RRib-eye is a cut of beef prized for its flavor and tenderness. So you know that this is a meal worth putting your fancy pants on for. But just in case you want to break out the cuff links or pearls as well, we’re drizzling the meat with some seriously sophisticated truffle sauce. There are also some cozy comforts included, like toasty potato wedges and tender-crisp green beans. So if you wanna eat like a king or queen in your pajamas, there’s room for that too.

1 • Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Halve, peel, and mince shallot. Zest and quarter lemon. Trim and discard woody bottom ends from asparagus. Place peppercorns in a zip-close bag; crush with a heavy-bottomed pan or rolling pin until coarsely ground.
2 • Place potatoes in a medium pot with enough salted water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes. Reserve ½ cup potato cooking liquid, then drain and return potatoes to pot. • Mash with sour cream and truffle butter, adding splashes of reserved potato cooking liquid as needed, until smooth. Season generously with salt and pepper.
• While potatoes cook, pat duck* dry with paper towels; season all over with salt. Place skin sides down in a large pan. Cook over medium heat until skin is browned and crispy, 15-20 minutes, carefully pouring out fat as it renders. • Flip and cook to desired doneness, 3-5 minutes more. Turn off heat; transfer to a cutting board to rest. Wipe out pan. • TIP: Lower heat if duck begins to brown too quickly.
4 • Once duck is flipped, toss asparagus on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast on middle rack until lightly browned and tender, 10-12 minutes.
• Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in pan used for duck over medium-high heat. Add shallot and ¼ tsp crushed peppercorns; cook until browned and softened, 1-2 minutes. • Stir in demi-glace and ¼ cup water. Bring to a simmer and cook until slightly reduced, 2-3 minutes. Stir in 1 TBSP plain butter. Turn off heat. • 4 SERVINGS: Use ½ tsp crushed peppercorns, 1/3 cup water, and 2 TBSP plain butter. • TIP: Taste and add more crushed peppercorns if desired.
6 • Thinly slice duck crosswise; divide between plates and top with pan sauce. Serve potatoes and asparagus to the side. Top asparagus with lemon zest to taste and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
