I love this easy one-pan steak recipe. Incredibly easy to make and ready in under thirty minutes. A delicious dinner option with savory, tender, and juicy steak and crisp-golden potatoes tossed in a simple yet impressive garlic, herbs, and butter sauce! This is the best pan-seared steak and potatoes you’ll ever make!


1 ½ lbs sirloin steak, cut into 1” cubes

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp olive oil

1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, diced into ½” cubes

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp dried rosemary

4 tbsp butter, divided

Freshly chopped parsley for garnish optional

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

How to make Garlic Butter Steak and Potatoes Skillet

Step 1: Into a hot cast-iron skillet, heat the olive oil and 2 tbsp butter over medium-high heat.

Step 2: Once the butter has melted, add the potatoes, garlic, rosemary, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 4 minutes without stirring. Stir after 4 minutes and continue to cook for another 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. In a bowl, transfer the potatoes and set aside.

Step 3: Place the skillet back on the stove and adjust the heat to high. Add 2 tbsp butter. Once melted, add the steak bits in one layer and cook for about a minute. Flip and steak, stir, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until done to your desired doneness.

Step 4: Take the skillet off the heat and return the potatoes to the skillet. Toss well. If desired, season with more salt and pepper.

Step 5: Before serving, garnish with some fresh chopped parsley (optional). Enjoy!


For this recipe, you are welcome to use other kinds of meats such as beef tenderloin, New york strip steak, or stir fry meat.

If desired, you can use red-skinned and fingerling potatoes in place of Yukon gold. I do not recommend using Russet potatoes.
