Make the potatoes very first. Cube a handful of, toss them in oil, anoint them with salt and pepper, possibly some rosemary, and get them into a very hot oven on a sheet pan. Then cook the steak. Salt the meat aggressively and sear equally sides really hard in a screaming-hot solid iron pan, till it is just beginning its ascent into the realm of medium-scarce. Then transform off the warmth, tilt the pan and include to it a couple of squares of cold butter and a pair of garlic cloves baste the steak with the browning butter for a minute or so, prior to tonging it on to a slicing board to rest. Make the salad, the greens tossed in a vinaigrette of olive oil, lemon juice, a sprint of mayonnaise or mustard, and seasoning as you like — I like herbes de Provence.
The potatoes are finished now, crisp and golden, so slide them on to a platter. Slice the steak versus the grain and on the bias, and arrange the slices on major of the potatoes, drizzling with any juices remaining on the board. Serve with the salad and send a picture of the whole shebang to me: email@example.com.

For the Tuesday repast, how about this Spanish-style shrimp with garlic, best with crusty bread to mop up the sauce? (And I may possibly grill or roast some leeks or scallions to go with.)
Eggs for dinner on Wednesday? You do not need a recipe there, either. I came throughout some marvelously runny stracciatella di bufala at the industry the other working day and slashed it with olive oil, then folded a bunch of it into an omelet that I served with little one arugula tossed in red-wine vinaigrette. You could do the exact with one more runny cheese — or omit it completely. These are not specific guidance I’m marketing, but a very simple idea that you can make your personal, similar as the steak and potatoes.
