A fresh new take on an old favorite: One Pan Steak And Potatoes.

If you’re anything like me, you can only have “steak and potatoes” every once in a while because it can get old and uninspired. I need to change it up. I need more flavor. I need variety and twists.

So, I made a few healthy and flavorful tweaks to the old favorite of steak and potatoes. Instead of using a large ribeye or New York steak, I chose a sirloin and sliced it very thinly. This was for a few reasons: thinly sliced steak cooks faster, is easier to chew if it tends to be a tough cut, and doesn’t require you to cut your steak while you’re eating your meal. Read: this makes things easier overall on your mouth and eating experience.

I also chose to add carrots and mushrooms along with the potatoes to add color, texture, and a little sweetness. I think this was a good call because it was delicious!

I think the best thing about this meal is the vibrant citrus-soy flavor you get from the lemon, soy sauce, orange juice, and ginger. The flavor is very tasty and makes the meal feel light, even though it’s satisfying like a big plate of steak and potatoes. Perfect!

A quick tip: try popping the steak in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes before slicing. This will make the steak much easier to slice than when it’s fully thawed.
