Steak & Potato Salad

I love a good steak and potato. So, why not turn this popular combo into a Steak & Potato Salad? Let’s do it!

This meal is as easy as cutting up some potatoes and steak, then popping it into a hot cast iron skillet. (ad) Add a few tomatoes and parmesan cheese. In only 25 minutes…you’ve got one of the best tasting salads this side of heaven!

The potatoes are crispy on the outside, yet tender on the inside. And, since this recipe calls for filet mignon, the steak will melt in your mouth after cooking it for only a few minutes.

How to Make It

First, cut 2 baking potatoes into long wedges, leaving the skins intact. Season the potato wedges with steak seasoning and garlic salt. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a cast iron skillet with 3 tablespoons of olive oil.

Place potatoes in the skillet and cook over medium heat, turning often. Cook for 15 minutes until tender, then drain and set aside. Keep the grease in the skillet for the beef.

Cut 2 filets of beef into long strips and place in the skillet over medium heat. Turn several times with a spatula, until all sides are browned. Cook for a total of 2 minutes, then remove from skillet and drain.

Assembling the Salad

Arrange mixed greens on a plate, then scatter sliced baby tomatoes on the greens. Pile several potato wedges in the middle of the greens, and add a few steak slices on two sides.

Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese over the salad, then top with dressing of your choice. I like to use ranch dressing, but you could also use blue cheese if preferred.

Dive in! It’s amazing!
