Well or steak fries in my case. It’s easy.
First wash russet potatoes and dry them. Then cut a small piece from the bottom of the potato to stabilize it and then cut down 3 to 4 slices. Then each slice is cut into 3 to 4 fries. Into cold water.
Heat oil to 350F (180C I believe) – I use a deep fryer but you can do it in a pan with enough oil and a good thermometer.
Drain the water and then into the fryer.
Fry them for 4 minutes and then remove to drain and rest. You can let them rest for some time. Then when you’re ready back into the 350F/180C oil and fry again for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown.
It’s awesome. Crispy outside, fluffy inside.
Here they are in their first frying. You’ll note quite a bit of steam comes off the potatoes during this fry.
And yes, that’s my voice.
Better here’s the second frying – note less moisture coming off the potatoes.

You could try baking the chips (sorry fries) in some oil and rosemary a la Barefoot Contessa.
Bah – nothing like a big bath of oil to cook potatoes.
I was thinking of your stomach. Actually I was thinking of mine,
Well I’ve been known to have a cast iron stomach. Nothing really bothers me. However as I get older I can only handle say two New York System Weiners as opposed the six I used to eat when I was younger.
