    I came up with this recipe several years ago when I was hungry at the restaurant I worked in but didnt really have time to make anything. I happened to have some small ribeye scraps from cutting a bunch of steaks so I threw some on the grill and dropped some fries in the fryer. I started eating them as is when I saw a bottle of balsamic vinegar reduction so I put some of that on it and some parmesan cheese. It has become a favorite of my family's and for a lot of cooks that have worked for me over the years. I know it is not smoked but it could be and it does not get much easier than this.

    grilled or smoked sliced ribeye steak
    french fries
    parmesan cheese
    balsamic vinegar reduction or glaze

    Not the best looking dish I must say but it sure is tasty!

    Thanks for looking!

    I know how it is working in a restaurant, sometimes you don't have much time and just toss a few things together and come up with something great!
    Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Your right it's not real pretty but I'm sure it does taste good. Just goes to show you food doesn't have to be pretty but I will say it helps to be good.

    Nice! Spur-of-the-moment and high pressure/stress situations or time constraints seem to bring out the best creativity in many great cooks...that right there is a prime recipe needed, keep it simple and it will always be good eating.

    Definately a treat! [​IMG]

    Try the Balsamic reduction on pizza! I kid you not, have a squeeze bottle of the stuff ready to go every time I order (and for almost everything else)!
