Steak Frite Bites

With a thin piece of steak wrapped around a handful of french fries, steak frites just became finger food.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 cups assorted mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Madeira wine
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 to 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parsley, finely chopped for garnish

Steps

  1. In the same cast-iron skillet used to cook the steak, add butter and shallots. Cook shallots for a few minutes until translucent. Next, add the mushrooms and cook for a few more minutes.
  2. Deglaze pan with Madeira and cook until reduced by half. Add cornstarch, beef stock and tomato paste. Cook until sauce is glossy and thickens slightly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add parsley. Dip steak frite bites in sauce. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 russet potatoes, cleaned, dried and cut into long, thin fries
  • 1 flank steak (1 to 2 pounds)
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Vegetable oil

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss potato slices with a drizzle of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of salt. Place potatoes in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, turning the fries periodically to insure even browning.
  3. Season steak with salt and pepper. Allow flank steak to sit at room temperature for at least 10 minutes before cooking.
  4. Preheat a cast-iron skillet until smoking hot. Add a small drizzle of vegetable oil. Place steak in skillet and don’t move it until time to flip. Cook 5 to 6 minutes per side.
  5. Let meat rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain into long, thin strips. Wrap slices of meat around a few french fries and secure with a toothpick.
