  • 1 pound steak (cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup olive oil divided
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 medium russet potatoes (cut into strips)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup pico de gallo  optional topping
  • ½ cup guacamole  optional topping
  • ½ cup sour cream  optional topping


  • In a shallow tupperware or Ziploc bag, add steak, lemon juice, 3/4 cup olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper. Stir or shake to combine. Place in refrigerator and let marinade for 1-2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Place russet potatoes in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil. Toss with hands to coat all the potatoes with oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder, paprika and salt and pepper.

  • Remove steak from the refrigerator and cook in a skillet over medium-high heat until it reaches desired doneness.
  • Place potatoes on an oven-safe dish and top with steak and cheese. Broil for 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted.
