I disagree with the translation. Where Sara says "1/2 butter" it clearly (nearly?) reads "1/2 head lettuce" As an example of this dish, see http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5935/quick-braised-lettuce-and-peas
by Gordon Ramsey

Also, Sara seems to have left out something after (fresh only) canned tal???

Otherwise a nice rendering of a very sloppy but delicious sounding meal comprised of an herb-seared steak with asparagus and a braised lettuce, pea, and carrot side dish.
