Deglazing is a cooking technique for removing and dissolving browned food residue from a pan to flavour sauces. In this recipe, you will deglaze your pan with fresh orange juice and a little butter, for a glossy sauce to finish your steak. Add some garlic aioli for your fries and some crispy, singed broccoli and you've got yourself a winning steak dinner!
  • 350 Grams of Porterhouse Steak (Thick-Cut)
  • 3 Royal Blue Potatoes
  • 1 Broccoli (small)
  • 1 Small Bunch of Thyme
  • 50 Grams of Garlic Aioli
  • 1 Orange
  • 2 Teaspoons of Butter (pantry)
  • 0.5 Bunch of Baby Carrots

Prepare Veg:

Preheat oven to 190°C. Wash the fresh produce. Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1 cm thick sticks. Cut the broccoli into florets (Note: not too small as they may overcook). Trim baby carrots as desired (we left ours whole, with a little green still on). Pick thyme leaves, discarding stems. Zest orange and cut in half.

Roast Veg:

Add a drizzle of olive oil to potatoes, broccoli and carrot. Add thyme and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Spread in a single layer across a lined baking tray (using 2 if required). Roast 14 minutes and check the broccoli and carrot (if getting too brown, remove from oven and keep warm). Continue to roast another 10-15 minutes, or until fries browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. (Tip - don't crowd the trays with the veg, it will cook better with a little room around them. If you like, keep the potato separate from the other veg).

Cook Steak:

Season steak on both sides with salt. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add steak and cook 2-3 minutes before flipping. Flip 3 times for a total cooking time of 10-12 minutes (or to your preferred doneness). Remove from pan and allow to rest.

Deglaze Pan:

Heat the pan used for steak on medium, then add 3-4 tablespoons of water and the juice from half the orange, and zest (to taste). Using a wooden spoon to scrape up any bits stuck to the pan. Simmer the sauce 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly reduced in volume. Stir in butter and remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper as desired.

You Plate It:

Slice steak, cutting as you wish with potato fries, carrot and broccoli. Tope steak with orange glaze and serve garlic aioli on the side. Enjoy!
