Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 12 mins

Total Time: 27 mins

Steak Marinade
  • 1½ pounds sirloin steak cut into 1 inch cubes
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1½ pounds baby potatoes cut in half if too big
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  1. In a medium size bowl, combine all the steak marinade ingredients together. Set aside while potatoes cook.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the tablespoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of the butter.
  3. Add the potatoes to the skillet and cook for about 8 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
  4. In the same skillet, add the rest of the butter, the garlic and Italian seasoning.
  5. Cook for 30 seconds until aromatic.
  6. Add the steak and spread it in a single layer, reserving leftover marinade.
  7. Cook for 1 minute without touching it, then toss it and sear for another minute.
  8. Pour the reserved marinade over the steak and cook for another minute.
  9. Add the potatoes back to the skillet and cook until warmed through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Remove from heat and serve immediately garnished with fresh parsley or Parmesan cheese.
  • Use both the butter and oil. Make sure to use the olive oil with the butter. Doing so prevents the milk solids in butter from burning and becoming bitter.
  • Cook the potatoes separately. You need to cook the potatoes first not only because they take longer to cook, but also because the meat needs that time to marinate.
  • Don’t overcook the meat. If you like your meat well done, then go for it and cook away! But if you don’t then make sure you only cook the sirloin pieces for just a few minutes on each side.
  • Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months when stored in an airtight container or freezer bag.
  • To reheat, just put them in the microwave for about 3 minutes on medium heat. You can also reheat them in a skillet if you prefer. If frozen, thaw the leftovers out in the fridge overnight and then reheat them in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350°F (176°C).
