Pan-Seared Steak and Loaded Hash Browns for Two
Dinners that feel fancy but require little-to-no effort? That’s our jam. NY strip is pan seared in the skillet and slathered with garlic butter before hash browns loaded with cheese and bacon are added for a complete dinner for two.MORE+LESS-
boneless beef strip steak, 1 inch thick (about 3/4 lb total)
teaspoons Montreal steak grill seasoning
tablespoons vegetable oil
cups frozen shredded hash browns (10 oz from 30-oz bag)
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
cup thinly sliced green onions
slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
tablespoons butter, softened
teaspoon finely chopped garlic
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.
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.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix softened butter, garlic and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Spread steak with butter mixture, and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Serve with hash browns.
- 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.
