RIB-EYE STEAK WITH TARRAGON POTATOES

Chef Seth Warshaw, from Steakhouse Teaneck, NJ shares how to make the best homemade hearty steak and potatoes.  

Chef's Tip: What to do if I do not have a grill? 

If you do not have a grill, you can use a cast iron skillet. For anything cooked under medium, you will cook the steak on the pan and not in the oven. Season the steak with salt and pepper, add some oil to the pan and sear one side, allowing a golden crust to form. Flip the steak over, lower the heat, and finish cooking.
