When I moved to Utah, they remained a side to my burger but were dipped in fry sauce, a Utah concoction of mayo and ketchup. Then I upgraded to a mixture of bbq sauce and mayo.

Then I discovered loaded fries. They stopped being a side dish and became the whole meal. Endless possibilities of toppings: meats, cheeses, veggies, sauces. You’re really only limited by your imagination.

This post is sponsored by Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q.  As part of my on-going relationship with them, I received Sticky Sweet Sauce, Texas Sriracha Sauce, and Steak Spice Rub to create recipes with and review, however all thoughts and opinions, glowing, gushing, or otherwise, are 100% my own.London Broil Loaded Fries w/ Mushrooms and Blue Cheese Sauce ~ Marinated and Grilled London Broil with Sautéed Mushrooms and Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce over Steak Fries ~ The Complete SavoristWhen this package of goodies arrived, I probably came up at least a dozen different recipes in my head. Some pretty crazy, and some simple like a grilled steak. Then a week or so later I was getting some tacos from one of my favorite local Mexican fast food places. They have these carne asada fries on the menu. I love these fries: carne asada, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, cheese, and crinkle cut fries. Delicious.

But that’s when the idea hit me, loaded fries. Now that that part was settled, the really hard part was how to top them. Steak was the obvious choice, so I selected a London broil. This cut of meat is budget friendly, but isn’t the most tender. To make it tender it really requires being marinated…for hours, if not overnight. The little bit of extra love and attention by marinating it makes it a great choice.London Broil Loaded Fries w/ Mushrooms and Blue Cheese Sauce ~ Marinated and Grilled London Broil with Sautéed Mushrooms and Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce over Steak Fries ~ The Complete SavoristOf all three items in my package, the spice rub was what I focused on for this recipe. Stubb’s All-Natural Steak Spice Rub (and their sauces too) are free from artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors, and preservatives. The rubs are a great way to add extra zing and zip to your food without adding excess fat or calories, a win in my book.

Now, when is a rub more than just a rub? When you get creative with it, that’s when. I took the Stubb’s All-Natural Steak Spice Rub and turned it into a marinade for the beef. A few ingredients later, it was a on it’s way to tenderizing the London Broil. Then when plating the for the photoshoot, I was struggling with the how to apply the creamy blue cheese sauce, so Matthew took over–or more accurately was handed the sauce asked to execute his idea (ok, ok, maybe not so much asked but told to finish it.)  He drizzled the sauce, sprinkled the chives, and then suggested finishing it all off with more of the dry rub. It was a brilliant suggestion on his part, the spice rub really add the perfect pop of flavor to the whole dish…and he did a fantastic job styling the plate.

Since the humble beef was getting a fancy makeover, I went with fancier (sounding) toppings. Sautéed whole mushrooms in white wine and thyme, a creamy blue cheese sauce, and fresh chives sounded absolutely delectable to me. Still easy to make but has a flair for the gourmet. Voilà, London Broil Loaded Fries with Mushroom and Blue Cheese Sauce!

The creamy blue cheese sauce is decadent. It’s rich and tangy like you’d expect. To spice it up a bit, add some kickin’ Stubb’s Texas Sriracha Sauce at the end of the cooking process. Add anywhere from 1 teaspoon to a tablespoon, or to whatever taste and heat you like best.

London Broil Loaded Fries w/ Mushrooms and Blue Cheese Sauce ~ Marinated and Grilled London Broil with Sautéed Mushrooms and Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce over Steak Fries ~ The Complete SavoristWhen it came to assembling this delicious dish, sampling will be a great temptation, or at least is was for me. So maybe make a few extra fries and have a few extra slices of steak handy for that urge to sample, if not for you, for the hungry child who has lost all patience with you while trying to assemble it. Elizabeth is normally pretty good at waiting for me to get the food ready and get through the photoshoot but not this day. She was clamoring to eat. It was hard to resist pulling a fry out here or there to nibble on.

We truly enjoyed the melding of flavors in this dish. It’s slightly messy to eat, so if you use a fork and a knife, no judgement here. Or if you use your fingers but need to lick them clean every so often, no judgement either. The Stubb’s All-Natural Steak Spice Rub created a fantastic marinade and used when as a garnish, it really added an extra layer of flavor.

    I use the stubbs brisket rub instead of bbq sauce all the time- I like that there is no added sugar in it.

      That is what I love about it too, and that I can read and know each ingredient on the label, nothing scientific.
