In this recipe, the steak is expertly seasoned and seared to perfection, while the potatoes get a golden, crisp finish. The star of the show, however, is the homemade garlic butter sauce, which infuses the entire dish with an irresistible aroma and rich flavor.


  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1-1/2 lb. flank steak, sliced against the grain
  • 1-1/2 lb. baby yellow potatoes, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan (optional)

📝 Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine steak strips with soy sauce, olive oil, hot sauce, and cracked black pepper. Toss to coat and allow to marinate while you cook the potatoes.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter. Once butter is melted, add potatoes. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden and tender. Transfer potatoes to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and minced garlic to the same skillet over medium-high heat. Lay steak strips in one layer. Cook for 2 minutes, flipping once, until browned.
  4. Return potatoes to the skillet with the steak. Cook until heated through, 1-2 minutes more. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
  5. Remove from heat and sprinkle with fresh chopped thyme. Optionally, sprinkle with grated Parmesan before serving.
