Servings 2


  • 3 4 oz cubed steak 
  • 3 sets hamburger brioche bun 
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp all purpose seasoning 
  • 1 russet potato sliced julienne style 


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp pan drippings 
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • ¾ Cup of milk 
  • ½ cup water 
  • ½ tsp garlic powder 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 


  •  Make two stations. A station of wet ingredients and dried ingredients. In a bow,l add 1/2 cup of milk and 1 egg. Whisk until fully combined. Now in a tray, add 2 cups all purpose flour and 2 tsp all purpose seasoning. Combine throughly. For your steak season it with salt and black pepper. Cut the steaks in half if need be to fit the buns
  • Once the steak is seasoned, coat it with flour, then the egg and milk mixture and finally more flour. Make sure to pack it in. Set aside in a clean plate to rest while you preheat the oil.
  •  In a skillet, add cooking oil to where it covers the bottom of the skillet and goes about 1/4 inch up. Heat it to 350 degrees and fry your steak about 2 min per side or until golden brown
  • Once they are all fried, fry the  julienne potatoes until golden brown. Make sure they are completely dried before frying them
  • Once fried, place them in a bowl and season with your favorite seasoning.
  • Drain most of the pan drippings leaving about 2 tbsp in the pan. Over low medium heat, add 2 tbsp butter. Once the butter is dissolved, add 2 tbsp all purpose flour and make sure you keep on whisking. Once the four becomes fragrant, and a nice golden brown, add the milk and water, add then in slowly and continuously whisk until fully combined.
  • Once you see the gravy thickening up, add garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cut heat off once the gravy has a nice consistency.
  • Now set the gravy aside. In a separate skillet, toast the buns with butter. Once they are toasted, let’s assemble! Add mayo to the buns, followed by the fried steak, gravy and finally the thin sliced fries. 


I topped my sandwich with a sunny side up egg and added chipotle sauce for a nice kick. This is optional. I used my julienne slicer to cut the russet potato.
