Garlic Butter Steak Bites and Cheesy Smashed Potatoes

Ingredients

**For the Garlic Butter Steak Bites:**
– 1 pound (450g) sirloin steak, cut into bite-sized pieces
– 4 cloves garlic, minced
– 3 tablespoons butter
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
**For the Cheesy Smashed Potatoes:**
– 1.5 pounds (680g) baby potatoes
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 3 tablespoons butter, melted
– 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Fresh chives, chopped (for garnish)

 Instructions

**For the Cheesy Smashed Potatoes:**
1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
2. Boil the baby potatoes in a large pot of salted water until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain and let them cool slightly.
3. Place the boiled potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a fork or potato masher to gently smash each potato, flattening them slightly.
4. Drizzle the smashed potatoes with olive oil and melted butter. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are crispy.
6. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
7. Garnish with chopped chives before serving.
**For the Garlic Butter Steak Bites:**
1. While the potatoes are baking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add the steak bites to the skillet in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Cook the steak bites for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Remove the steak bites from the skillet and set aside.
4. In the same skillet, add the butter and minced garlic. Cook for about 1 minute, or until the garlic is fragrant and the butter is melted.
5. Return the steak bites to the skillet and toss to coat them in the garlic butter sauce. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, ensuring the steak bites are well-coated.
6. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
**To Serve:**
1. Plate the cheesy smashed potatoes alongside the garlic butter steak bites.
2. Garnish with extra parsley and chives if desired.
3. Enjoy your delicious meal!
