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.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Potatoes

    Cut potatoes into 3/4" 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.

  2. 2

    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 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  3. 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 1/2" thick, making eight round patties. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add half the butter (reserve remaining for sauce) and 1/2 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 5

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-high heat. Add 1/2 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, 1/4 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.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Serve four potato cakes on plate. Place steak next to cakes, then spoon sauce around and over steak.
