Why You’ll Love this Steak & Potatoes Meal

When it comes to comfort food, few dishes rival the timeless appeal of steak and potatoes. It starts with succulent New York strip steak. Tender skillet potatoes, seasoned to perfection are then added to the dish. Served with a homemade chipotle steak sauce, it’s the ultimate winning combo of hearty & tasty!

Perfect Steak & Potatoes Ingredients 

  • New York Strip Steak – Coarse salt, black pepper, and butter (try truffle butter for an extra special touch) are my go-to seasonings for the best steak.
  • Skillet Potatoes – Yukon Gold potatoes are a great choice for pairing with fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme. They taste so freakin’ delicious seasoned with my favorite trio: garlic, salt, and black pepper. To get the tender potatoes perfectly crispy and brown in the skillet, canola is my go-to cooking oil. You can also use olive oil. 
  • Homemade Steak Sauce – This lip-smackingly good chipotle sauce is better than anything from the grocery store. It’s a straightforward mixture of ketchup, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, and chipotle purée. 

How to Make My Favorite Steak & Potatoes Recipe

If you’re in a rush, go ahead and skip to the recipe card, or come along with me as I break down the instructions into simple steps.

Steak and Potatoes Skillet Meal Prep

First off, grab your delicious steaks and give them a good rubdown with some oil, then season them generously with salt and pepper.

Next, it’s potato time. In a large bowl, toss those cubed potatoes in a bit of oil and then sprinkle on some salt and pepper to taste.

Now, whip up the Chipotle Steak Sauce by mixing together all the ingredients in a small bowl. Pop the sauce in the fridge until it’s serving time.

Grilling Time

Now, let’s get the grill going for our steak and potatoes meal. Preheat it for direct cooking over medium-high heat, aiming for around 375 degrees F. While that’s heating up, grab your trusty cast iron skillet and place it over the fire with a drizzle of canola oil. Let the large skillet heat up for about a minute until it’s nice and hot, then toss in your potatoes. Cook them for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently to ensure they cook evenly.

Cooking Steak

Once your potatoes start to soften and get those delicious crispy edges, move the skillet to the cooler side of the grill and add your steaks. Give them a good sear for roughly 4 minutes per side until they reach an internal temperature of 120 degrees F.

While the steaks are cooking, grab another skillet and melt some truffle butter (or any butter you prefer) to baste the steaks before each flip, giving them that gorgeous crust.

Once your steaks are cooked to perfection, take them off the grill. Let the steak rest for about 7-8 minutes—a crucial step for ensuring juicy, tender meat. While they’re resting, add some rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper to your potatoes, cooking them for an additional 30 seconds before pulling them off the heat.

Now, it’s time to plate up your steak and potatoes masterpiece. Serve your steak whole or sliced, alongside those delicious potatoes, and don’t forget to drizzle on that Chipotle Steak Sauce for an extra flavor boost. And there you have it—sit back, relax, and enjoy every savory bite of your grilled steak and potatoes!

What to Serve with Steak & Potatoes

Pair your savory steak and potatoes with your favorite green beans sautéed in garlic and red chili pepper flakes or a crisp salad for a well-rounded meal. A glass of red wine or a refreshing beer is the perfect beverage to complement the rich flavors of the dish.

How to Store Skillet Steak Leftovers & Reheat

If you happen to have any leftover steak and potatoes, wrap them up tightly in separate aluminum foil packets. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

To reheat the steak and potatoes dinner, simply warm the steak and potatoes in a hot pan (medium heat) until heated through. 


Can I use a different kind of steak for this recipe?

While New York strip steak is my personal favorite for this dish, you can certainly use other cuts such as ribeye steak or top sirloin steak if you prefer for this steak and potatoes recipe.

Can I make the homemade steak sauce ahead of time?

Absolutely! The steak sauce can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. 

Can I use baby potatoes for the potatoes skillet?

Certainly! Feel free to experiment with different kinds of potatoes.
