1 pound red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 cloves garlic (1 grated, 3 minced)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon juice
1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut into 4 pieces
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 ears of corn, kernels cut off (about 4 1/2 cups)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
- Put the potatoes in a large nonstick skillet; cover with water and season with salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, blot dry with paper towels and wipe out the skillet.
- Meanwhile, combine the butter, grated garlic, parsley, oregano, lemon zest and a big pinch of salt in a food processor. Pulse until smooth; set aside.
- Season the steak with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Add the steak and cook until well browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer to a cutting board to rest.
- While the steak cooks, heat the reserved nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and the potatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are browned around the edges, about 5 minutes. Add the corn, minced garlic and a pinch of salt; cook, undisturbed, until the corn is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the scallions and cook, tossing, until combined. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the lemon juice.
- Divide the vegetables among plates. Slice the steak and add to the plates; top with the garlic butter.
