My mother used to make steak frites every Saturday for lunch. I carry on the family tradition but on Sundays. I choose a tender steak (sirloin for example) and Bintje potatoes to make the chips. If you can't find Bintje, King Edward, Maris Piper and Desirée are all great for chips. The electric deep fat fryer I used has a tilted basket so the chips have less fat. I also use a salt flavoured with fennel seeds, it goes very well with the chips.
