  • 1 lb baby yukon gold potatoes, quartered
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt, more or less, to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, more or less, to taste

Steak + Marinade:

  • 2 lbs top loin strip steak, trimmed of fat and cut into small cubes
  • 3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder

To Pan:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic


  • Combine the cubed steak and marinade ingredients, tossing the steak to throughly coat, into an airtight container to sit while you prep the potatoes. Set aside.
  • Slice each baby potato into quarters (or more depending on size) and place them into a large mixing bowl with the olive oil and seasonings. Toss to thoroughly coat.
  • Add butter to a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add in the minced garlic and seasonings, followed by the coated potatoes, cut-side down.
  • Cook 3-5 minutes per side, or until fork-tender, turning when they just start to crisp/brown on one side. Using tongs, remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Be sure to leave the remaining oil/butter and seasonings for the steak.
  • Increase the temperature to medium-high heat and add the steak to the skillet - with the marinade. Allow the steak to sear for 30-60 seconds before stirring to continue cooking until golden brown. Approximately 1 minute per side or until the they reach desired doneness.
  • Right before the steak is done, add the potatoes back to the skillet to warm. Garnish with herbs, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
