I have to confess that French fries are one of my favorite foods. The Weekend Chef most recently created this recipe to fulfill my French fry cravings It has all the flavors of a cheesesteak but eaten on a pile of fries, rather than a roll. Topped with a homemade cheddar beer sauce, this dinner was delicious! The kids enjoyed this just as much as we did!
Philly Cheesesteak Fries
Recipe from the Weekend Chef @ NY Foodie Family
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
6-8 white mushrooms, sliced
24 oz steak (we used thin sirloin)
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar
8 oz beer (we used Yuengling lager)
1/2 cup flour
2 Tablespoons butter
4 servings of frozen French fries, prepared per directions on package
In a medium pan over low heat, add the olive oil. Cook the pepper, onion, and mushrooms until softened, approximately 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat and mix in the flour. Cook 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the beer and cook until thickened. Remove from heat and mix in cheese until fully melted. Season liberally with pepper. Cook the steak(s) to your desired doneness and allow to rest. Slice the steak thinly. To serve, plate the fries and top with the vegetable mixture, steak and cheese sauce.
