Duck fat is making a serious mark in the “foodie” world. These home fries are the best I’ve ever had.
1. Fill a large pot with water and add a liberal amount of salt to the pot. Place the potatoes in the pot and turn on medium to high heat. Allow the potatoes stay in the pot at a slight boil for about 35 minutes. The potatoes should be soft but not thoroughly cooked through. Another way of knowing that the potatoes are about ready to come out is when the skin starts to peel off to the touch. Drain the potatoes and allow them to cool for about 20 minutes.
2. Now that the potatoes are cooled, begin to dice them into cubes. Grab a large cast iron skillet, if you have it. If not just use a large skillet, and turn on medium high heat. Add the duck fat into the pan and allow it to get hot. Add the onions and cook them in the duck fat for 5 minutes until they become translucent. Then add the garlic and the potatoes to the pan and cook until potatoes are golden brown on all sides, about 20 minutes. Then use a spatula and transfer the mixture to a large plate or serving platter. Season with salt and pepper and add the flat leaf parsley to the dish and toss.
That’s right, I said french fries! Low-fat, healthy french fries! I haven’t had a “real” french fry since February 2006. I have sworn off all deep-fried foods, as a personal preference. So when I came up with this recipe I almost cried; they are that good!
