"Enjoyed the flavors in this - a nice twist to grilled steak. Yukon gold potatoes hold up well but need to be microwaved enough to cook fast when placed on the grill."

"This was very good. I had large potatoes and they should have been microwaved a bit longer as it took longer on the grill to get them done. I will make again"

"My husband loved this recipe and said he would definitely like to have it again. He's usually straight meat and potato-type; no fancy stuff, but this one really impressed!"
