One Skillet Meal – Sirloin Steak and Potatoes

As a busy mom, I am constantly trying to find ways to simplify my life. Dinner is one of the areas I often choose to make as easy as possible, and in more ways than one! Standing in the kitchen preparing the main course and 3-4 accompaniments just isn’t my thing. It’s not that I don’t enjoy doing it; it’s that I just don’t have time for it. I also have a confession. I absolutely HATE doing dishes, so if I have the opportunity to create a meal in just one dish, you’d better believe that that’s what I’ll be making. One of the simple, one skillet meals that my family and I love is Sirloin Steak and Potatoes. It’s quick, easy and there’s very little prep time involved. The best part? It’s just one dirty pan! Woot!

Sirloin Steak and Potatoes – Easy One Skillet Meal

If you’re looking for easy, one skillet meal recipes to make dinner a breeze, then don’t pass up this recipe for Sirloin Steak and Potatoes! It’s packed with flavor and you can add additional veggies if you choose, which is what I tend to do quite often. This recipe can be prepared in the crock pot or in a skillet, depending on how much time you have to prepare.


1 lb sirloin steak, cubed or cut into small strips

2 -3 large baking potatoes, sliced (about a 1/4 inch thick

1 onion, quartered and separated

1 cup fresh baby carrots

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1 cup water

3 dashes Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon Weber Kansas City Steak Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon pepper

One large, lidded skillet

Optional Ingredients:

1 celery stalk, chopped into 1/4 inch pieces

1 cup whole frozen green beans

1 cup sugar snap peas or frozen peas

Skillet Preparation: 

Saute meat and onions on medium-high heat for 3 minutes with one tablespoon of butter and 1/2 teaspoon of Weber Kansas City Steak Seasoning.

Reduce heat to medium and add all remaining ingredients. Cover skillet with lid and let simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Test potatoes to see if they are cooked through. Depending on the size of the skillet used, additional cook time may be needed.

Crock Pot Preparation:

If you plan to allow this to cook all day, you can add all ingredients to the crock pot and allow to cook on low for several hours. It will be completely cooked after 3 hours and the potatoes and carrots will be falling apart at that point, but the dish will still taste fabulous.

When making this in the crock pot, the best way to do it is to add the meat and all ingredients except potatoes, carrots and any additional vegetables. Cook on low for 3-4 hours, then add potatoes, carrots and any additional vegetables you prefer. You’ll also likely need an additional 1/2 – 1 cup of water, as the liquid has probably mostly evaporated during the cooking of the meat. Allow to cook another 1.5 – 2 hours on low until potatoes are tender.
