This is a super easy weeknight dinner that's sure to please. Rich and tender steak is paired with a zesty sauce made with jarred roasted red peppers (hello, supermarket shortcut!), garlic, vinegar, smoked paprika, and a drizzle of olive oil. Green beans pick up a nice char in the skillet while the steak rests to minimize time in the kitchen. Meanwhile, bite-sized potatoes are in the oven getting nice and golden. Genius! Pro tip: Add this sauce to your repertoire, as it goes nicely with chicken or fish, too.


  • 1 pound baby gold potatoes, halved

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 ¾ teaspoons kosher salt, divided

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • 1 12-oz. jar roasted red bell peppers, drained

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1.50 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • .50 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1.50 pounds hanger steak (1/2-in. thick)

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed

  • flaky sea salt, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and black pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, process bell peppers, garlic, vinegar, paprika, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt in a blender until smooth, about 1 minute.

  3. Season steak with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high. Add steak; cook, undisturbed, until browned, about 3 minutes. Flip; cook, turning occasionally, until well-browned and a thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 130°F for medium-rare, 7 to 11 minutes, or until desired doneness. Remove from skillet and let rest for 10 minutes.

  4. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet over medium-high. Add beans and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and black pepper. Cook, stirring, until beans are bright green, charred, and crisp-tender, about 8 minutes.

  5. Slice steak against the grain into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Serve with bell pepper sauce, beans, and potatoes. Sprinkle steak with flaky sea salt.
