The best part about these yummy steak fries is that they are healthier than a regular “fried” french fry. Only one tablespoon of oil is used in this recipe. And not only are these fries healthier, they are so much easier to make.
Serve steak fries with your favorite dipping sauces. My husband and I make these baked fries almost every week and usually serve them with equal parts mayo and ketchup mixed. This is has been my go-to dipping sauce since I was a kid! It’s so creamy and delicious.
These fries make an excellent appetizer or side dish paired with burgers, chicken, sandwiches and more! I will link some of my favorite main courses to serve with these fries for you below.
You want the oven to be really hot when making these fries because it will ensure a light crunch on the outside with a soft center. To me, that is the best kind of fry. My hubby on the other hand likes them a little crunchier. If that’s you, simply leave the fries in a few minutes longer.
Ingredients you need for this recipe:
- Russet Potatoes – About three medium sized potatoes, peeled.
- Oil – I use canola or vegetable oil. Olive oil can tend to be heavy.
- Salt – I use sea salt for these fries but you can use whatever salt you have on hand.
- Garlic Powder – You can skip garlic powder if you’d like but it adds a delicious flavor to the fries.
- Onion Powder – You can also skip onion powder but I always use it when making these fries.

How to make homemade oven steak fries:
Cut peeled potatoes in half longways. Lay potato flat on the cutting board and cut potatoes 1/4″-1/2″ thick. You may need to cut those fries in half again depending on how big your potatoes are.

In the meantime, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Drain potatoes and pat dry. Add oil, garlic powder, onion powder and salt to the bowl of potatoes. Toss to fully coat.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread potatoes on sheet and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Then, gently flip potatoes over and bake another 15 minutes.
When done, potatoes with be slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Serve with your favorite fry sauce or ketchup.
