  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into ¼" sticks. Pat sticks dry. Place potato sticks on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven, 15 minutes. Carefully, flip potato sticks. Bake again until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Gently toss baked fries with half the Cajun seasoning (reserve remaining for steak strips). Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. While fries bake, make pimento spread.

    Make the Pimento Cheese

    Combine cream cheese, cheddar-jack cheese, and red pepper pesto in a mixing bowl until incorporated. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Steak Strips

    Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steak strips to hot pan and cook undisturbed, 2-3 minutes. Stir in remaining Cajun seasoning and a pinch of salt. Then stir occasionally until browned and steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes. Remove from burner.
