Steppegras is a quite recent variant of Belgian Fries. It mainly consists of a mountain of thinly cut and crispy fried potato strips. Hidden below the fries is the meat you ordered (preferably steak).

This website claims to make the only original steppegras. It seems to have been invented by Jean Ceustermans in 1968. The man has even patented his “invention”. A commercial license is also available on the website.
Note: According to a reply in this blog, the restaurant in Leopoldsburg went bust beginning of 2008.

Another website. This restaurant just claims they made Steppegras big and famous.
