So here's the grilled New York steak and skinny oven fries we had for dinner instead.
oven fries, only I sliced them a lot thinner. The kids loved them!
Skinny Oven Fries
- 2 large russet potatoes (longer ones work well for this), scrubbed and washed
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Slice the potatoes lengthwise into long skinny strips, about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. (If it is too early to put them in the oven, you may soak them in a bowl of warm water while you are preparing the rest of your meal.)
Drain the potatoes and dry well with a paper towel. Dry your bowl out. Put the potatoes back in the bowl and toss to coat with olive oil and a light sprinkling of salt and pepper. Spread out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat.
When oven reaches 425 degrees, place the fries into the oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until they are cooked through and just starting to brown.
