  1. 1

    Bake the Frites

    Cut potatoes into ½" fries (or frites) and pat dry. Place frites on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, garlic 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, 35-37 minutes, tossing frites halfway through.
    While frites bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop almonds. Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add steaks to hot pan and cook until browned and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. [CHECKING LOWER TIME W/FSQA] Transfer steaks to a plate and tent with foil. Rest at least 3 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve. While steaks rest, make red wine reduction.

  4. 4

    Make the Red Wine Reduction

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-low. Add butter to hot pan and swirl occasionally until melted, 1-2 minutes. Add flour and stir constantly until butter and flour form a golden brown paste, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and, while stirring butter-flour paste, gradually pour in Marsala until completely combined. Then stir in ¼ cup water. Return pan to medium-low heat and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in a pinch of salt and pepper.

  5. 5

    Make Salad and Finish Dish

    In a mixing bowl, toss or gently combine spring mix, vinaigrette, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping steak with red wine reduction and garnishing salad with Parmesan and almonds. Bon appétit!
