Cooking spray, for pan
3 eggs
1 c. granulated sugar
1 (15-oz.) can pumpkin purée
2/3 c. heavy cream
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c. dark brown sugar
Pinch kosher salt
3/4 c. cold butter, in 1/2" cubes
1 c. chopped pecans
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for garnish

Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a skillet with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar. When smooth and fully combined, add pumpkin, cream, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and 1/2 tsp kosher salt. Whisk until smooth and blended. Pour into prepared pan.
In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the flour, brown sugar, and salt to combine and break up any clumps of brown sugar. Scatter the cubed butter over the dry ingredients and pulse again until crumbs form. Stir in the pecans.
In the palm of your hand, press handfuls of the topping into rough balls. Break off teaspoon-sized pieces and place over the pumpkin.
Bake until the filling is set and the top is golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 lb sirloin steak cut into bite size pieces, or strip loin, tenderloin, strip steak or rib eye
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
1/2 tsp pepper or to taste
2 tbsp butter unsalted
4 cloves garlic minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Add the olive oil to a large skillet and heat it over high heat. Make sure the olive oil is hot, then add the steak pieces to it. Season them generously with salt and pepper. Cook for at least 2 minutes before stirring the steak pieces. You want to make sure you get a good sear on them. Continue cooking for another 2 minutes until they're golden brown. If your skillet isn't big enough, you may need to do this batches. Transfer the steak bites to a plate and in the same skillet add the butter. Turn the heat down to a medium and after the butter has melted, add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 30 seconds while stirring, just until the garlic becomes aromatic and starts to brown. Pour the garlic butter over the steak bites and toss well. Enjoy!
