Cut potatoes. This particular batch was cooked yesterday. Cut the onions into small chunks. Two handfuls of sauerkraut are set aside to be added when you flip the steak
A piece of potato is placed in pan so you know when oil is ready for rest of potatoes. When you place the steak in the oven, put the onions on the potatoes. Reminder: add sauerkraut after you flip the steak.
