Skillet Beef and Potatoes

Sirloin strips with red potatoes and fresh rosemary are seriously amazing and ready in a flash. The key is precooking potatoes in the microwave to speed the process. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    ..this looks like a good recipe. I agree that a simple brown gravy with a few mushrooms would make this a recipe to put in the rotation

    Quick and easy to make. Flavor was ok (wife loved it!) but we both agreed that there needed to be a sauce or gravy of some sort--dish was too dry as is.

    it was good but I did have to add salt to the garlic pepper blend for a little more flavor. It was super easy to make too.
