about 10 minutes. Transfer steak to a plate to rest. Pour off oil from skillet, leaving crispy bits behind.

  3. Heat remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in same skillet over low. Add sliced garlic and all but about 2 Tbsp. scallions (save those for serving) and cook, stirring often, until translucent and softened, about 3 minutes. Add peas and a splash of water and cook, stirring and mashing to break up slightly, until peas are tender, about 5 minutes. Add asparagus; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until asparagus is just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  4. Slice steak and shingle over vegetables in skillet. Drizzle some mustard sauce over steak and top with reserved scallions. Serve with remaining mustard sauce alongside.
