  • Sprinkle the steak with ½ tsp of the salt and the pepper and set aside.

For the latkes:

  • Use a box grater or food processor to grate the butternut squash and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the egg, remaining salt, garlic powder, flour, and any additional spices if desired.
  • Thinly slice the onion and add the onion and grated squash to the egg mixture, mixing well with your hands.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat.
  • Form the squash mixture into hamburger sized patties and cook in the preheated skillet for about 5 minutes per side or until browned.
  • When the latkes are done, put them on a baking sheet and keep them warm in oven.

For the steak:

  • Scrape out the skillet and cook the steak 3-4 minutes per side until desired doneness. When almost done, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and let it reduce for 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.


You can use sweet potato instead of squash if you'd like.
I like to serve the steak and latkes with a leafy green salad or steamed broccoli to round out the meal.
