Prep Time
40 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak, 2/3 cup potatoes, and 3 tablespoons sauce)

The tangy sauce dresses up a steakhouse favorite. Packaged potato wedges round out the dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle both sides of steak with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper; add steak to pan. Cook 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Keep warm.

Step 3

Wipe pan with a paper towel; return to heat. Recoat pan with cooking spray. Add the potatoes; sauté 15 minutes or until browned and thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Serve with steak and sauce.

This was ok. The sauce contributed nothing to the steak. It was easy to make, but I wouldn't make it again. The steak leftovers were tough so I would cut into four pieces instead of slices for better reheating.

dont bother

This is hands down the worst sauce I have ever had with steak. I usually do a mushroom garlic sauce but was low on mushrooms... I really can't understand how previous reviewers have liked this sauce, other than maybe they have never tried a nice sauce before. Do not even try this recipe, especially if you like food that tastes nice.

This was pretty good! I used fresh terragon since I had it (3 times the dried amount) and served it with spicy potatoes and asparagus found on this site. A delicious meal! I will say the 5 minutes on each side overcooked the steaks - made them medium and we prefer medium rare. But next time we know to adjust.

I cooked fresh red skin potatoes in a separate skillet at the same time. Love the tang of the sauce.

This is REALLY good. Super easy to make and great for both the steak and the potatoes. I will definitely make this again!

Great!! Made it tonight. Boiled fingerling poatoes then pan fried them instead of using frozen. I had the fingerlings on hand. And grillled the steak instead of frying it because it's summer. Served it with steamed buttered green beans. My 12 year old said, "The steak is great, but it's AMAZING with the sauce." Super fast.

This was great. I accidentally used the wrong type of steak, so I can't say too much for that, but the sauce tastes straight out of a nice steakhouse. Great for dipping steak and the fries. We used the leftovers to make little mini sandwiches on dinner rolls the next day.
