Hanger steak is a flavor-packed cut of beef from between the rib and the loin. You may have to ask for it at the butcher's counter; if you can't find it, a different flat cut, like flank or skirt steak, works just as well. If your steak is thicker than 1 inch, it may require a slightly longer cook time or a quick finish in a 400°F oven.

Serves 4 (serving size: 3 oz. steak and about 2/3 cup potatoes)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chiles, canned in adobo sauce
2 teaspoons adobo sauce
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
5/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 (16-oz.) hanger steak
1 (24-oz.) pkg. refrigerated mashed sweet potatoes (such as Simply Potatoes)
1/2 cup light sour cream
2 tablespoons sliced green onions


1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high. Combine chipotle, adobo sauce, oil, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 3/8 teaspoon salt. Rub mixture evenly over both sides of steak. Place steak on pan; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Transfer steak to a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices.

2. Heat potatoes according to package directions. Stir in sour cream, remaining 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Divide steak and potatoes evenly among 4 plates. Sprinkle with onions.
