Steak and Frites

My version of a medium rare steak and hand cut oven baked fries with sriracha mayo.The sauce dripping off the steak is just drippings in the pan from the steak, some beef broth, red wine, and cream cheese. Oven baked fries suck (or I just failed terribly), gonna just stick to deep frying them. 

Steak: Leave it out in room temperature for about 30 minutes. Season both sides with salt and pepper, add other spices if you’d like. I usually add ground corriander, cumin and a bit of basil or thyme. Heat a pan on high, with oil, until it starts smoking. Searing times vary depending on the thickness of your steak. This was a pretty thin steak (1 inch), so I seared each side for 3-4 minutes for medium rare, then rested it for 7 minutes. Only flip your steak once to get even cooking and a nice crust. Also, sear the rind.
