  • Shallow Baking Dish
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • sheet pan
  • aluminum foil


For the Steak:

  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon Soy Sauce (use Tamari to make this recipe gluten-free)
  • 2 tablespoon Cooking Oil
  • 2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1 lb Skirt Steak, thinly sliced against the grain (sub hanger or flank steak)

For the Potatoes:

  • 2 tablespoon Cooking Oil
  • 1.5 lbs Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes, quartered (sub any baby potatoes)
  • 2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • Chopped Parsley or Chives, for topping (optional)
  • Sour cream, for serving (optional)


  • Combine garlic, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, 2 tablespoon cooking oil, 2 teaspoon salt, and dried thyme. Add steak and turn to coat in marinade. Pierce it a few times with a fork to help the marinade soak in. Let steak marinate while preparing potatoes. (If it will be less than 15 minutes and you just took the steak out of the fridge, you can leave it out so that it comes to room temperature before cooking. If it will be any longer, return it to the fridge.)
  • Preheat oven to 450°F / 232°C.
  • Drizzle cooking oil over a sheet pan, tipping the pan to evenly coat.
  • Scatter potatoes over the pan and cover very tightly with foil (you might need to sheets of foil).
  • Transfer potatoes to the oven and roast, covered, for 25 minutes.
  • Remove potatoes and turn on the oven's broiler. (Make sure that an oven rack is positioned about 6-inches from the heat source. If it’s too far away the steak will take a long time to cook. Too close and the steak might burn before it’s cooked through.)
  • Whisk together olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Pour over potatoes and toss everything to combine.
  • Nestle marinated steak in the center of the potatoes. Season the top of the steak generously with black pepper and a small sprinkle of extra kosher salt.
  • Slide sheet pan under the broiler and cook until steak is lightly cooked on top, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove pan and flip steak to the other side. Turn / stir potatoes with a spatula. Season steak with some additional black pepper and salt.
  • Return pan to oven and continue broiling until potatoes are tender and steak is golden brown and cooked to your liking, 4 to 8 minutes more (depending on how you like your steak cooked).
  • Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest, covered, for 5 minutes. Slice against the grain.
  • Toss potatoes with parsley or chives.


Make Ahead - Steak can be marinated up to 1 day ahead.
