  1. I cooked this dish today and everyone was right about the potatoes, but I used the red potatoes instead, also besides the salt and pepper and the herbs it calls for, I added a little of my own seasoning to boost the flavor along with some bell peppers and onions. We love using herbs in our home and it came out good. I did do the garlic bread with salad on the side.

    This recipe is meant to fail the first time! Don’t give up!! Highly recommend steaming potato no longer than 5-7 minutes ( my steamer says 9mins but the potatoes kept falling apart) before putting on the pan to cook for 6 minutes. Also I didn’t have a cast iron pan, I used just a regular pan but the heat doesn’t need to be so high. I used medium to medium low.

    Good luck 👍

    This looked an amazing dish, we had it tonight for supper, I agree with another comment you need to par boil or steam the potatoes first, I added sliced Brussel sprouts to it, it was delicious. Not being a great steak person (my husband is) I had more of the potatoes, sliced sprouts and garlic. I served it with toasted garlic butter sourdough. Definitely a firm favourite

    I make this all the time and love it. However, I do steam my potatoes first because there is no way they would be soft in 3 mins. But otherwise it’s really tasty!

    My husband & I tried this recipe today. It sounded wonderful, but we did not like it at all. All those herbs, but no flavor. And, we never got potatoes cooked in just 6 minutes (took us more like 20 minutes).

    Love this recipe! It has become a staple in my house. I have made it at least twice a month for about a year. I use cheap chuck steak to not break the bank and it tastes great! I prefer my potatoes soft so I cook them about 15-20 min on low to medium. I prep the potatoes first and then let them start cooking while I dice up the steak and by the time the steak is cooked the potatoes are usually done. Fast, easy, and delicious!

    I agree with some of the other comments, the potatoes do not cook in 6 minutes and the garlic burns. Would use a different recipe next time.

    This is a wonderful base recipe! Thank you for sharing! I’ve used it a dozen or so times over the last year, especially when camping (using griddle) and it’s amazing every time! We’ve deviated from salmon to gnocchi, added veggies like onions and zucchini and and peppers (red, yellow, orange and green). Agree that potatoes need a tad longer but really? Just eat one and you’ll know when it’s ready!
    Thanks again for sharing!

    This is a keeper. It was wonderful. I did the baking soda for a tenderizer and it worked. The potatoes are just bursting with flavor. I did not change a thing. Thank you.

    1. Delicious but hilarious that the recipe says potatoes are going to he cooked in 6 minutes. Maybe if they’re 5mm thick!

    Finally….a meal everyone ate! I think I’m the only one who was critical but of course, aren’t we always our own worst critics? I had to use my cast iron grill pan but it worked. (And now I have a new method for cooking my breakfast potatoes!) The meal could have used more depth of flavor and that is my biggest critique. Not sure what to add – garlic powder? I don’t want to add onions. Perhaps a tad more salt? Overall, it was awesome! All 3 of children ate most of it and 1 returned for 2nd helpings. I was pleased as punch.

    Tasty & full of flavour, great mid week recipe. The whole family enjoyed it and that’s no mean feat. I used new potato’s which needed to be par boiled, but worked so well. Definitely make this again 😋👌
