Apurva is a fashion and food enthusiast. She chose fashion as her career and food as her passion. She is greatly fond of trying out new cuisines at different places and making them at home, in her own style. She also loves to seek and learn new things about the food industry constantly. So, here she is, to share her easy-peasy ways of cooking.

There’s one snack that you can never say no to. It’s the potato fries. Today, we shall learn about making the Steak Fries in our kitchens. Similar to French Fries, Steak Fries are just potato wedges that are roasted to attain the desired crispiness. Steak Fries are thicker than the French fries and can be had as a side dish with burgers, wraps, dips, guacamole, salsa, etc. They serve as the chips in “Fish and Chips.” Steak Fries would go amazing with Cheese Sauce too.

I prefer cooking Steak Fries in the evening when the whole family sits in the living area, crunching on the fries and chit-chatting. It’s our favourite evening snack. The crisp outer with the mushy, hot interior is just delish! I end up in the kitchen cooking batches after batches of fries while munching onto mine.

I believe that roasting the potato makes the interior much creamier than frying it. And the bonus is that it’s less oily too. So, be careful not to over-roast the potato wedges and keep them golden brown. What a satisfying snack it makes!

So, what are we waiting for? I am quickly going to share the list of ingredients you’d require. The list is going to be teeny-weeny. Check out the table below.

Steak Fries Recipe

Steak Fries recipe
  1. Cut the potatoes into wedges of proper size (neither too thick nor too thin). I cut down the middle of the potato length-wise and then cut each half into four pieces length-wise. I prefer to keep the skin of the potato; you may take it off.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Celsius and glaze the baking pan with cooking spray.
  3. Pro tip: microwave the potato wedges for 5 minutes before roasting. 
  4. Now, add olive oil to the baking pan (brush it all over) and scatter the potato wedges on it. Brush a little olive oil on top of the wedges.
  5. Season the wedges with salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika (or any other seasoning of your choice) and roast for 30 minutes.
  6. Now, take them out, flip them and roast for another 10 minutes.
  7. Check on the fries to make sure they don’t burn. And, they’re ready! You may sprinkle in more salt, if needed, before serving.
