When you’re hankering for a classic steak and potatoes dinner, this one-skillet dish fits the bill perfectly. What makes it extra special is the garlicky lemon-parsley butter that’s basted over the steak as it’s seared. You end up with all the flavors of a steakhouse, except from the comfort of your own home.

For this recipe you brown the potatoes, cook the steaks, and make the sauce, in the same skillet, leaving you with minimal cleanup. When browning the potatoes, be patient with them — if they stick to the pan when you try to flip them, leave them alone to cook longer. They’ll easily release from the pan once browned, so don’t try to pry them up or you’ll be left with broken wedges of potatoes.


Although I’m partial to ribeye steaks, you can really use any kind of steak you’d like. Since the steaks are sliced up at the end and served with a rich sauce, you can stretch the meat out to feed a few people if you make a salad or vegetable on the side.
