  • 03
  • For Café de Paris butter, beat ingredients in a bowl to combine, season to taste, set aside.

  • Increase oil to 180C. Deep-fry chips until golden and crisp (5-10 minutes; be careful as hot oil will spit). Drain on absorbent paper, season to taste and serve with steak topped with Café de Paris butter.
