    Directions
    Fries:

    1.
    Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat 1 large or 2 small baking sheets with cooking spray. Place fries in large bowl. In small bowl, mix crumbs, Parmesan and cayenne. Add egg whites to fries; sprinkle with seasoning mixture; toss. Spread on prepared baking sheet(s).

    Bake in 450 degree F oven 15 to 20 minutes or follow package directions.
    Steak:

    Meanwhile, spread the skirt steaks on a large cutting board. Slice each steak in thirds, for 6 steaks total, each about 8 x 3-1/2 inches. Season steaks on both sides with the salt, pepper and chili powder.
    2.
    Heat 12-inch skillet (not nonstick) over medium-high heat. Add 3 steaks; sear 3 minutes. Turn over; cook 3 minutes or until 145 degrees F for medium-rare. Transfer steaks to platter; tent with foil. Repeat with remaining 3 steaks. Transfer to a large platter. Keep warm.
    Sauce:

    1.
    Reduce the heat to medium. Add the butter to the skillet. Add onion; saute for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; saute 3 minutes. Stir in Worcestershire sauce. Sprinkle evenly with flour. Whisk in beef broth until well blended. Simmer 2 minutes or until thickened. Season with salt; remove from heat. Serve mushroom sauce with steak and fries. Makes 6 servings.

    Beer-Braised Sirloin Tips with Mushroom Sauce

    Sirloin tips are a great choice for a quick braise, as they're full of flavor and will have a pleasantly chewy texture after 20 minutes of cooking (further cooking would toughen them). Some grocers mistakenly label tri-tip steak as sirloin tips. You'll recognize real sirloin tips (also called loin flap meat) by the marbling. If the cut looks lean, ask your butcher if it's truly loin flap meat.
