For the steak fries:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Rinse off the potatoes and pat them dry. Leave the skin on but cut off any imperfections or bruises. Cut the potatoes in quarters lengthwise. If the potatoes are more on the round side you may need to cut them in fifths or sixths.
In a medium size bowl add the potatoes, olive oil, pepper, and salt. Mix together so all of the potatoes are coated in the oil. Drizzle some extra olive oil on a cookie sheet (or spray on some PAM if you prefer). Then add the potatoes to the cookie sheet. Spread the potatoes out so one of the cut sides is lying flat on the cookie sheet. Bake in the oven until the sides facing down turn a golden color (about 25 minutes). When they come out of the oven add some additional salt if you like and salt to taste.
For the smokey ketchup:
While the potatoes are cooking, add the ketchup to a small bowl. Then add the Liquid Smoke. Give the ketchup mixture a stir and a taste test. If you prefer a little more smoke flavor, then add just a tiny bit more of the Liquid Smoke at a time in between taste tests. Serve the steak fries hot right out of the oven along with the smokey ketchup.
