This genius of this one-skillet wonder is the easy, herb-infused oil that works overtime as marinade, dressing and sauce. After quickly searing the steak, we flip the script with a reverse marinade, allowing the cooked meat to luxuriate in all that herby goodness while it rests. The result is a gorgeously green coating and tons of fresh flavor in every bite.



  1. Pat the London broil dry with paper towels and set on a plate. Rub both sides of the meat with the vegetable oil, then season both sides generously with salt and black pepper, coating the surface evenly. Set aside to rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. (The seasoned meat can also be transferred to a large resealable plastic bag and stored in the refrigerator overnight. Let rest at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking.)
  2. While the meat rests, add the parsley, rosemary, thyme, garlic, scallions, lemon zest and juice, fennel seeds, red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper to a food processor. Pulse, stopping to scrape the sides as needed, until the herbs are finely chopped, about 10 times. Transfer the herb mixture to a small bowl and whisk in the olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Set a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over high heat until just starting to smoke, about 3 minutes. Add the steak and cook until seared on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip the steak and continue cooking until an instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into the center of the steak registers between 120 and 125 degrees F, about 3 minutes more. Transfer the steak to a clean plate and spoon 1/2 cup of the herb oil over top. Set aside to marinate for 5 minutes.
  4. While the steak marinates, heat the broccoli rabe to the same cast-iron skillet over high heat. Cook, using tongs to toss the broccoli rabe, until it’s vibrantly green and starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the kale and continue cooking and tossing until the kale is wilted and the broccoli rabe is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes more. Add 1/4 cup of the herb oil and toss to combine. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  5. Thinly slice the rested steak against the grain. Transfer the steak to the skillet on top of the greens and spoon the remaining 1/4 cup of herb oil over the steak. Serve with lemon wedges.
