Steak frites for the weekend

Steak frites for the weekend

The classic bistro/brasserie dish, steak-frites , steak and fries, traditionally feature thick-cut “steak fries” (as opposed to thinner “Frenched” or shoestring fries).

The dimensions, however, don’t really matter: the goodness is in the simplicity of grilled and slightly charred protein — a ribeye nicely marbled — with accompanying starch from the potato. The bit of  bĂ©arnaise sauce that might also appear is added deliciousness.
