Home Made French Fries

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.

  1. You could try baking the chips (sorry fries) in some oil and rosemary a la Barefoot Contessa.

      1. 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.
