Once in while, I enjoy making oven steak fries. They are potatoes cut into wedges, topped with a blend of herbs and olive oil, then baked in the oven until they are crispy golden brown. They are usually served with a steak, but my family loves eating them alone with some of their favorite dipping sauces. This is also a great idea for an appetizer on game-nights!
You can serve these steak fries with dipping sauces like ranch, honey-mustard and ketchup.
This is an effortless recipe, taking only 5 minutes to prepare. No peeling is required here, only a good rinse or even a scrub with each potato before slicing it into wedges and leaving the skins on. Then sprinkle with a mixture of Herbs de Provence, garlic powder, olive oil, and bake!
If you need to guess how many potatoes you will need for a game-night or for dinner,
I like to estimate one large potato per person, or 2 medium-size potatoes per person. If you're not totally sure, add an extra potato or two. It's best to be safe and have a little extra, (trust me) they will disappear!
Don't worry if you have left-overs. We love adding them to our morning scrambled eggs to make potato omelets for breakfast. YUM!
Steak Fries originally came about when restaurants made them into a thicker cut of potato fries and served them on the side of steak dishes. They were so good next to a steak, they became popularly known as "steak fries."
Try these oven steak fries. Your family and friends will love them too! They are a healthier version and fun-to-eat, no matter how you choose to serve them!
Here's a TASTY Tip!: Try an additional flavor for these Oven Steak Fries! Just before you serve them sprinkle with some grated Parmesan cheese on top and lightly drizzle with Truffle Oil. You'll have "Parmesan-Truffle Oil Steak Fries!!"
