What’s for dinner? – Ribeye steak with smashed potatoes


This is a delicious and satisfying recipe  for all in the family. I had to improvise using medium size yellow golden potatoes instead of small potatoes. Also I did not use a oven to bake them as it is done usually after you boil them.


2 pieces Ribeye steak – 1 inch thick each
5 medium size golden potatoes
1 Tbsp cooking oil

Preparations & cooking directions 

In a medium size pot put 5 potatoes half way peeled as seen in the above picture.
Boil them for 20-25 minuets, depends how big they are.
Rinse in cold water.
When cool and safe to touch cut them in large pieces.
Smash them with the back of a ice cream scoop being careful to don’t brake them in little pieces.
Put the potatoes aside.

Season the steak generously with the seasoning of your choice , plain salt, seasoning salt or steak seasoning.
In a large pan put 1 Tbsp of oil.
Put the pan over a large burner on high heat setting.
Place the steaks in the pan and cook for 4 minuets then turn it on the other side.
Cook for another 3 minuets on the other side. If you like the steak well done continue to cook few more minutes according to your liking.

Take the steaks out and let them rest for 4 minuets before you cut them in slices.

Meanwhile put 3 Tbsp water in the pan.
Scrape slightly the pan with a plastic spatula and take 3 -5 Tbsp of the drippings and mix them in another pan with the smashed potatoes for 5 minuets over high heat.
According to your liking add seasoning to the potatoes . You can add plain salt , rosemary , garlic salt or thyme.

Side note: When you scrape the pan don’t do it vigorously since you may have some spots on the pan that are to dry and turned black. This is also the reason why I use another pan to mix the potatoes.
In the main picture is displayed only one of the steaks and half of the potatoes. I served the steak and potatoes with a side of salad.
