Zaatar Recipe - Oven Baked Zaatar Steak Fries

It’s amazing how an everyday ingredient like the humble potato can be transformed into a flavor-packed treat with the addition of zaatar!

 These steak fries are a simple side to whip up and are great alongside burgers, pork chops, and as the name implies, steaks!  In addition to being much healthier than frying, baking the fries produces a crispy, crunchy exterior while keeping them soft and creamy on the inside.  Tyme Food’s Zaatar adds an exotic, herbaceous touch and when paired with the lemon-yogurt dipping sauce, the combination of flavors is incredible.  To really intensify the flavor in the dipping sauce, we’ve added sumac, which offers a tart, lemony flavor without being acidic.  Our sumac is cultivated from seed in the mountains of southern Lebanon and is much stronger in flavor than common sumac, so a little bit goes a long way!

Za'atar Oven Baked Steak Fries

Yield:  4-6 servings

 Oven Baked Za'atar Steak Fries step one through step eight


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and lightly grease 2 large baking sheets.
  2. Cut each potato in half lengthwise, then into 3-4 wedges per half.
  3. Divide the fries evenly between the two baking sheets, then drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with the za'atar and parmesan cheese, and toss to ensure they are evenly coated.
  4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. After 15 minutes, remove the fries from the oven and flip each one over.
  6. Return to the oven for another 15-20 minutes, until crisp and browned on all sides.
  7. While the potatoes are baking, prepare the lemon-yogurt dipping sauce by placing the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisking until smooth.
  8. Serve the warm steak fries with the lemon-yogurt dipping sauce and enjoy! (And if you’d rather dip them in ketchup, go for it. We won’t judge you!)
