Tips on Making Steak and Potatoes in Oven
This garlic steak and potatoes recipe is pretty straightforward that even beginners can make it. On top of that, we have more helpful tips and techniques to ensure that you cook a perfectly juicy steak at home every time.
- Rest the steak for 30 minutes to an hour at room temperature before cooking. Cold steak won’t cook evenly.
- Ribeye, porterhouse, NY strip, or top sirloin steaks? Use any as you prefer for this baked steak recipe.
- You can also use any type of potato, like yukon gold potatoes, russet, or even sweet potatoes. We just used baby potatoes because they’re cute and small and will cook easily. If you happen to only have regular potatoes, just cut them into about 1-inch cubes so that they will finish cooking around the same time as the steaks. You can also toss in some carrots, bell pepper, or zucchini.
- The steak sauce baste gives it a beautiful brown color. But if you’ve got extra time, you give the steak a quick sear on a very hot pan before baking it.
- Customize your steak potatoes by seasoning them with your favorite spice mix. You can add chili pepper flakes for some heat, paprika for a smokey flavor, or Italian seasoning and garlic powder for an herbier and stronger flavor.
- Save the pan drippings. Add a bit of butter, olive oil, some garlic, steak sauce, and cooked white rice. Mix it up and you get the easiest and most delicious steak rice. Cut up some steak bites to top over the rice for a meaty and carb-loaded meal!
Wondering what goes good with steak? Some of the best side dishes for steak are sauteed green beans, corn on the cob, and of course, garlic butter to make it taste even richer. Feel free to get creative with your steak dinner ideas by pairing them with any of these.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you cook meat and potatoes at the same time?
Yes, you can cook them together and they will finish cooking at the same time when baked, just like what we did for this sheet pan steak and baked potato recipe. For other steak cooking methods, however, like cooking on a hot pan on the stove, the steaks will finish first. If that’s the case, it’ll be a good idea to boil the potatoes until they’re half tender to give them a head start.
Should I wrap my steak in foil?
It’s not necessary to wrap steak in foil if you’re going to baste them every once in a while as you bake them. Foil helps keep moisture so that the steaks won’t dry out, and not having foil here is compensated by basting.
At what temperature do you bake steaks and potatoes in oven?
Baking the beef and potatoes at 350 degrees F preheated oven is a good place to start. It’s not too hot nor too cold. You may begin checking for doneness at the 15 minute mark using a meat thermometer. It’s 125 degrees F for a rare steak, 135 degrees F for medium rare, 145 degrees F for medium, 150 degrees F for medium well, and 160 degrees F for well done.
ConclusionSay goodbye to tough and rubbery steaks by making your steak and potatoes in oven instead. It’s still just as juicy, tender, and delicious, but with less risk of overcooking.
