Steak-frites, French for “steak and fries”, is a popular dish with fried steak bites and crispy potatoes. Our version of steak frites is made in one skillet with juicy steak bites and French fries or garlic mashed potatoes (your choice), all smothered in garlic aioli sauce. This restaurant-style dish is a great weeknight recipe and ready in under 20 minutes.

This recipe comes together quickly with perfectly cut and portioned ribeye steak pieces. The rich, buttery flavors and tender, juicy texture of ribeye is incredible in this simple recipe.

However, you can use your favorite steak cut for this recipe. Try filet mignon tips for a mild beef flavor and tender texture or beef sirloin tips for a leaner steak cut with bold flavors.
