Embark on a culinary journey that’ll take you through the creation of a mouth-watering platter, which strikes the perfect balance between crispy, cheesy, meaty, and flavorful. With each bite, experience the lusciousness of perfectly cooked steak slices combined with the gooey goodness of cheese sauce atop a bed of crispy fries. This isn’t just a dish; it’s a symphony of flavors and textures that resonate on your palate.
Chilled and Thinly Sliced Steak
Begin by placing the steak in the freezer for approximately 45 minutes, ensuring it attains a firm texture.
Once adequately chilled, meticulously slice the steak into fine 1/8″ strips. Emphasize on achieving razor-thin slices for that melt-in-the-mouth experience.
Drizzle the steak slices with a tablespoon of oil, ensuring they’re well-coated. Set aside for the flavors to meld.
Crispy Fries Preparation
Strictly follow the instructions on the fries package for optimal crispiness. Once cooked, retain their warmth.
Luxurious Cheese Sauce
In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter. Allow it to bubble slightly.
Once the butter achieves a gentle simmer, integrate the flour, stirring until it attains a light brown hue.
Gradually pour in the warm milk while stirring continuously. This should create a thick sauce after 4-5 minutes of cooking.
Switch off the heat and gently fold in the cubed cheese, ensuring it seamlessly melts into the sauce.
Place the sauce on a minimal heat setting, stirring occasionally, to achieve a smooth, velvety consistency. Retain its warmth.
