  1. I cut my potatoes and steak add the same ingredients and put everything in a sheet pan and bake at 375 for 45 minutes and it’s wonderful and in the summer time I throw it on the grill in foil packs and cook about 30 minutes

  2. 3 stars
    Loved the steak bites but my potatoes took about 30 minutes to actually cook and the garlic burned! The potatoes were inedible unfortunately. Next time I’ll roast the potatoes and make the steak in the cast iron skillet.

  3. 5 stars
    I made this and did a quick microwave steam on the potatoes. This meal was OH SO YUMMY and super easy to make after working all day!! Thank you so much for sharing.

  4. 5 stars
    My family loved this recipe. Even my picky eater devoured a second helping. I’m floored! I did use dry vs fresh herbs so used only 1/2 teaspoon of each.

  5. I made this tonight and it was delicious…didn’t have a cast iron pan so I used my wok🤷‍♀️ Turned out well…I’m laughing now, because I added a chopped onion….my recipe had several pictures of an onion being cut (apparently an add for a knife sharpener)…so I cut one during prep and used it rather than waste it😂

  6. I’m making this for my hubby for a lunch and I have to say the potato’s take longer than 6 min . I did not have any rosemary but it came out delicious any way 4/5 stars

  7. I have beef cubed steak Im gonna use & will just used canned potatoes so there isnt any cooking time issues…

  8. Beef tenderloin will make this recipe very tender. Go to your butcher, meat shop or meat dept at the grocery and ask for filet ends. This is the part of the tenderloin that’s too small to cut into a steak.

  9. 5 stars
    My new favorite dish! I did find the potatoes took much longer to cook and the garlic burned while they cooked. Next time I’ll add 1/2 the garlic towards the end of the potatoes cook time. And the balance with the steak. I also added mushrooms. Delish!

  10. After cooking the steak , do you put potatoes back in the skillet. It only says to put on the side while you cook the steak.

    Had this tonight. It was good but will cook the potatoes in the oven next time. Also will marinate the steak. But other than that the kiddos liked it.

    It was pretty good, but depending on how many people you are cooking for, your potatoes WILL NOT take 6 minutes… Which honestly is a crazy short amount of time anyways. It took me 30 minutes, also prep time is not any where near 5 minutes. It took me at the very least 15+ I used filet mignon that was really good with it. Have never heard of steak being referred to as “golden brown” though so that was strange. Overall, would make it again, maybe try sirloin next time and see the difference! Also, I feel like the recipe asks for a really small amount of butter, I ended up using more.

    1. I was about to say the same things… I used very small baby potatoes cut in half (like quarter sized) and it still took me about 25 minutes to cook the potatoes! Plus with cutting the potatoes, tenderizing the meat and cutting into pieces and getting the spices all ready it took me about 30 minutes to prep everything. Steak cooked pretty quick, had to use more butter like you mentioned. It was very good, and will make again but I’m retyping the recipe and printing with the tweaks I made.

    2. I nuke my potatoes in the microwave for 4 minutes. I use bakers. Let them cool and then the skin peels away easily and the potatoes are about 75 percent cooked. I just diced and they finish cooking with the steak. Easy peasy!

  13. This was yummy and fast , made it for my anniversary dinner at home ❤️
    I do think next time I will add the herbs and garlic toward the end of cooking so they don’t overcook or scorch . I might also parboil the potatoes prior to sautéing .
