Steak Frites—Belgian Spiced Ribeye with Blue Cheese Yogurt Sauce and Sweet Potato Fries

Melt-in-your-mouth ribeye steak with blue cheese yogurt sauce and crispy, paprika-roasted sweet potato fries, an absolutely delicious meal requiring hardly any effort! Winner winner, steak and fries dinner!

This recipe came from what started out as an absolute disaster. After a very long day, I came home to a totally defrosted freezer loaded down with steaks and what was left of the half cow we bought a few months prior. After cleaning up the mess, I immediately started thinking about what I could do with all the beef without having to throw it out. I browned a good bit of it to re-freeze and use for other recipes, and then I needed to come up with an easy meal to use the steaks—one that required very little thinking or effort because we were pretty tired after the freezer incident. So, I grabbed a few sweet potatoes and decided we’d have steak frites for supper. All I know is it was the perfect meal for such a long day, and we ate every single bite!

I’m a big fan of black and blue: blue cheese on burgers, blue cheese on salads…really, I’ll just take the blue cheese by itself or eat it with a handful of berries. I love it! But, not everyone feels this way, and that’s ok!! If you’re not a fan of blue cheese, you can skip the yogurt sauce and enjoy this super yummy version of steak frites without it. Toss the fries with a little honey instead, and voila!
