This recipe is a favorite with my family. The potato cakes made it fun and different, and the kids love to help make them.—Kristin Arnett
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + marinating Cook: 25 min. YIELD:8-12 servings


  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 12 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 beef top sirloin steak (2 inches thick and about 3-1/2 pounds)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 pounds white potatoes (about 6 large)
  • 12 green onions, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 large onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Season steak with salt and pepper; add to bag. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for serving.
  • 2. For potato cakes, place potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook until just tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and refrigerate until chilled. Peel and shred potatoes. Transfer to a large bowl; add green onions. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, cumin, salt and pepper; gently mix into potatoes. Form into round patties (about 2-1/2 in. diameter). Cover and refrigerate up to 6 hours.
  • 3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, fry cakes in batches in 2 tablespoons oil for 8 minutes per side or until golden brown. Add remaining oil as needed.
  • 4. For onions and peppers, in a large skillet, saute onions in oil for 4 minutes. Add peppers; saute for about 5 minutes or until peppers begin to soften. Add marjoram and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat and keep warm.
  • 5. Let steak stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Discard marinade; pat steak dry. Broil steak 6 in. from the heat for 12 minutes on each side or until steak reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 6. Let stand for 10 minutes. Thinly slice steak across the grain; arrange on a serving platter with onions and peppers and potato cakes. Heat the reserved marinade and serve with steak. Yield: 8-12 servings.
