Steak Frites, Creamy Shallot Sauce and Sautéed Spinach with a hint of Garlic

Steak-frites, meaning steak and chips, is a traditional mid-week dish served in French bistros. It is considered by many to be the national dish of Belgium and France, who both claim to be the place of its invention. Cooking tip: The steak will need time to rest, while the spinach and sauce are best enjoyed straight from the stove – wait to cook both until the frites are just about done. If the sauce cools and begins to thicken, simply warm it again over a medium heat.
