Why are they called Steak Fries?
Steak fries, also known as steakhouse fries or chunky chips, are a type of thick-cut fried potato. They are named for their similarities to steak, which is a thick cut of meat.
Steak fries are usually made from russet potatoes, which are a type of starchy potato that is low in moisture and high in starch. This makes them ideal for frying, as they become crispy on the outside while remaining fluffy on the inside.
Steak fries are typically served alongside steak or other grilled meats, but they can also be enjoyed as a standalone side dish.
Whatever way you enjoy them, steak fries are a delicious way to add some extra crunch to your meal.

Roasting is a cooking method that uses dry heat to cook food. This can be done in an oven or over an open fire.
When roasting potatoes, the goal is to cook them until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
The high heat of roasting helps to achieve this by causing the potatoes’ cell walls to break down, resulting in a crispy exterior.
In addition, roasting helps to caramelize the natural sugars in the potatoes, giving them a sweet and nutty flavor.
Overall, roasting is an ideal cooking method for potatoes because it brings out their natural flavor and results in a crispy texture.
