Garlic Butter Steak with Potatoes

Carenivor's very first recipe! Always on a winner with steak and potatoes, especially with the addition of lovely herbs and spices. And it works however you like your steak - although it might go over 30 mins if you like it really well-done!


  • 2 whole potatoes diced

  • 1 (1.5”-2” thick) ribeye steak

  • 3 tbsp of soy sauce

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 2 tbsp of sugar.

  • 4 tbsp butter

  • 45g / ⅓ cup of parmesan cheese

  • Chopped parsley

  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled

  • ½ tsp of chilli flakes

  • ½ tsp of cajun seasoning

  • ½ tsp of complete seasoning

  • Water


  • Add the potatoes to a medium-sized pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, and continue to cook until the potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes on medium-high heat. Drain the potatoes and set aside.

  • Season the steak generously all over with your seasonings, soy sauce, and sugar. Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over high heat until beginning to smoke. Add the steak to the skillet and cook, flipping every 30 seconds or so for a total of 4 minutes, or until a brown crust forms. Sear the sides as well.

  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter, garlic. Once the butter has melted, tilt the pan slightly so that the butter collects by the handle and use a spoon to splash the steak with the hot butter. Continue to baste, flipping the steak occasionally, until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the steak registers 49--54°C for rare, or 54-57°C for medium rare (about 3-4 more minutes) - here's a guide for all cooking preferences. Set the steak aside to rest.

  • Meanwhile, place the potatoes back into the skillet, add a little water and allow to cook.

  • Continue to cook the potatoes until golden, about 2 more minutes.

  • Slice the steak, if desired, and serve with the potatoes. garnished with your parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. 

  • Serve and Enjoy!
