Not quite Indiana Style … is probably what you are thinking … but … YUM!
I had to kick it up a notch.
It is the Super Bowl!
I have to laugh because my friend from Indiana says … Meat and Potatoes … no spice … that is what we eat in Indiana. Well, when you are going plate to plate against New Orleans Cajun spice you gotta’ get in the game!
Shredded potatoes seasoned with sea salt, black pepper, chili peppers, thyme, oregano and garlic. Use some Gluten Free bread crumbs to help it stick together. Heat up the pan to medium – and add olive oil. Grab a fistful of seasoned potatoes, smash it together like a cake and carefully place rounds of potato pancakes in the pan. Cover for a few minutes, gently turn over.
Saute some onions, I used red onions. Cook the steak – I used Sirloin – all over medium heat. Take off the heat and let it rest for a few minutes.
Place the potato cakes on your plate, top with sliced steak and sauteed red onions and add some Spicy Ketchup to a small sauce bowl. I found the Ketchup at Williams-Sonoma. It is a really great infusion of cumin, clove, cayenne and tomato.
