    • Crushed red pepper flakes (optional) - For those who like a touch of heat, crushed red pepper flakes add a delightful kick.
  • The Savory Marinade:

    • 1/3 cup soy sauce - Soy sauce adds a salty and umami depth to the steak.
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil - Adds moisture and helps tenderize the steak.
    • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (optional) - For a touch of spice, add hot sauce to the marinade.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Marinating the Steak: In a large bowl, combine the sliced steak, soy sauce, olive oil, black pepper, and hot sauce (if using). Let the steak marinate while you prepare the potatoes. This step allows the flavors to soak into the meat, resulting in a more flavorful steak.

  2. Cooking the Potatoes: Heat a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the quartered potatoes and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and tender. Transfer the cooked potatoes to a plate.

  3. Searing the Steak: In the same skillet (no need to wash!), melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the crushed garlic and crushed red pepper flakes (if using) and cook for a minute until fragrant.

  4. Building the Flavor: Add the fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, oregano) to the pan and stir to combine.

  5. Searing and Cooking the Steak: Carefully place the steak slices in a single layer in the pan. Don't overcrowd the pan, as this can prevent the steak from searing properly. Cook the steak for 1-2 minutes per side, depending on your desired level of doneness.

  6. Bringing it All Together: Just before the steak is cooked through, add the reserved marinade to the pan. Let it simmer for a minute, allowing the flavors to meld. Return the cooked potatoes to the pan and toss everything together to coat in the savory sauce.

  7. Seasoning and Serving: Season the dish with salt and black pepper to taste. Turn off the heat and serve immediately. Garnish with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes (for an extra kick) and a dusting of Parmesan cheese (if desired).

Enjoy this delicious and easy family favorite!
