Start the vegetables
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel and halve the parsnips lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss the parsnips with the honey, ½ the apple cider vinegar and a drizzle of oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Arrange on one side of the sheet pan, in a single, even layer, and roast in the oven, 8 to 10 minutes, until partially cooked. Remove from the oven and flip the parsnips.

Cook the steaks
While the parsnips roast, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the steaks dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the steaks* to the pan and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked as desired (to ensure a consistent temperature throughout, turn over at least twice during cooking). Transfer the steaks to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes before slicing them against the grain.

Finish the vegetables
While the steaks cook, trim off and discard the root ends of the Brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise (or quarter if large). In a medium bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts with a drizzle of oil; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. To the pan of partially cooked parsnips, add the Brussels sprouts, arranging them in a single, even layer on the empty side of the pan. Return to the oven and roast, stirring halfway through, 10 to 12 minutes, until the vegetables are golden brown and tender when pierced with a fork.

Make the pan sauce
While the vegetables continue to roast, in the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the thyme sprigs, roasted garlic and onions; cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions), the remaining apple cider vinegar and 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions); continue to cook, stirring often, 1 to 2 minutes, until slightly reduced; season with S&P to taste.
