Southwest Steak & Potatoes

Bold seasonings give meat and potatoes a Southwest twist. Feel free to adjust the heat factor by using more or less chili powder. —Kenny Fisher, Lancaster, Ohio

    I would give this meal a 5 star, but the potatoes fell apart. I will try this recipe again, but will quarter the potatoes instead of slicing them to see if they hold up better.

    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!
