For steak fries:

2 sirloin steaks, cut into 1/2" thick strips

2/3 cup flour

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons pepper

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

Vegetable oil for frying

For the frittata:

Olive oil

1 onion, chopped

3 - 4 chili peppers, diced

3 tablespoons butter

6 large eggs, beaten

1/2 teaspoon EACH salt and pepper

2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese

2 medium tomatoes, diced

Coffee and brandy

Tootsie Rolls

      The Recipe

Mix together flour, salt, pepper and garlic in medium bowl.  In a large, oven-proof skillet, heat about 1/2" of vegetable oil.  Dredge steak pieces into flour mixture and fry in oil until browned (about 7 minutes).  Drain on paper-towel lined baking sheet and keep warm in low oven.

Make frittata:  Discard vegetable oil and add a splash of olive oil.  Saute onion and peppers until tender.  Remove to a bowl.  Add butter to same skillet.  Add eggs and cook over medium flame until bottom is set.  Sprinkle on onion-pepper mixture, Cheddar cheese and tomatoes.  Place under broiler until cheese melts.  Serve a slice of frittata with steak fries, a splash of brandy in your coffee, and some Tootsie Rolls for dessert.  Serves 4.
