Perfect for the upcoming Super Bowl Sunday, these Steak Sweet Potato Fries will definitely be a crowd pleaser!
It’s no secret that I’m not really a fan of watching sports on television. I’d rather be the one out playing. I guess you could call me a doer, not really a watcher of things. Sometimes that works to my advantage, and sometimes not! Ha. Back on topic…the Super Bowl. Truth: I have no idea who is playing in the Super Bowl, but I’ll probably end up watching (sort of) anyway. If football is an excuse to hang out with friends, and make and eat delicious food…I’m in.

These steak fries are crowd pleasers, a no one will feel like their skimping and eating “health food”. Don’t you LOVE ordering steak fries from a restaurant, where they’re salty with a light spicy kick? The secret: steak seasoning.
For years I’ve loved Tony’s (pictured below, and no they don’t know I’m alive, I just really like their product) for fish, steak, chicken and now as a steak fries seasoning. You can pick it up at most grocery stores next to the steak seasonings. I used a mix of sweet potatoes, both white and orange. My 7yo is convinced he hates sweet potatoes, but if I feed him the white ones he gobbles them right up.
To get these the right amount of crispy (without deep frying) you need to cook them on a rack and at a high temperature (450 F deg). This trick is new to me, and I’ll be baking ALL of my fries using this method in the future. Extra bonus: no pan clean up!
And finally, the right dipping sauce will send these fries over the moon. I’m from Utah, and if you know Utahns, you know we’re a little fanatical about fry sauce. It’s almost religious. (Ha, I made a Utah joke right there.) Here I wanted to make a bbq fry sauce to pair perfectly with the steak seasoning. I simply mixed Primal Kitchen Mayo with Tessemae’s Matty’s BBQ Sauce and Tessemae’s Hot Buffalo Sauce (for an extra kick). If you don’t have mayo on hand you can easily make your own following my MAYO recipe.
And that’s basically it! So simple. So easy. So delicious and Soooo satisfying. These might become a weekly regular. Forget the Super Bowl. Ha!
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 3 T olive oil
- 1 tsp steak seasoning
- 1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
- 1 C paleo mayo
- 4-5 T clean BBQ sauce
- 1 T hot sauce/buffalo sauce (optional)
- Preheat oven to 450 deg F.
- Wash and pat dry sweet potatoes. Cut into wedges.

- Line a cookie sheet with tin foil, then top with a baking rack. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on top of the rack.
- Bake at 450 deg F for 30 - 35 min, or until edges of potatoes start to crisp.
- For extra crispiness turn oven to broil and continue cooking for 3-5 min, checking the potatoes after every minute.
- Season with fresh rosemary right out of the oven (if you wait too long the rosemary won't stick).
- For the dipping sauce mix paleo mayo, BBQ sauce and hot sauce together in a bowl.
- Serve while hot, and enjoy!
