A note about serious food allergies

Far from your workaday meat-and-potatoes dinner, this meal offers a delightful blend of flavors and textures to put a fresh take on, well, meat and potatoes. Tender flat iron steak is among the most flavorful cuts around, and this garlic-tomato sauce is a fresh and robust accompaniment. Competing for top-billing on this plate are these crispy potato fritters. Mashed red bliss potatoes get a distinctly nutty infusion from Parmesan cheese, then pan-fried to golden-brown perfection. When simple, clean flavors come together this easily, you win.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Large Non-Stick Pan
  • 1 Medium Non-Stick Pan

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Potatoes
    1

    Prepare the Potatoes

    Cut potatoes into ¾" dice. Bring a medium pot with potatoes and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat. Cook until tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain in colander, and return potatoes to pot off-burner. Coarsely mash with a potato masher or fork and stir in Parmesan cheese. Set aside until cool enough to handle, 5-10 minutes. While potatoes cool, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve grape tomatoes lengthwise. Cut garlic into 1/8" slices. Stem and coarsely chop oregano. Rinse steaks, pat dry, and season both sides with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.

  • Step 3 - Make the Potato Cakes
    3

    Make the Potato Cakes

    Divide potato mixture into eight pieces and roll each piece into a ball slightly bigger than a ping pong ball. Flatten each ball to ½" thick, making eight round patties. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add half the butter (reserve remaining for sauce) and ½ tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Place potato cakes into pan and cook undisturbed until golden brown, 2-4 minutes per side. Remove pan from burner and set aside.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Steaks
    4

    Cook the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan. Cook until browned, 3-4 minutes. Flip steaks, reduce heat to medium, and cook until browned and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Remove to a plate and rest 2-3 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 5 - Make the Sauce
    5

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-high heat. Add ½ tsp. olive oil and garlic to hot pan and cook until aromatic, 30 seconds. Add white wine, bring to a boil, and cook until reduced by half, 1-2 minutes. Add grape tomatoes, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper, and cook until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Gently swirl in remaining butter. Remove from burner and add oregano.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish
