    The dish pictured was prepared on a night when hubby was gone hunting, I had work to do and no one to dine with so I hauled myself off to the store and prepared the feast you see before you.

    Steak frites is a French inspired dish layering crispy French fries, a juicy steak and maitre d’hotel butter. Served at brasseries throughout Europe, it is typically just these simple ingredients, however I’ve added Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms and Onions. 

    Simple Sautéed Garlic Mushrooms and Onions- a simple recipe that will add pizzazz to any meal, trust me, I make it once a week!

    I mean you have to have vegetables, right? It is a rich dish, both in heritage and in flavor, perfect for celebrating a special occasion or a dinner party.

    One important element is to make sure to get your fries super crispy to prevent them from getting soggy from steak juice prematurely. The whole point is to let them soak up the juices and butter from the steak.

    I pan fry mine on the stove top with a blended oil, due to the smoke point being high, but you can also bake them in the oven if you wish to cut calories or just don’t feel comfortable frying. You can get even more creative by using home fries, tater tots or frozen hash browns made in the toaster.

    I generally make my Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms and Garlic ahead of time and then just heat time in the same skillet I cook the steak while it rests. Maitre d’hotel butter can also be made ahead of time, I generally keep this as a staple in my refrigerator anyhow. Compound butter for the win!

    Easy, French compound butter for sauteing vegetables, finishing steaks or spreading on bread.

    Instructions
    1. Season strip steaks with Steakhouse Steak Rub and set aside.
    2. In high sided sauce pan or skillet, cook shoe string French fries according to package directions. Place on a paper towel lined baking sheet in a warm oven while you prepare the remaining pieces.
    3. In a cast iron pan or heavy skillet, melt butter over high heat. Make sure you turn on the vent or have proper ventilation.
    4. Add seasoned steaks, cooking for 2-3 minutes on each side, longer if you like a medium-well done steak. This will also be highly dependent on the thickness of your steaks. Remove and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes.
    5. To plate, place shoe string fries on the plate, topped with your juicy steak and 1 tablespoon cold maitre d'hotel butter and 1/2 cup sauteed garlic mushrooms and garlic. Enjoy!
