Bake the Fries

Carefully flip fries. Bake again until golden brown, 12-14 minutes.

While fries bake, prepare ingredients.
Prepare Ingredients and Toast Buns
Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ¼" strips.
Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly.
Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add buns to hot pan cut-sides down and toast until lightly browned, 30-60 seconds.
Remove buns from pan. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Start the Filling
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, bell pepper, and shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.
Finish the Filling
Add steak strips and cook undisturbed until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes.
