  • 2 pounds beef skirt steak - cut across the grain into 1/4-inch strips and 2-inch pieces

  • 2 ½ cups Swanson® Beef Broth, divided

  • 1 (1.4 ounce) package dry fajita seasoning

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 1 (32 ounce) package frozen French fries

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 onion, sliced into thin strips

  • 1 green or red bell pepper, cut into thin strips

  • 8 ounces cheese curds

  • cup Chopped cilantro

  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (Optional)


  1. Place beef pieces in a large resealable bag. Whisk 1/2 cup Swanson® Beef Broth, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and fajita seasoning mix together in small bowl until mix dissolves; pour over beef. Seal bag and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  3. Arrange French fries in a single layer on a baking sheet; bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes (or according to package directions).

  4. While fries are baking, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and stir until smooth, about 2 minutes. Whisk in remaining 2 cups Swanson® Beef Broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute 2 minutes or until soft. Add bell pepper and saute an additional 3 minutes.

  6. Drain marinade from beef and discard. Add beef to skillet with vegetables. Saute to desired doneness, about 5 minutes.

  7. Place fries on a serving platter. Cover fries with beef mixture and cheese curds. Top with gravy and garnish with cilantro and chopped jalapenos.

Cook's Note:

Cojita or any cheese you prefer can be used in place of the curds if you are unable to find them in your area.
