When I first encountered this recipe for Steak Bites and Potatoes, I was instantly transported back to a cozy weekend at my grandparents’ farm. Grandpa would always whip up hearty meals that brought everyone together, and his steak and potatoes were a family favorite. The aroma of sizzling steak and buttery potatoes filled the air, drawing us all to the table. This recipe captures that same warmth and comfort, perfect for a casual family dinner or a gathering with friends.

Steak Bites and Potatoes is an incredibly satisfying dish that combines tender, flavorful steak with golden, crispy potatoes. The marinade of lemon juice, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, and apple cider vinegar infuses the steak with a tangy and savory flavor, while garlic and onion powder add a delicious depth. Cooking the potatoes until they are perfectly fork-tender ensures they absorb all the rich flavors from the skillet, making each bite a delightful experience.

One of the best things about this recipe is its versatility. While beef sirloin or tenderloin is recommended, you can easily substitute with other cuts of beef or even try it with chicken for a different twist. For those who love a bit of heat, adding a pinch of red pepper flakes to the marinade can give the dish a spicy kick. If you’re a fan of herbs, sprinkling fresh rosemary or thyme over the potatoes as they cook adds a wonderful aroma and flavor.

A little grated Parmesan cheese on top before serving elevates this dish to another level, giving it a touch of creamy saltiness that pairs beautifully with the savory steak and crispy potatoes. Whether you stick to the classic version or try out some variations, Steak Bites and Potatoes is a recipe that’s sure to become a favorite in your household.

Making Steak Bites and Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sirloin or tenderloin beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pounds cubed potatoes (1-inch pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated (optional for serving)

Directions

  1. Cut the beef into small, bite-sized pieces, trimming off any excess fat. Put the pieces in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Pour over the steak, mixing well to coat evenly. Seal or cover and refrigerate for 1 to 8 hours.
  3. Boil salted water in a large pot. Add the cubed potatoes and cook for approximately 10 minutes until tender but still firm. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat a large skillet on medium-high. Cook half of the marinated steak with tongs, leaving the marinade behind, until browned and seared, stirring occasionally. Remove and set aside. Repeat with the remaining steak, avoiding overcrowding the skillet.
  5. Return all cooked steak to the skillet. Add the butter and minced garlic, sautéing for about 1 minute. Add the cooked potatoes, cooking for 3 to 5 minutes until the potatoes are lightly browned.
  6. Serve immediately, optionally topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
