Cheesy Steak and Potato Skillet

Cheesy Steak and Potato Skillet is a delicious and hearty dish perfect for a cozy dinner. Here’s a simple recipe to make it:


Table of Contents

  • 1 lb (450g) steak, thinly sliced (you can use sirloin, flank, or ribeye)
  • 4 medium potatoes, diced into small cubes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: chopped green onions or parsley for garnish


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced potatoes to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and tender, about 10-12 minutes. Remove the cooked potatoes from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Cook the Steak:
    • In the same skillet, add a little more olive oil if needed. Add the thinly sliced steak to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook the steak until it’s browned on all sides, about 3-4 minutes. Remove the cooked steak from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Sauté Onion and Garlic:
    • Add the chopped onion to the skillet and sauté until it becomes translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  4. Combine Steak and Potatoes:
    • Return the cooked steak and potatoes to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Stir everything together until well combined.
  5. Add Cheese:
    • Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the steak and potato mixture in the skillet. Cover the skillet with a lid and let it cook for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the cheese is melted, remove the skillet from heat. Garnish with chopped green onions or parsley if desired. Serve the cheesy steak and potato skillet hot and enjoy!
