Treat your family to a steak house dinner at home. Frozen steak fries get a cheesy crumb coating for a dressed up side to the skillet-cooked steaks that are draped with savory mushroom and onion gravy.

Skirt Steak With Mushroom Sauce And Seasoned Fries

Recipe from Family Circle
Servings: Makes 6 servings.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 45 mins

  • Steak Fries:
  • 1 package (28 ounces) frozen steak fries (not thawed)
  • 3 tablespoons packaged seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 egg whites, slightly beaten
  • Steak:
  • 2 skirt steaks (2 pounds total)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot chili powder
  • Mushroom Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium-size onion, chopped
  • 1 package (8 ounces) sliced white mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • Pinch salt

Fries: Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat 1 large or 2 small baking sheets with cooking spray. Place fries in large bowl. In small bowl, mix crumbs, Parmesan and cayenne. Add egg whites to fries; sprinkle with seasoning mixture; toss. Spread on prepared baking sheet(s).

Bake in 450 degree F oven 15 to 20 minutes or follow package directions.

Steak: Meanwhile, spread the skirt steaks on a large cutting board. Slice each steak in thirds, for 6 steaks total, each about 8 x 3-1/2 inches. Season steaks on both sides with the salt, pepper and chili powder.

Heat 12-inch skillet (not nonstick) over medium-high heat. Add 3 steaks; sear 3 minutes. Turn over; cook 3 minutes or until 145 degrees F for medium-rare. Transfer steaks to platter; tent with foil. Repeat with remaining 3 steaks. Transfer to a large platter. Keep warm.

Sauce: Reduce the heat to medium. Add the butter to the skillet. Add onion; saute for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; saute 3 minutes. Stir in Worcestershire sauce. Sprinkle evenly with flour. Whisk in beef broth until well blended. Simmer 2 minutes or until thickened. Season with salt; remove from heat. Serve mushroom sauce with steak and fries. Makes 6 servings.
