cumin steak & roasted carrots with cilantro, raisins, and cashews

No need to peel your carrots, just give them a good scrub to remove any grit and roast them whole, that way you’ll get all the nutritious benefits (fiber!)...

Make sure your pan is hot enough for a beautiful sear and resist the urge to touch the steaks those first few minutes. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

What you'll need: 1 lb carrots ½ oz cilantro ¼ cup roasted salted cashews 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar ¼ cup golden raisins 1 tsp sumac 7 oz 2% Greek yogurt 2 7-oz sirloin filets 1 tsp ground cumin coarse salt olive oil freshly ground black pepper

Equipment: small pot rimmed baking sheet medium skillet

Recipe steps: 1. Prep ingredients Preheat oven to 425ºF. Wash carrots well to remove any grit (no need to peel) and halve lengthwise if thick. Remove thicker stems from cilantro and coarsely chop cashews.

  1. Roast carrots Toss carrots with 1 tablespoon oil on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast, tossing once, until carrots are tender, about 20 minutes.

  2. Soak raisins Place vinegar, raisins, and sumac in a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat and let sit while carrots roast.

  3. Finish carrots & prepare yogurt Remove carrots from oven and add raisin mixture and cashews to the baking sheet. To a small bowl, add yogurt and 1 tablespoon water, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine.

  4. Cook steaks Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Rub steaks all over with cumin and season with salt and pepper. Cook until deeply brown, 3–4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a board to rest for a few minutes.

  5. Finish Slice steak and serve alongside carrots, raisins, and cashews. Top with cilantro sprigs and serve with yogurt on the side.
