Fried Beef Skirt Steak and Potatoes Recipe
An Armenian comfort dish made with fried beef skirt steak and potatoes. The dish is called “ Կեր ու սուս / Eat and don’t talk”. The name came from the fact that it very spicy dish, meaning that it’s so spicy that after you take a bite , you are unable to talk. Well, this doesn’t mean you really have to follow that rule and make it very hot and spicy, since many may have different taste preferences, reasons not to eat very spicy meal etc… This dish tastes very delicious even without too much spiciness.
Originally it is made with beef tenderloin, sliced into bite size pieces, cooked and then fried with onions and the rest of the ingredients, I decided to make mine with beef skirt steak since it’s a tender meat itself and no need to pre cook it before frying.
