For the Potatoes


Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius).


Place potatoes cut side down on a baking sheet. Combine duck fat, rosemary, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread over potatoes.


Place potatoes on center rack of oven and roast for 20–25 minutes, until tender. Flip and broil for two to three minutes to get a crispy browned top. Remove from oven and lower oven heat to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius).

For the Kale Chips


Line one (or more, depending on size) baking sheet with Gefen Parchment Paper.


Toss kale with duck fat and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a large bowl until the kale leaves are coated. Lay the leaves in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 20–25 minutes, until crisp.

For the Steak


Meanwhile, prepare the steak. For a sous vide, place steak, two tablespoons duck fat, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper in a ziplock bag.


Cook in the sous vide for one and a half hours on 133 degrees Fahrenheit (56 degrees Celsius) for a medium steak. (For medium well, cook for the same amount of time on 140 degrees Fahrenheit/60 degrees Celsius.)


Remove the steak from the bag and pat dry with paper towels.


Place a few teaspoons of duck fat in a frying pan heated over medium-high heat. Heat the pan and sear the steak on both sides. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.


While the steak is cooling, cook the mushrooms in the same frying pan you used for the steak. Season with salt and pepper and cook until browned and soft.
