Buck's Butter Steak & Potatoes Skillet

Buck's Butter Steak and Potatoes Skillet

If anyone ever says you can fry potatoes in less than 10 minutes, they are full of sh*t. When fine-tuning this recipe, I was told to fry potatoes for 10 minutes. The potatoes took an hour to fry and they were barely edible. To speed up the process, I had to add so much oil that my potatoes were bathing in it. It tasted awful. Here is how to make the best Garlic Butter Steak you will ever have and how to properly fry potatoes, fast.

For the steak and the potatoes:

  • 1 1/2 lb flank steak. (Be sure to slice against the grain)

  • 1 1/2 lb baby yellow potatoes. Quarter them. 

  • Olive oil

  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 5 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped

  • Bald Buck: Bold Taste. Use Bald Buck: Slow Burn if you like a little spice.  

  • Cracked pepper

The marinade

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (we used Sriracha)

  • Fresh cracked pepper


1. Combine the steak strips with soy sauce, olive oil, pepper, and hot sauce in a large bowl. Set aside to marinate while you cook potatoes.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add quartered potatoes. Barely cover them with water (no lid), and then boil the water off, flipping the pieces about halfway through. This takes around 10 minutes. Then I dump oil and Bald Buck seasoning to taste right as the water disappears. After that, I pan-fry for 5 minutes. You could nuke the potatoes to get the boiling part done quicker, but I'm not a fan of microwaves, so I do most everything on the stove. When your potatoes are golden and fork-tender. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

3. Keep the same skillet over medium heat and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, garlic, and fresh herbs. Lay the steak strips in one layer in the skillet, keeping the drained marinade for later. Cook on each side for 1 minute each, until nicely browned – adjust timing depending on how you like your steak.

4. Right before the steak is done, you can stir in the reserved marinade if you like, and cook for one minute. Add the potatoes back to the pan and heat. If needed, add more Bald Buck seasoning to taste.

5. Remove from heat and serve immediately, garnished with more, fresh herbs, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese over the potatoes if you like. Enjoy!
