2 Leahy’s Angus Beef NY Strip Steak (cut at 1.25 – 1.5″ thick)

4 Russet Potatoes

Vegetable Oil

Kosher Salt (we recommend Diamond Crystal brand)

Black Pepper


Generously season all sides of your New York Strip steaks with kosher salt and let them sit at room temperature on a wire rack over a baking sheet while you are preparing the potatoes. This is the process of dry brining, and if you have more time, you can start this process earlier! Read this blog post for more details.

Peel the potatoes, then square off the ends and cut into about 1/4″ strips. Put all of the strips into a colander, and rinse them off with cold water as you go. After rinsing, put them into a large bowl filled with cold water and let them sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This will remove excess starch.

After preparing the potatoes, season the steaks with black pepper or your favorite salt free steak seasoning. Place the steaks into an oven preheated to 275ºF and cook for about 25 minutes until they reach 115ºF. We recommend using a remote digital meat thermometer to monitor temperature from outside the oven – cook to temperature, not time!


When the steak reaches temperature, remove from the oven. Pour 2 tbsp. vegetable oil into a large cast iron skillet and heat to high heat. When the oil is hot, add the steaks and sear for 2-3 minutes per side. I prefer only flipping once, but you can flip frequently if you like. Make sure you sear the fat caps of the steaks as well. When the steaks are seared, remove from the pan and let rest.

After 30 minutes, drain the fries and pat them dry with paper towels. Make sure they are very dry before putting them into hot oil! Pour enough vegetable oil into a large, deep bottom Dutch oven or similar cookware to cover about 2″ of the pan. Heat to 325ºF and cook the fries for 6 – 8 minutes or until they’re soft.

Remove the fries from the oil and transfer to a paper towel lined pan to drain. Turn the heat off the oil and let the fries rest for 15 minutes. Heat the oil back to 375ºF and then add the fries back to the hot oil. Cook until they are golden and crispy, about 3 more minutes. Remove from oil, season generously with salt and a pinch of black pepper.

Slice the steaks into strips and serve on a plate with a dollop of compound butter, a generous helping of hot fries, and your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy your steak frites!
