Ingredients

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):

Directions

Preheat the fryer. Season the ribeye with olive oil and Essence. In a saute pan, pan saute the steaks for 4 minutes on each side for medium rare. For the potatoes: In a sauce pot, bring the potatoes (covered with salted water) up to a boil and reduce the heat. Cook the potatoes until they are fork tender, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain. Place back in the sauce pot and partly mash with a hand masher. (This dehydrates the potatoes) Add the cream, butter and garlic. Mash until incorporated but the potatoes still have lumps. Season with salt and pepper.

For the fried onions: In a small mixing bowl, toss the onions with the hot sauce. Dredge the onions in the seasoned flour and sift completely removing any excess flour. Fry the onions for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the fryer and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season with Essence. Remove the steaks from the saute pan and deglaze the pan with the Worcestershire sauce. Place the hoagie bun on a platter. Lay the rib-eye across the bottom bun. Mound the potatoes on the top of the steak. Spoon the worcestershire sauce over the potatoes. Pile the onions on top of the potatoes. Garnish with parsley and Zaps.

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):

Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
