Steak and Baked Potato

Meat and potatoes are some of the quickest and easiest foods to prep. Pick out your favorite cut of steak and pair it with a russet potato. Some people like to marinate their steak, but purists typically go with a little salt and pepper rub. Garlic, olive oil and rosemary are also nice additions to a good rub. From there, whether you grill it, sear it or bake it is up to you.

Potatoes are about as quick and easy as it gets: Just turn your oven on 400 degrees Fahrenheit and place your potato on the rack. If you have a minute, rub the potato in olive oil or butter and sprinkle some seat salt or garlic salt on the skin. This will ensure a crispy, golden brown outer crust.
