Ok seriously now, I know that I’ve been OD-ing on red meat. But I am man. Man like beef. Red meat good. Real good. For those lonely nights when you’re all alone and need some comfort food, this will totally satisfy you. Man or Woman. Better than shlepping to La Marais or Clubhouse or Prime Grill. Way better. And way cheaper.
1 12 oz steak, defrosted
1 large potato, sliced in to half circles
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Cut out any excess fat from the steak and add it to a preheated frying pan with 1-2 tbsp olive or vegetable oil depending on how much fat you remove from the steak. Render the fat with a pinch of salt so that it flavors the oil.
Once the fat has browned remove it from the pan and fry your potatoes. Season them with a little salt, and cook until browned, about 7-10 minutes. Be sure to flip them over.
Pat the steak dry with paper towels. Season both sides with the salt, pepper, and paprika. Once the potatoes are done, remove them onto a plate lined with paper towel, and place the steak inside the skillet. For medium/rare, you want the pan screaming hot and cook the steak for ~2 min per side.
Transfer the fries to a clean plate, and place the steak on the side once its cooked. Serve with ketchup or your favorite condiment.
