This smoky steak potato and pepper skillet is an easy one-pan dinner, ready in just 40 minutes. Toss everything together in the skillet, stick it in the oven and forget about it!
Yesterday was just one of those days. The days where a bunch of little things keep adding up and come 4pm you’re feeling totally unsettled and like there are a million things going on in the background of your mind, half of them have no answer or resolution, the other half require a TON of work and no time to do it all.
The icing on the cake for me was the random comparison Brandy and I did of our computers side by side to look at our pictures.
I’ve been a PC girl for my entire life constantly making fun off all the Mac users for paying triple what I would on a computer but when you see all your work on your site side by side on a PC and a Mac and you realize everything looks like complete CRAP on your computer, you freak the hell out and change your tune.
After about an hour of deliberation (coupled with freak outs and whining in between), I ordered a Mac.
Yep, in 60 minutes I decided to spend $2,000.
I’ll talk myself out of that $25 pedicure like a pro to save money yet I’ll drop two grand on a computer in an hour. Um, ok?
So I have no idea what this smoky steak potato and pepper skillet looks like on your computer screen but hopefully it’s not an oversaturated jumble of purples, oranges, reds and greens.
It looks good on my end but apparently this HP can’t be trusted.
Besides its looks, this skillet has one other amazing thing going for it…it’s a one-pan, toss it all together in the pan, throw it in the oven and pull it out 40 minutes later for dinner kind of meal.
The best part is, I’m sharing 5 other easy one-pan meals with you today from my healthy blogger buddies.

And back to mine…
Simple is the name of the game with this one.
Just some garlic powder and smoked paprika spice this skillet meal up. 40 minutes gives just enough time to roast the potatoes while the steak still stays tender.
The peppers and onions start to caramelize in the butter and oil and you’ll be shocked at how much flavor this simple ingredient list packs into each bite.
Now tell me, are you a Mac or a PC person? I still can’t believe I’ve crossed over to the dark side.
