Prep Time: 5minutes
Cook Time: 35minutes
1peeled and thinly sliced red onion
1 ½tablespoonsbalsamic vinegar
Oil for frying, canola or vegetable
2large thinly sliced Yukon gold potato
2 8-ouncefilet mignon steaks
1 5.2ozbox of Boursin® Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Add the butter to a medium-size sauté pan over low heat and cook the onions with the sugar for 30-35 minutes or until very soft and caramelized. Finish by mixing in the balsamic vinegar.
In the meantime, add enough oil to go up to 2” on a medium-size pot and heat over medium heat until it reaches 350°.
Add 6-10 potato slices at a time and cook for 1-2 minutes or until brown on both sides. Cook in batches until all the potato slices have been fried. Set on a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
Season the steaks on each side with salt and pepper and then add 1-2 tablespoons of cooking oil to a medium-size sauté pan over high heat.
Once the oil begins to smoke lightly, add in the steaks and turn the heat down to medium-high and cook for 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare internal temperature. Set the steaks aside on a plate and rest for 2-3 minutes before thinly slicing.
To Plate: Place a few pieces of arugula on a chip and then layer on with a slice of cooked steak, caramelized onion, and Boursin® Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese. Add on optional garnish of finely sliced chives and red bell pepper.
Serve Fresh: You can make these up to 1 hour ahead of time, but for best results, serve them immediately once they are finished.
How to Store: Cover in plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.
Swap Ingredients: Feel free to swap out the red onion for a yellow or white onion.
Simple Swap: Swap out the Yukon gold potato for a basic russet potato or a red new potato chip.
Mix It Up: You can also serve the steak upon many different carriers such as crostini, cucumber slice, fried beet, etc.
Elevate It: Feel free to use microgreens, pea tendrils, baby spinach, or mosh instead of arugula
