How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 500°.

Step 2

To prepare frites, heat a large baking sheet in oven for 5 minutes. Combine potatoes, 1 tablespoon oil, and hot sauce in a large bowl. Add 3/4 teaspoon thyme and garlic salt; toss to combine. Remove preheated pan from oven. Coat pan with cooking spray. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on prepared pan. Bake at 500° for 40 minutes or until crisp, turning once after 20 minutes. Remove from oven; cover and keep warm.

Step 3

Preheat broiler.

Step 4

To prepare steak, let steak stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt and next 8 ingredients (through 1/8 teaspoon black pepper); sprinkle both sides of steak with spice blend. Place steak on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

Step 5

To prepare kale, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and minced garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add kale and 1/4 cup water; cover and cook 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and remaining ingredients. Arrange 1 cup kale and 3 ounces steak on each of 4 plates; divide frites evenly among servings.

Loved the frites.Seasoning was spot on. Very flavorful. As with the other reviewers I burnt some of them, cooking for 15 minutes and then turning and cooking another 10 minutes would have made mine perfect.

I loved this recipe but as the reviewer before me stated that you must keep an eye on the Frites as they cooked quicker than thought. I used a mandoline than a knife.

The steak was a little tough to me, but the seasoning was on the money. I think next time I'll either grill or pan sear the steak. Fries were good, be careful not to overbake; mines were done in 1/2 the time recipe stated. Kale also had good flavor.
