Step 1: What you'll need
First off, you'll need a little room to work. Clear off your counter and give it a good scrub. If you have a cat, feed him now so he won't jump up on the counter while you're cooking. If you are short on space, try moving your microwave to the living room. This sounds kooky, but just think about it: more room to cook, and when you ARE eating Hot Pockets, they're one step closer to your mouth when the timer goes off. :)
So this is what you'll need.
9 oz ribeye steak
1 large yellow onion
Some cloves of garlic
3 small potatoes
2 large carrots
salt and pepper
You can optionally add whatever other veggies are hiding in your fridge. I had some jalapenos with nowhere else to be, so I added a couple of those. You can also add some butter into the mix.
Step 3: OK, let's start!
Put some oil in the pan.. enough to cover the entire bottom of the pan.
Turn the heat up to medium high.
In the background I have some rice cooking. You'll get plenty of starch from your potatoes, so rice is optional. I just happened to want some, today.
Step 4: Step 2: prep and cook
Now, the two worst things that can happen to this dish are 1. undercooked potatoes or 2. overcooked steak. So we'll start with the potatoes.
Chop the potatoes and put them in your pan.
Step 5: Adding the onion and garlic
Now is also a good time to add some salt to the pan.
