Montreal Spice Blend
Beef Broth Concentrate

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F and wash and dry all produce. Peel garlic. Toss garlic with 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a small sheet of foil, then wrap tightly closed. Add wrapped garlic to a baking sheet. Roast in middle of oven, until softened, 16-18 min. Meanwhile, peel, then cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Strip 1 tbsp thyme (dbl for 4 ppl). Roughly chop parsley. Cut stems off green beans.
Combine potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approx. 1-inch) in a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until fork-tender, 10-12 min. Meanwhile, pat steak dry with paper towels. Sprinkle over half the Montreal Spice Blend, then wrap 2 bacon strips around each steak.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then bacon-wrapped steaks. Cook, until golden, 2-3 min per side.** Remove pan from heat and reserve excess fat (the fat is used in Step 4). Add bacon-wrapped steaks to the sheet with garlic. Roast in middle of oven, until cooked to desired doneness, 5-10 min.***
While steak cooks, heat the same pan (with excess fat) over medium heat. When hot, add flour. Cook, stirring together, until combined, 1 min. Add 1 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate. Cook, stirring together, until combined, 1 min. Add thyme and remaining Montreal Spice Blend. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, 2-5 min. When garlic is done, remove foil and transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), until garlic is smooth.
When potatoes are done, add beans (don't stir) to same pot. Cook, until tender, 2-5 min. Using tongs, add beans to garlic oil. Season with salt and pepper, then toss together. Drain potatoes and return to same pot, off heat. Using a masher, mash in sour cream, parsley, 2 tbsp butter and 1/4 cup milk (dbl both for 4 ppl), until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir in any steak juices from the baking sheet into the gravy. Divide the mash, bacon-wrapped steaks and garlic beans between plates. Sprinkle over crispy shallots and spoon over gravy.
