Preheat oven to 400°F. When the oven reaches 400°F, preheat broiler and set the rack 6-7 inches from the flame.
In a medium-size saucepot, cover potatoes with cold water. Bring up to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until fork-tender. Drain and set aside.
While the potatoes are cooking, put the steak on a broiler pan, drizzle with 1 tablespoon EVOO and season with salt and ground black pepper. Broil for 15 minutes, turning once halfway through. Remove meat from the broiler and allow it to rest for 5 minutes, tented with a piece of aluminum foil.
