  1. Put the potatoes in a small saucepan, cover with water, and add a generous amount of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 8 minutes until potatoes are beginning to be tender but aren’t done cooking.
  2. While the potatoes cook, heat a skillet (preferably cast iron) over high heat. While it warms, season the beef with salt and pepper. Add 1 tbs. of the oil and the beef to the hot pan; turn the heat down to medium-high. Cook for 1 minute without touching. Flip the beef and brown a second side for 1 minute longer. The beef should be nicely browned but very rare. Remove beef to a plate (you'll be putting it back in the pan to finish cooking in a bit).
  3. Add the remaining tbs. oil, then the onion, garlic, squash, and Cajun seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veg are softened and beginning to brown.
  4. The potatoes should be ready by now. Drain them well. Add the butter to the pan and add the potatoes. Cook for another 10 minutes or so, stirring now and then, until everything is nicely caramelized. Add the beef back in and cook for 1-2 minutes longer, until the beef is heated through and cooked to your liking.
  5. Serve hot with a sprinkling of fresh parsley or chives, or grated parmesan, or a dollop of sour cream, or sour cream plus horseradish ….
