Savory Steak & Potatoes
There are so many reasons to love this recipe:
A shortcut with the potatoes ensures this is a fast meal — perfect for those rushed weeknights!
The addition of potatoes to an oven steak makes for a great meal.
Tastes like the chef fussed for hours. Perfect steak every time.
It’s easy to find ideal side dishes like an Easy Arugula Salad, some Crock Pot Broccoli Cheese Soup, or some sweet oven-baked Delicata Squash.
STEAK Go for 1″ thick boneless cuts of steak with lots of marbling. Strip loin, New York Strip or rib eyes are all great choices and have a hearty beef flavor plus it’s tender and juicy.
POTATOES Baby potatoes are small with thin skins so there is no need to peel them. If using another type, simply cut into 1 ½” chunks. Russets or baking potatoes will need to be peeled in this recipe.
SEASONING Steak spice is all that is needed for the meat, and the potatoes have the ideal combination of fresh garlic and rosemary with salt & pepper. Butter and olive oil bring all the flavors together.
How to Make Steak & Potatoes
Simple is the name of the game—especially when it comes to cooking this classic suppertime favorite:
Microwave (or boil) the potatoes (as per the recipe below) and then season.
While potatoes are boiling, season & pan-fry the steak in butter. Set aside to rest.
While steak is resting, add potatoes to the pan crisp them without stirring for a few mintues.
Serve steak & potatoes with juices on a single platter. Top with additional butter or steak butter if desired.
Tips for Perfect Steaks
This recipe is for 1″ steaks. Thinner steaks will need less time while thicker steaks will need more time.
Steak should rest at room temperature at least 30 minutes before cooking.
Ovens and the type of pan can vary the cook time. Check the steaks early to ensure they do not overcook. (Use a thermometer for best results).
Take the steak off of the heat a few degrees before you want it to be done as it will continue to rise in temperature as it rests.
Let the steaks rest after cooking (while you crisp the potatoes).
This works best in a large cast-iron pan.
What to Serve With Steak & Potatoes
When dinner is this easy, it gives the chef time to make a fancy salad! Try this wonderful Beet & Arugula Salad or go for something that can be made ahead like an Overnight Salad (Seven Layer Salad). Throw some Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts in the oven, or go for a pot of simple Steamed Carrots.
