Kitchen Items Needed

Medium pot with lid 

Microplane or grater

Rimmed baking sheet

Medium heavy skillet (preferably cast-iron)


Large bowl

cook along



Preheat oven to 450°F with a rimmed baking sheet placed on a rack in the upper third – you want to heat the baking sheet for the fries; 

Scrub potatoes, then cut lengthwise into ¼-inch thick wedges;

Halve lettuce lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 6 wedges, discarding stem; 

Peel & finely chop shallot.

1Parboil Potatoes

Place potatoes in a medium pot with enough salted water to cover by 1 inch. Cover & bring to a boil. Uncover & cook until barely tender, 5–8 minutes. Drain & return potatoes to pot off heat.

2Roast French Fries

Toss parboiled potatoes in pot with drizzle of olive oil, generous pinch each of salt & pepper. Carefully spread into a single layer on preheated baking sheet. Roast on upper oven rack until fries are golden brown & crisp, flipping potatoes for the last 5 minutes, about 25 minutes total.

3Prepare Steaks

Pat steaks dry, then season all over with black magic rub. Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium heavy skillet (preferably cast-iron) over medium-high. Add steaks, cook until well browned and medium-rare, 3–4 minutes per side (or longer for desired doneness). Transfer to a cutting board to rest.

4 Make Pan Sauce

Add chopped shallots to same skillet, cook over medium heat, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom, until lightly browned, 1–2 minutes. Add garlic butter blend & stock blend. Cook, whisking, until sauce is emulsified & coats the back of a spoon, 1–2 minutes. Immediately, remove from heat. Season to taste with salt, pepper.

5To Serve

Thinly slice steaks, if desired. Serve steak with fries, spoon pan sauce over steaks. Layer romaine lettuce alongside, Drizzle caesar dressing over romaine wedges, then sprinkle with Parmesan. Enjoy!
