If you love the perfectly crispy shoestring fries often found at a steakhouse, then you must try this copycat recipe.
I love copycat recipes, especially when they turn out as amazing as these Shoestring Fries as a copycat from Ruth’s Chris!! They are light and crispy, salted to perfection and just a hint of parsley. This recipe is very attainable with the use of a mandolin.
Don’t you just want to stick your hand in and grab one of these delicious fries? A great french fry, if cooked in oil is also, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free, so almost anyone can indulge in this treat on occasion. Imagine these served with a big juicy steak!! You would get rave reviews and they are not hard to make with the right equipment. For a lot of our frying we don’t pull out the big deep fryer but actually a wok works great! It is deep and heats quickly.
Another hugely popular copycat recipe from Ruth’s Chris is this Copycat Ruth’s Chris Sweet Potato Casserole. This one is absolutely scrumptious and can be served at so many different times all year long. Think of it for a special night with a gorgeous steak, or at Easter with ham, Thanksgiving with turkey, Christmas with all the fixins’. The list goes on and on, a widely successful recipe!! See the recipe here.

Cooking, baking and entertaining have been a lifelong passion for me. I started at a very young age to bake and cook for my family. Even attempting many of Julia Child’s recipes as a young teenager and cooking meals for the family or for company. Now I love entertaining and celebrating the holidays. My husband Ken loves being in the kitchen creating right along with me. Our daughter has been doing cooking classes with me for a number of years and also enjoys everything that the kitchen has to offer.
