This delicious stove top meal is perfect for a busy weeknight when you want something easy, yet worthy of a main course.

On top of all that, the combination of spices gives the potatoes its distinct yellow color and Middle Eastern flair.


  • 2 lbs flank steak
  • 2 lbs potatoes
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric


  1. Wash and pat dry the steak. Cut it into 1/2 inch squares.
  2. Heat 3 tbsp of olive oil on a skillet. Add the pieces of beef and cook them for 10 minutes over medium high heat. Toss the beef around so both sides start to brown.
  3. Add the chopped onions, sliced mushrooms, and cook everything for another 5 minutes. Add paprika, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/2 of tsp pepper, and mix everything to allow it to cook for 5 more minutes on medium low heat.
  4. While the beef is cooking, peel and cut the potatoes into 1/4 inch wedges.
  5. Add 3 tbsp of olive oil in a separate skillet and fry the potato wedges for 20 minutes over medium high heat, or until they are crisp-tender. Add 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of pepper, and turmeric. Mix everything so the spices combine with the potato wedges.
  6. Turn off the heat and serve.
