Pan-Seared Steak with Lime Zest, Roasted with Peppered Potatoes and Onions

Pan Seared Steak

by @ianh977

It doesn't happen often, but we occasionally like a standard meat and potatoes dish.  It has to have just a little flare of course, so this time we added a bit of lime zest to make it zing. What's your favorite way to prepare this old school staple?



8 oz angus beef steak

1 Tbsp. butter

salt and pepper to taste

2 red potatoes

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/4 cup minced garlic

1/2 lime

6 basil leaves



Pre-heat over to 350 degrees.

Put a large frying pan and turn on medium heat.

Add butter to the pan until melted and coating the entire bottom.

 Place the steak in the pan and cook for seven minutes on each side.

Salt each side to taste. 

Cut up potatoes in to one inch cubes and place in a small bowl. Season potatoes with pepper and set aside

Take a large piece of aluminum foil (about twice the size of your steak) and place three basil leaves in the middle.

Remove steak from pan and place on top of the basil leaves.

Place the last three basil leaves on the top of the steak.

Place the onions, garlic, and potatoes on top of and around the steak.

Take the lime and squeeze the juices onto the steak and wrap the excess foil around the steak and other ingredients.

Place the foil on a roasting pan and place in the middle of the oven for 45 minutes..

Remove from over and unwrap foil.

Discard basil leaves. Plate your steak and other ingredients and garnish with lime zest.
