  • Summary

    Excerpted from In the French Kitchen with Kids by Mardi Michels. "Steak frites, though a French classic, might seem like more of an adult meal, but in a country where the concept of a children’s menu isn’t as common as it is in North America, for example, this might be offered as the plat du jour for younger diners. It’s not unusual to see children eating their steak saignant (rare) either, but in this recipe, we cook the steak to medium. The best fries come from a deep fryer, but as that is not a common appliance in most households, I’m opting for oven-baked fries, which are not only less messy, but also easier for kids to cook."
