  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

3. Stir 1-1/2 teaspoons of the remaining spice blend in ketchup; rub steak with remaining spice blend. Set aside.

4. Once potatoes have roasted for 30 minutes, start steak: Coat 10-inch skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add steak; cook 3 minutes. Turn over; cook 2 minutes. Transfer to a baking pan; add to oven for 10 minutes as potatoes finish cooking. Meanwhile, add onion and 1/2 cup water to skillet; reduce heat to medium and cook 6 minutes or until softened.
