Steak and potatoes is a crowd favorite, and this quick and easy variation will not disappoint. It’s a great way to stretch steak to included unexpected guests at the dinner table.

Tip: While you can cook the potatoes fresh for this dish, it’s best made with leftover baked potatoes that have had time to chill and firm in the fridge. Adding cold potatoes to the dish will give you a better crisp.
