How to Make It

Step 1    

Brush the steaks with the melted butter and season with pepper; let the steaks come to room temperature.

Step 2    

In a small bowl, beat the 4 tablespoons of butter with the Roquefort until blended.

Step 3    

Peel the potatoes and slice lengthwise 1/4 inch thick. Cut the slices into 1/4-inch-wide sticks and soak in ice water for 15 minutes.

Step 4    

In a deep-fryer or a large saucepan, heat 2 inches of oil to 325°. Drain the potatoes and blot them completely dry. Divide the potatoes into 4 batches and fry each batch until cooked through but not browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried potatoes to paper towels to drain.

Step 5    

Light a grill. Generously season the steaks with salt and grill over a hot fire for 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Alternatively, pan-fry the steaks over moderately high heat for about 4 minutes per side.

Step 6    

Reheat the oil to 375°. Fry the potatoes until crisp and golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per batch. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the frites to fresh paper towels to drain. Top each steak with a spoonful of Roquefort butter and serve the frites on the side.

Make Ahead

The frites can stand at room temperature for up to 4 hours after their preliminary frying.
