Steak Frites

Submitted by: PARADISE131

Introduction

I saw a not as healthy version of Steak Frites, the French dish, on America's Test Kitchen. I decided to make a healthier version by skipping the butter, choosing top round steak over ribeye steak, grilling instead of frying, dressing the greens with red wine vinegar instead of regular salad dressing, using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for more fiber and nutrients, and baking with parchment paper and cinnamon instead of frying with peanut oil and cornstarch.

Ingredients

    4 small sweet potatoes, without salt, peeled
    8 cups prewashed mixed baby greens
    2 tsp ground cinnamon
    32 oz raw beef top round steak
    1/2 cup red wine vinegar
    1 tsp sea salt
    1 tsp ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F. Place a sheet of parchment paper in a baking pan. Slice the sweet potatoes into slices, place them in the pan on the sheet, and sprinkle the fries with cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes at 400F. In the meantime, focus on the steak. On a cutting board, sprinkle the salt and pepper on both of the sides of the meat and pound the salt and pepper into both sides of the meat with a meat mallet. Grill the steak for 20-25 minutes total or until medium rare, turning once halfway through the cooking process. In the meantime, toss the greens with the vinegar and check on the fries. When the steak is medium rare when tested with a meat thermometer, the greens are tossed, and the fries are crispy, slice the steak thinly vertically across the grain and divide the food into four servings and serve.
