New York Strips Steaks, Pan Seared With Cherry Tomatoes and Smashed Potatoes
As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about……..more updated steak and potatoes! There is something so appealing about a stick to your ribs dinner as the weather is getting colder. While a juicy grilled steak and good old fashioned mashed potatoes sound delicious, why not take it up a notch? I am totally on a roll with my Nick. Normally he is not much of a carnivore, he’s a pasta guy, but as he was clearing his plate he said, “This is the best steak ever!” High praise from someone whose idea of culinary excellence is fast food dining……..
Timing is everything. I prefer to have all of my ingredients prepped before I start cooking for a more streamlined process. For instance, I also served Smashed Potatoes (the recipe follows immediately), so I already boiled and smashed the potatoes prior to cooking the steaks. That way, when I was finished with the skillet I used for the steak, I could use it right away to finish off the potatoes. It couldn’t be simpler!
