Seared Strip Steak with Almond-Rosemary Salsa Verde
The salsa verde can be made up to a day ahead and refrigerated, but allow it to come to room temperature before serving. It's also good served with roasted poultry or fish, and is good as a sandwich spread. If your steaks have an extra-generous layer of fat, trim to be no thicker than ¼ inch. We liked the steaks medium-rare; keep in mind that they should be removed from the pan one stage shy of the desired doneness, as their temperature continues to rise as they rest.
cup lightly packed flat-leaf parsley leaves
cup sliced almonds, toasted and cooled
01In a food processor, combine the parsley, half of the almonds, the capers, anchovies, rosemary, lemon zest, garlic and ½ teaspoon pepper. Process until finely chopped, about 1 minute. With the machine running, slowly add the olive oil and process, scraping the bowl as needed, until the mixture is smooth. Add the remaining almonds and pulse until coarsely chopped, about 10 pulses. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the lemon juice. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
