Garlic butter steak and potatoes skillet

Garlic butter steak and potatoes skillet is a delicious and hearty dish perfect for a satisfying dinner. Here’s a simple recipe to make it:


  • 2 medium-sized steaks (such as ribeye or sirloin)
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, washed and diced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary (optional)
  • Olive oil


  1. Prepare the Steaks:
  • Take the steaks out of the refrigerator and let them sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before cooking. This helps them cook more evenly.
  • Season both sides of the steaks generously with salt and pepper.
  1. Cook the Potatoes:
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the diced potatoes to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and tender, about 10-15 minutes. You can cover the skillet to cook them faster.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, remove them from the skillet and set them aside.
  1. Cook the Steaks:
  • In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the seasoned steaks to the skillet. Cook the steaks for about 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or longer if you prefer your steaks more well-done.
  • If you like, you can add some fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary to the skillet while the steaks are cooking for extra flavor.
  • Once the steaks are cooked to your liking, remove them from the skillet and let them rest on a cutting board for a few minutes.
  1. Prepare the Garlic Butter Sauce:
  • In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant but not browned.
  • Once the garlic is cooked, return the cooked potatoes to the skillet and toss them in the garlic butter sauce until they are well coated.
  1. Serve:
  • Slice the cooked steaks against the grain into strips.
  • Serve the sliced steak alongside the garlic butter potatoes.
  • Optionally, you can drizzle any remaining garlic butter sauce from the skillet over the steak slices before serving.

Enjoy your garlic butter steak and potatoes skillet!
