This quick coffee-crusted steak with sauteed garlic potatoes is simple enough for a midweek dinner. Chili powder adds a little kick while the paprika gives a smoky flavor.
The garlic potatoes are first cooked in the microwave and then sauteed in the same skillet used to cook the steak, saving cleanup time. Complete the meal with a washed, ready-to-eat salad and your favorite dressing.
