Best-Ever Steak Fries

These fries are so simple, yet so utterly perfect. Serve with ketchup or, for a real treat, fresh mayonnaise.

  • ingredients
  • 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and cut into spears as pictured (leave the skin intact) $2
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more if necessary Pantry
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
Total Cost of Ingredients $2

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, cook potatoes for 4-5 minutes on one side, or until a golden-brown crust forms. Use tongs to flip and cook on the other side. Repeat until all potatoes have been browned on both sides, adding more oil if necessary.

Spread browned potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until potatoes are soft on the inside and very crisp on the outside. Toss with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

Serves 4.

Yah, been cooking potatoes this way for decades. Cheap, easy, and satisfying. You can also drain off some of the oil once the potatoes are browned, and continue to cook them right on the stove. Takes more attention than in the oven, though, as you have to stir and check the potatoes frequently. Can also throw in diced onions and green peppers, as desired, for a nice stir fry of sorts.

Do you think that other type of potato like sweet potato will go well with this recipe too?

Thanks for sharing this easy recipe.
