To make your next steak night a guaranteed success, be sure to watch over the temperature of the meat with a thermometer. This works best on steaks of 1 inch (or more) thickness, as it’s hard to get a good reading on anything thinner.
This simple cold-weather soup is an easy go-to when you crave comfort—creamy and full of body, yet not as heavy as other dairy-based soups. The golden color of the broth comes from the sautéed onion and carrot.
Let the broiler do all the work, and enjoy the reward: crisp-tender green beans with a kiss of smoky char, juicy tomatoes, and a mellow roasted garlic sauce. Look for slender haricots verts in the prepared produce section of the supermarket.
