Ba de de da de de da de de da de de da de de da… Bonanza! Or Gunsmoke (don't know the theme). Or any of those other Western TV shows that existed far, far before we were born. You'll be transported to a cowboy life, televised or not, when you take a bite of this meaty good steak sandwich, with melty mozzarella and zesty green chili aioli. And if that doesn't tumble your tumbleweed, the oven fries on the side, with chile and cumin, will get you back up on that horse and riding into the sunset.

Tip: Wonder how to make fries? Slice a small piece off your tater so you have something to stand it on. Then make 1/4" slices, moving front to back and down. Those slices will be easy to cut into 1/4" fries.
