Sometimes, you just want a classic steak and potatoes dinner. There's a good reason this combination has been popular for decades. The hearty, rich taste of a good cut of steak blends wonderfully with the smooth, creamy taste of potatoes.

You can substitute mashed potatoes for the red potatoes if you want. Don't throw the mashed potatoes in with the beef and pepper. Simply throw the pepper in with the beef, and follow the recipe's instructions from there. Make the mashed potatoes separately.
