Meat. It's what's for dinner. But this time, not in a classic steak-and-sauce combination, or some sort of pasta or flatbread. Dinner tonight is a meaty, marvelous steak sandwich, with crunchy, peppy pickled vegetables bringing out the best of contrasts. What else does this sandwich have? Cheese, which we know you love. Meat. Cheese. Dinner. Tip: Get hip to the sticks! The best way to make fries is to halve your potato, then place cut side down. Slice lengthwise into 1/2" slices, then stack half the potato slices and cut again to 1/2" slices.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

If using 20 oz. steak strips, follow same instructions, seasoning with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper, and working in batches if necessary, cooking until steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Bake the Oven Fries
Cut potatoes into ½" fries. Place a large non-stick pan over high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add potatoes to hot pan and stir occasionally until starting to brown, 4-5 minutes.
Transfer potatoes to prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Toss potatoes with seasoning blend and a pinch of pepper.
Spread into a single layer. Bake in hot oven until golden brown, 12-14 minutes.
While potatoes bake, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Coarsely chop banana peppers.
Peel and halve shallot. Slice halves into thin strips.
Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry.
Make the Pickled Vegetables
Combine banana peppers, shallot, and white wine vinegar in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high, 30 seconds.
Stir, then set aside.
Cook the Steak Strips
Return pan used to cook potatoes to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add steak strips to hot pan. Stir occasionally until browned and steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.
Stir in demi-glace and 2 Tbsp. water. Cook until liquid is slightly reduced, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Finish the Dish
Carefully, move fries to one side of baking sheet and gently flip.
Halve pretzel buns, if necessary. Place buns on empty side of sheet. Spread mayonnaise on bottom buns, and top with steak strips and cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, 4-5 minutes.
