How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.

  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.

  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.

  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.
