1Roast Potatoes

On a rimmed baking sheet, toss potatoes with 2 teaspoons of olive olive oil. Season generously with salt & pepper. Roast on lower oven rack until tender & browned in spots, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with parmesan, return to the oven. Roast until cheese is melted, 2–3 minutes (watch closely as ovens vary).

3Cook Steaks

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium heavy skillet (preferably cast-iron) over medium-heat. Add steaks, cook until deeply browned & medium-rare, 3–4 minutes per side (or longer for desired doneness). Transfer steaks to a cutting board, let rest for 5 minutes.

4Make Compound Butter

Add chopped thyme & lemon zest to bowl with garlic butter. Use a fork to mash to combine. Season with salt & pepper.
