Perfectly cooked steak fries are the best. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside...delicious. These steak fries take on a summer flare with a hefty coating of citrusy lime zest and cilantro, with just a touch of spice. This recipe has become my favorite, I prefer it by a long shot over classic white potato steak fries.
