4 servings

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large turnip, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 2 Yukon gold potatoes (about 12 ounces), cut into small cubes
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 12 -ounce flank steak
  • Cooked white or brown rice, for serving (optional)
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the turnip, potatoes, all but 2 tablespoons of the chopped red onion and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are slightly softened, about 3 minutes; remove to a plate.

  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the pot. Sprinkle in the flour and curry powder; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the broth until smooth. Return the potato mixture to the pot; add the peas and carrots and the sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Cover and simmer 10 minutes; uncover and simmer 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Season the steak with salt and pepper. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak; cook 4 minutes per side. Let rest 5 minutes, then slice against the grain. Serve with the curry and rice. Top with the reserved red onion.
