A Dude's Dinner in 20min
Sauteed (Brunoise) Potatoes
(Leftover) Mashed Potatoes
Cherry Tomato Salad
Couldn't be easier and oh so yummy.
Skirt steaks were on sale at the local A&P so picked a pound of it up.
I had some leftover potato salad in the fridge and to give it a little fresh kick, I stirred in 1/2 a teaspoon of lemon zest.
This totally transformed it into a summery dish.
As for the Cherry Tomatoes, I just halved them and tossed in some olive oil, vinegar and season.
And finally the sauteed potatoes were just an instant creation. I was thinking I wanted something I could just constantly spoon feed myself so it had to be already chopped up.
I finely chopped a single yukon gold into about 1/8 inch cubes. Did the same thing with a shallot and about a tablespoon worth of green peppers.
All cut into uniform tiny cubes and sauteed for about 3 min in the fry pan. Once the starch started breaking down and clinging to the fry pan, I deglazed with some chicken stock and constantly stirred an additional 1 min. Once all reduced to a slight thicker consistancy, I removed into a bowl and just waited on my steak to finish up.
Plate and Voila!
