“Steak frites,” or steak with french fries, is classic French bistro fare. Tonight’s steaks get another layer of rich flavor from garlic butter, spooned over them as they cook. Creamy mustard sauce is a perfect match for the rich steaks and hearty oven-roasted fries, while a simple salad adds refreshing contrast. (You may receive crisp romaine or tender butter lettuce.)

Prepare & roast the potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick sticks. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast, flipping halfway through, 22 to 24 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the potatoes roast, peel and finely chop the garlic. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; roughly chop the leaves. Thinly slice the chives.

4 Cook the steaks & make the garlic butter:

While the potatoes continue to roast, pat the steaks dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks and cook 4 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and butter. Cook, frequently spooning the butter over the steaks, 1 to 2 minutes for medium-rare, or until the steaks are browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Transfer the cooked steaks to a cutting board. Let rest for at least 5 minutes. Transfer the garlic butter to a bowl.
