How to Cook Golden Fried Potatoes (Sautée Potatoes)

  1. Peel the potatoes then slice them so that you have roughly circular pieces about ¼" (0.5cm) thick. Rinse under cold water to remove any excess starch then cook in boiling, salted water for just 5 minutes.
  2. Melt the duck fat (or alternative) in a large skillet (frying pan). Add the potatoes to the pan then peel and crush (mince) the garlic and add to the potatoes. Fry gently, turning regularly, for about 10 minutes then add the chopped parsley. Continue frying gently (about another 5-10 minutes) until the potatoes are golden brown on both sides.
  3. Drain the potatoes on several layers of absorbent kitchen paper for a few moments before serving.

Do not fry the potatoes too quickly or they will brown before they are thoroughly cooked inside. A medium heat works just fine.

What a brilliant way to cook sautee potatoes. Really easy, but the addition of the garlic and parsley makes all the difference. No wonder the french have a reputation for taste in their cooking.
