From Tekesha for The Eat More Food Project; adjustments made for Intervale Food Hub members


  • 1 lb asparagus spears
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 ribeye steaks
  • 1 tbsp seasoning blend, such as Montreal Steak Seasoning or homemade
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Prepare your asparagus by cutting off the last inch of each spear and shaving off any rough spots with a vegetable peeler.
  3. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  4. Toss the asparagus with the olive oil, garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and place it on one side of the baking dish.
  5. Spray a grill pan with nonstick spray and toss in 2 tbsp butter. Heat on high until the pan is almost smoking, approximately 1 minute.
  6. Season both sides of the steaks with seasoning blend.
  7. Place steaks inside the pan and do not move for 3 minutes. This will allow them to develop a nice sear.
  8. Flip the steaks over and let the other side sear for 1 minute.
  9. Move steaks to the empty side of the baking sheet with the asparagus and place in the oven.
  10. Roast for approximately 10 minutes, until asparagus is only slightly crunchy.
  11. Remove from oven and let steaks rest for at least 10 minutes.
  12. Serve.
