Notes

COOK'S NOTES:
FOR THE POTATOES
  • Potatoes take longer to cook than steak. For that reason, I have a couple of suggestions:
Precook or parboil the potatoes. To parboil small potatoes, you'll need to place the potatoes in a pot with cold water and bring to a boil. Turn down heat to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes. Drain and let cool for a minute or two, then cut and continue with the recipe.
OR
Don’t precook the potatoes, but cut them up to about one inch cubes. Also try to use mini Yukon gold potatoes because they work best with the cook time.
FOR THE STEAK
For a rare or medium-rare steak, I suggest cutting the steak into larger pieces because, as stated before, the potatoes need more time to cook. If you like a well done steak, cut the steak into 1-inch pieces.
