To make this bistro classic, use a cast iron skillet, get it really hot, and sear the steak on both sides. The preferred cut is entrecôte, or rib-eye, and if you ask the butcher to cut it into steaks that aren’t too thick you’ll have lots of surface area on the steaks. No bistro steak is complete without the classic accompaniment of French fries.
