Instructions

  • 1. Cook fries according to package directions, until crispy. Season with salt immediately after cooking. Meanwhile, prepare toppings.

  • 4. Cut roast beef into 1” strips and add to same skillet with remaining oil over medium heat. Cook beef until just crisped, about 1 minute. Remove from skillet. Pour beef broth into same skillet, increase heat to high and bring to boil. Continue to boil until reduced by half. Stir in soy sauce and remove from heat.
  • 5. Arrange fries on serving plate and top with cheese sauce, beef, onions and au jus. Garnish with fresh parsley and black pepper.
