Seared flank steak with Jerusalem artichoke, citrus watercress, and gremolata

Ingredients

12 oz Flank Steak, cut in half
10 oz Jerusalem artichoke, small dice
2 oz Jerusalem artichoke, thinly sliced
1 Bunch Italian flat leaf parsley, rough chop
2 Lemons, zested
2 tbsp Shallot, minced
3 Garlic cloves, minced + 1 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp Whole butter
¼ cup Olive oil
Lemon olive oil
1 Bunch Watercress
1 qt Canola oil, for frying
½ cup Heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

1

In a saucepan, heat the cream with 1 tbsp of minced garlic. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes until the garlic is soft.

2

In a sauce pot, bring the 10 oz of Jerusalem artichoke to a boil with water and cook until soft.

3

Drain, and place in a blender with the butter, the garlic infused cream, and salt to taste. Puree until smooth and set aside.

4

Season both sides of the flank steak with salt and pepper. In an oven-safe sauté pan, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil. Sear the flank steak for two minutes then flip it over and place the pan in a 425 degree oven for 7 minutes.

5

Remove the steak from the pan and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into thin strips, against the grain (about 7 to 9 slices).

6

For the gremolata, mix the remaining garlic, shallot, lemon zest, parsley, 2 tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl.

7

Snip off one bunch of watercress in another bowl and mix it with a drizzle of lemon olive oil and a pinch of salt. Toss to combine.

8

Heat 1 quart of canola oil in a deep pot to 300 degrees. Add the thinly-sliced Jerusalem artichoke and cook until crisp, for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from the oil, let drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with salt.

9

To plate, grab a bowl and place a generous spoonful of the artichoke puree (reheat in a saucepan if needed), add the watercress, and then the steak. Place the gremolata on the top of the steak and top with the chips. Enjoy!
