Steak and French Fry-Stir Fry

 Okay… this is my take on Food & Wine’s Peruvian Steak and Potato Stir-Fry. I don’t feel like I can call my version of this recipe “Peruvian” when I’ve made my tweaks.  I have been carrying this recipe around saved up in Evernote just waiting for a opportunity to make it.  Metropolitan Market had New York Steaks on sale… I couldn’t resist – here’s my chance… BUT...
