Here is another potato recipe that makes a simple and versatile side dish. Steak fries are great because they are easier to make than real fries and you can eat them with your fingers. They also have a great combination of crispiness and creaminess. Really, you can’t go wrong! I served mine with crab cakes.
Pre-heat your oven to 450ºF. Cut one baking potato per person into 8 wedges. It’s easy to make even wedges if you continue cutting the potato in half lengthwise until you end up with 8 pieces. Toss them with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and lay them out on a baking sheet. Your baking sheet should be well-greased so your potatoes don’t stick. Put them into the oven and bake them for 30 minutes, flipping the fries over at the 15 minute mark. The fries are less prone to breaking if you lift the potatoes from their thicker, skinned sides. When the steak fries come out of the oven, season them with freshly chopped herbs or anything else like parmesan cheese. I’d say these are like KFC fries, but, well… they don’t make my mouth feel funny.
