This delicious and simple one-dish meal is an American classic. Weighing in at only 326 calories, it's healthier than its traditional steak and baked potato counterpart while not sacrificing any of the flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Combine potatoes, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on a baking sheet, tossing to coat. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until tender, stirring after 10 minutes. Add 2 teaspoons oregano to pan; toss to coat.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Rub steak with 1 teaspoon oil; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add steak to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place steak on a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes. Cut across the grain into thin slices.

Step 4

Return pan to medium-high heat. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add shallots and garlic to pan; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon oregano, tomato, and sugar; cook 1 minute. Stir in vinegar. Spoon tomato mixture evenly over steak. Serve with potato mixture.

I used my cast iron skillet; took about 7-8 minutes per side with another 5 to rest.  Simple meal, really.  We like crispy spuds so I baked for 40 minutes.  Will make again.

The combination of steak and tomatoes with the fingerling potatoes in delicious. However, I never seem to get flank steak right. It's always tough. In the future I will ask my butcher to recommend a different cut of meat, or perhaps I will try pounding the flank steak a bit before cooking.

I'll be making this again

This was absolutely fantastic.  Don't overcook the steak, but the combination of flavors is delicious.  Big hit.  Would definitely make this for company.
