  • 1

    Season steak on both sides with grill seasoning. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Cook steak in oil 7 to 10 minutes, turning once, until medium-rare to medium (145°F to 160°F). Transfer steak to cutting board, and keep warm. Wipe out skillet with paper towels.

    In medium bowl, mix hash browns, salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil to skillet; heat over medium heat. Pack mixture firmly in skillet, leaving 1/2-inch space around edge.

  • 3

    Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon oil evenly over hash browns. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until bottom is brown. Using a heat-proof silicone spatula, cut hash browns in half; turn over carefully. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until bottom is browned. Top with cheese, green onions and bacon.

Expert Tips

  • To complete your steakhouse experience, serve with sautéed spinach or green beans.
  • Cutting the hash browns in half in the pan makes them easier to turn over. Make sure to use a heatproof silicone spatula though, as a metal one may scratch your nonstick pan.
