CTBF- Steak with Mustard Butter and French Fries

CTBF- Steak with Mustard Butter and French Fries.
This was an easy dish to make, but it required time for preparation.   
I am not a lover of big steaks, so I chose to use steak tips.
I prepped the tips with the spices and let them sit in the refrigerator for one hour. While the steak tips were marinating, I prepped the French Fries.

I loved hearing how French Fries were started by the Belgians (something that was way back in my memory bank) and how the Americans do not like deep fryers. I do have to admit, I have a deep fryer tucked away- but I did not pull it out for the fries. I baked them in the oven as David did and they came out very crispy and flavorful. I have always loved rosemary fries, but enjoyed adding in the thyme for additional flavor.
While they were cooking, I prepped some grilled asparagus to round out the meal.
The mustard butter was delicious and easy to prep- I just wish I had one of my mother’s butter molds for these.

I then grilled the steak tips in a grill pan ( the outdoor grill is all covered up and hibernating after being covered with snow) and I was surprised how nice it turned out. I do not typically like a pan fried steak- but doing it over high heat made the tips stay tender
This was a very tasty Saturday night meal and enjoyed by all!!

  1. Looks great, Lisa! I love when techniques work out so much better than we expect, especially so we can enjoy something like steak outside of grilling season. šŸ™‚

    Nice idea with the steak tips.
    My big beef with fryers (pun intended) is my fear of grease burns – which is probably a carryover from my days at working at a fast food restaurant and that I am still carrying scars from that time 20+ years later šŸ™‚

    An old-fashioned butter mold would be wonderful for this purpose! Glad you enjoyed the recipe with steak tips.

    Looks delicious! Great idea to serve it with asparagus; it definitely needed something green to go alongside.
