A note about serious food allergies

The 1970s wasn't just an era of gas lines and malaise. It was also the era of fondue, the make-your-own cheese sauce that people made by the light of a lava lamp, while listening to disco. Nothing so dated happening here, with meaty steak strips and funky blue cheese making their own harmony on a delicious pretzel bun. Groovy. Tip: Getting hip to the sticks: halve your potato, then place cut side down. Slice lengthwise into 1/4" slices, then stack half the potato slices and cut again to 1/4" slices.

Customize It Instructions

  • If using flank steak, follow same instructions as steak strips.

  • If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Place on sandwich

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut potatoes into 1/2" fries.

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" rounds.

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry.

  2. 2

    Bake the Fries

    Place potato sticks on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, seasoning rub, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 28-30 minutes, gently flipping halfway through.

    While potatoes bake, caramelize onions.

  3. 3

    Caramelize the Onions

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add onion and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Cover, and cook undisturbed until starting to soften, 5 minutes.

    Uncover, and stir occasionally until onion is lightly caramelized, 10-15 minutes.

    If pan becomes dry, add water 1 Tbsp. at a time.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steak Strips and Sauce

    After onions have cooked 5 minutes, place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add steak strips to hot pan and stir occasionally until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer steak strips to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

    Add Alfredo sauce and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly, 1-2 minutes.

    Once simmering, remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Toast Buns and Finish Dish

    Place buns cut side down directly on rack in hot oven and bake until warm and lightly toasted, 3-4 minutes.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing sauce on bottom bun and topping with tomatoes, steak strips, caramelized onion, blue cheese (to taste), and top bun. Bon appétit!
