Photo: Yunhee Kim Hands On Time: 25 mins Total Time: 30 mins Yield: 4 serves Jump to Nutrition Facts Ingredients 1 small head cauliflower (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into small florets 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces kosher salt and black pepper 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 ½ pounds skirt steak, cut into 4 pieces 10 ounces cremini mushrooms, trimmed and quartered ½ cup red or white wine 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves Directions Fill a large pot with 1-inch water and fit with a steamer basket. Bring to a simmer. Place the cauliflower in the steamer basket, cover, and steam until very tender, 18 to 22 minutes. Transfer to a food processor, add the butter, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and puree until smooth. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the steak with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing; reserve the skillet. Add the mushrooms to the drippings in the skillet and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced and syrupy, 2 to 3 minutes more; season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve the steak with the cauliflower puree. Top with the mushroom sauce and sprinkle with the parsley.
