Skillet Beef and Potatoes

My Mother-in-law just sent me some new cookbooks!  Cookbooks are my own personal type of heroin.  I will never be able to have enough cookbooks :D  Thank you SO much, Paula!  So tonight's selection is from Taste of Home Simple and Delicious circa 2007, page39:

3 medium potatoes, halved and cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
2 teaspoons garlic pepper blend
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
Place potatoes, water and salt in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 6-10 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain.
Season beef with pepper blend. In a large skillet, stir-fry beef and onion in 2 tablespoons oil for 5 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Meanwhile, in another skillet, stir-fry potatoes in remaining oil for 5 minutes or until browned. Stir in beef mixture. Sprinkle with rosemary. Yield: 4 servings.

Nutritional Analysis: 1-1/2 cups equals 320 calories, 16 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 63 mg cholesterol, 487 mg sodium, 20 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 23 g protein

Substitutions: We halved the recipe.  We only used a 4oz steak instead a half pound. Also, I wasn't sure what they meant by "Garlic Pepper Seasoning" so we used garlic powder and black pepper.  We went a little heavy with the pepper.  Looking back, I should have used Nature's Seasoning. Other than that, the meal was delicious!
