Fast Cajun Steak Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Cajun Steak Sandwich

While the pairing of beef and potatoes has many forms, the most basic, and perhaps most common, is the burger and fries. This recipe takes that classic concept and rethinks it into an elegant but uncomplicated dinner. Instead of ground beef, use a boneless piece of steak to make an open-faced sandwich. Top with a simple and savory sauce and thick-cut slices of tomatoes. Serve with sweet potato fries and you've got a meat-and-potatoes meal that's enjoyed by both kids and adults alike.
