“Steak frites,” or steak with french fries, is classic French bistro fare. For tonight’s take, we’re basting our steak with sumptuous garlic butter, and serving it with hearty, oven-roasted “frites.” (The leftover garlic butter makes a delicious topping for the potatoes.) Creamy mustard sauce perfectly cuts through the richness of the steak, while a simple arugula salad dressed with Meyer lemon vinaigrette adds a peppery finish.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:
Roast the potatoes:

3 Cook the steak & make the garlic butter:

Once the potatoes have roasted for about 10 minutes, pat the steak dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steak and cook 2 to 3 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and add the garlic and butter. Cook, frequently spooning the butter over the steak, 1 to 2 minutes for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat. Leaving the garlic butter in the pan, transfer the cooked steak to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes
