Since I failed to take a picture of my delicious grilled rib eye, I will post one of the sides! These are my favorite way to eat potatoes as they are so crispy and flavorful you don’t need much to help them along. I usually serve these with my spicy Siracha ketchup, but I felt like having garlic aioli tonight. I make my own mayonnaise and keep it in a mason jar in the fridge for about a week or two, it’s super easy and I just love the taste of it! I use it for sandwich spreads, and aioli as I feel it is more authentic. I use Hellman’s mayonaise for everything else, so feel free to use whatever commercial brand you like.
The steak fries get their flavor from a mix of spices, what really makes this is the Rally Fries seasoning. I stumbled upon this at TJ Maxx and have been hooked ever since. Rally is a fast food chain in the midwest and western states that is similar to Checkers. I have never been, but their commercial spice rub for fries makes me curious! If you don’t have this you can substitute garlic powder and dried parsley. This makes a tasty appetizer as well as a sexy side, and honestly you won’t miss the fact that these babies are not fried, they are that good and I love the bit of spice!

- 4-6 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
- 1 tsp. of the following: chipotle chili powder, chili powder, Cajun seasoning,
- 2 tsp. of Rally Fries seasoning or a mix of garlic powder and parsley if not using
- 3 tbsp. of EVVO
- 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp. of fresh rosemary chopped finely
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- juice of half a lemon
- Kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste
For the Steak Fries
- Pre heat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a large bowl add all of the seasonings, and EVOO, add potato wedges and coat well. Season with salt and pepper.
- On a large baking sheet, dump steak fries onto sheet pan, in a single layer.
- Roast for about 20 minutes, then turn, bake for about 25 minutes more or until desired crispness is achieved. I usually wind up turning up the temp to 425 degrees for the last few minutes to get the crispness that my family loves. Depends on your oven. Remove from oven let rest for about five minutes then transfer to serving plate.
For the Garlic Aioli
- In a large bowl, mix the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, chopped rosemary, salt and pepper. Mix well to combine. Transfer to serving cup. Serve up with steak fries as desired.
