Easy Steak & Potato Meal for Two
Inviting a friend over? Prepare a simple steak and potato slow cooker dinner.
One steak is all you need unless you and your friend are big eaters. My friend invited me over for a write-in.
We’re both writing books and working hard to meet deadlines. When I arrived, she surprised me with the announcement that she was cooking our dinner in the slow cooker.
I couldn’t resist peeking to see what was cooking. Four potatoes and a steak.
The nice thing about cooking four potatoes is that my friend has leftovers. We only ate one potato each. She saved half of her steak half (yep, that means I ate ALL of my half😉).
Steak leftovers can be made into sandwiches, chili, burritos – or just steak.
My friend seasoned the steak perfectly, and she has a great way to cook the potatoes. She cuts the end off and hits them hard three times with a sharp knife to break the skin. That way, the potatoes don’t explode. Pretty cool, huh?

Dinner was superb! My friend Barbara and I accomplished a good bit of work.
The day had started out for me with frustration due to Internet technicalities – not fun for a blogger.
In addition, I took photos with my phone camera. The pictures are sideways. That also adds more setbacks to a food blogger.
In spite of the technical Internet and phone problems, any stress was outweighed by the delicious steak dinner and team writing.
