Steak with Crispy Spiced Potatoes
Steak and potatoes is great when it's done right. So why is it so easy to screw up?
Why This Recipe Works
We parcooked the potatoes for our Steak with Crispy Spiced Potatoes in the microwave before we finished them in the skillet. This kept them from drying out and also cut down on the cooking time.
We found that four strip steaks didn’t easily fit in a large skillet, so we used two extra-thick steaks and cut them into four portions total. We developed our recipe for Steak with Crispy Spiced Potatoes using sweet paprika (often just labeled “paprika"). When using hot paprika, we found it best to omit the cayenne.
