My sons are meat lovers and I get so sick of making "just" a steak. I wanted something different. I found this recipe in a magazine. I thought at first it seemed like a weird and possibly "complicated" recipe and didn't know if they would even try it if I made it. However, it wowed them. It was our New Years Eve dinner right along with the Crab Legs and shrimp. While each step is easy to make, there are three things to do at once, so you have to keep that in mind as you are making it, but I promise you, you won't be sorry you tried this recipe. Your family will feel like they are in a fine dining estabishment. And even with todays prices, you can get sirloin cuts at pretty good prices and make this a dinner to remember. Shoestring frenchfries are always on sale. Your family won't be able to stop licking up the sauce with the fries. So, whether you make it for a date night with your hubby, you're having special company over, or it's a special family night dinner, you'll love having this on hand for a recipe. It's amazing.
11. Heat Oven to 450 degrees F. Bake french fries on rimmed baking sheet for 12 to 15 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
(The key here is to get everything done at the same time (french fries, steak and sauce)
2. Meanwhile, sprinkle steak with salt and pepper. Heat large skillet (I use my cast iron skillet, tried and true - make sure your skillet is one you have cooked steaks in before and you are familiar with how it will come out with your steaks on top of the stove) over medium high heat until hot. Add oil. Heat oil until hot. Cook steak for 8-10 minutes for medium rare, turning once.. Remove steak. Cover loosely with foil (this is letting it rest which lets the juices do their thing making it great.) Let it stand a full 10 minutes before thinly slicing.
3, Meanwhile, add broth, half and half and Worchester sauce to skillet. Bring to boil; boil to reduce it slightly. Remove from heat and whisk in the cheese at last minute.
4. Serve sauce over steak and accompany with fries. Dip fries in sauce.
This dish is a little three things at once, but you won't be sorry you tried it because of the raves you get from your family.
NOTE: When slicing, make sure to slice and display on a platter big enough to put fries by the side of the steak. This makes for a very pretty display. Then you can pour a little sauce on the steak and put the rest in a gravy bowl for everyone to pour on their plates. Make this a family dinner night. It's worth it.
