Ingredient Notes And Substitutions

  • Sirloin Steak: A lean yet flavorful cut. Feel free to use top sirloin steak, ribeye, flank steak, or NY strip instead.
  • Baby Potatoes: I use 2 baby red potatoes for this recipe. If they are large, simply cut them in half or in quarters. They are quick to cook and absorb flavors well. Fingerlings can also be used.
  • Carrot: Adds color and nutrients. You can also use parsnips.
  • Olive Oil: A healthy fat that aids roasting. Avocado oil is another option.
  • Dried Rosemary: Pairs well with both steak and potatoes. Thyme is a good substitute.
  • Garlic: For that classic flavor. Garlic powder can be used in a pinch.
  • Kosher Salt: Enhances all the flavors.
  • Black Pepper: Adds a little kick. Crushed red pepper offers a spicier twist.

How To Cook Steak And Potatoes

These step-by-step photos and instructions help you visualize how to make sheet pan steak and potatoes. See the recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  1. Set Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) to ensure a quick and even roast.
  2. Prepare the Veggies: Place the chopped baby red potatoes, chopped carrot, and whole cloves of garlic on a 9×13-inch sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with kosher salt, black pepper, and dried rosemary. Toss everything together to ensure even coating.

Pro Tip: For even cooking, make sure your vegetables are cut to roughly the same size. This ensures that all the ingredients will roast at the same rate.

  1. First Bake: Slide the sheet pan into the preheated oven and roast the vegetables for 20 minutes. This gives them a head start and ensures everything finishes cooking at the same time.
  2. Steak Prep: Meanwhile, cut the sirloin steak into 1/2-inch thick slices. In a bowl or on a plate, combine the steak slices with olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, and dried rosemary. Mix well to coat the meat.

Expert Tips

  • Before you start cooking, make sure to read the entire recipe, including the Ingredient Notes section, and examine the process photos. This detailed guide will help you understand how the recipe unfolds, ensuring your Sheet Pan Steak and Potatoes turns out perfect every time. All the information you need is found within the body of this recipe post, so don’t miss a thing!
  • Even Sizing Matters: For uniform cooking, cut the potatoes and carrots into pieces that are roughly the same size. This ensures everything will be done at the same time.
  • Test for Doneness: Use a meat thermometer to check the steak’s internal temperature. For medium-rare, aim for 130-135°F; for medium, 135-145°F; and for well-done, 145-155°F.
  • Rest the Steak: Allow the steak to rest for a few minutes after taking it out of the oven. This lets the juices redistribute, making for a juicier piece of meat.

  1. Wow! Just terrific! I live alone and have always wanted recipes for one!! I can’t wait to try them all. Thank you thank you!

  2. This is a good reciepe. I cut my steak strips about 1″ – 1.5″ thick as I like my steak medium rare. I would put some mushrooms in next time.
    I did add shrimp this time and it made a great surf and turf meal with easy clean up.
    Will make again.
