The Difference Between Steak Fries and French Fries
Steak fries are thicker (typically cut into 2-inch chunks or wedges) than traditional French fries, and often cooked with the skin left on. They can either be deep-fried or roasted in the oven.
How to Season Your Steak Fries
We love the earthy herbal quality of the Italian seasoning used in this recipe, but you can easily substitute it for any number of different seasoning mixtures. For a totally different flavor profile, try using Old Bay Seasoning. Or, if you’re in the mood to kick it up a notch, swap the Italian seasoning for healthy pinch of Cajun Creole Seasoning.
A Tip for Cooking Oven Roasted Steak Fries
The key to perfect oven-roasted streak fries is making sure they are cooked evenly on both sides. To prevent them from sticking to the baking sheet (which makes it difficult to turn them), line the baking sheet with parchment paper, or try using a silicone baking mat. If you don’t already own one, it’s a worthy investment. Not only do they prevent sticking, they also reduce the risk of burning. And you can use them to roast or bake most anything, whether it’s vegetables (like steak fries) cookies, or delicate cuts of fish. Plus, they make cleaning up a breeze!
