Step 1: Prepping Frites!

Tip #1 Never over season a good cut of beef!

First start by heating up the peanut oil preferably in a deep fryer up to 320 F. Next Rinse and peel potatoes.

Using a vegetable slicer, evenly slice potatoes into whichever cut you desire. I like thin shoestring fries. Place fries into a bowl and rinse with cold water and drain. Place into freezer until ready to fry.

Step 2: Prepping Sirloins

Tip #2 Cold potatoes make for crispier fries!

Next season the sirloin steaks on each side with sea salt, black pepper, and thyme.

Heat a medium skillet and melt butter with chopped dried red peppers, and a stalk of basil for fragrance. Place on to medium high heat and set steak in pan.

Step 3: Perfect Sear

Tip #3 Make sure you hear the steak sizzle! Always place meat in a preheated pan!

While frying on one side using a spoon baste the sirloin until it is ready to flip. For medium rare about 3 minutes on each side.

While steak is frying drop the french fries into the deep fryer. Fry until golden brown, drain oil, and toss fries in sea salt, Parmesan cheese and a light sprinkling of thyme.

When steak is done remove from skillet and let it rest for about 5 minutes. Plate and serve steak with a nice garlic basil compound butter.
