Steak with Glazed Carrots & Turnips

Steak with Glazed Carrots & Turnips

This cast-iron steak recipe has what it takes to transform beef and vegetables from basic to brilliant—a pop of rosemary on the steak, an intense sear in a hot skillet and a sweet-and-sour glaze on the vegetables. Serve with sautéed spinach and a glass of red wine.

  • 1pound small carrots (about 5 inches long), halved lengthwise
  • 1pound turnips (about 3 medium), peeled and cut into thick matchsticks

  • 1pound sirloin or top round steak, about 1 inch thick, trimmed
  • 1teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 2tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1tablespoon red-wine vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil and butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots and turnips, sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown and soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Meanwhile, cut steak in half crosswise and sprinkle with rosemary and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat until very hot. Add the steak and cook until starting to brown on each side, about 2 minutes total. Transfer to another plate.
  4. Return the vegetables to the pan and stir in brown sugar. Place the steak on the vegetables. Carefully transfer the pan to the oven.
  5. Roast until the vegetables are tender and the steak is cooked to your desired doneness, 8 to 10 minutes for medium. Remove the steak to a clean cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Drizzle vinegar over the vegetables. Serve the steak with the vegetables.
