How to Cook Potato Lyonnaise

  1. Peel the potatoes, cut them lengthways into four segments per potato. Rinse in cold water to remove any excess starch, then place them in a pan with enough lightly-salted water to completely cover them. Bring the water to the boil and cook for just 8-10 minutes (they should remain slightly undercooked). Remove from the heat and drain off the water. Now cut into slices about ¼" (0.5cm) thick.
  2. Meanwhile peel and slice the onion and fry gently in the fat for about 8 minutes. Add the sliced potatoes to the pan and continue cooking over a gentle heat, turning occasionally, until they become a light golden-brown. (If during this time, the onions start to brown, remove them from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside until the potatoes are cooked, then add them back to the pan for a minute prior to serving). Sprinkle with a little freshly-chopped parsley and serve hot.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
For a little extra 'tang', add a finely chopped clove of garlic to the frying pan at the same time you add the potatoes.

Reviews of Potato Lyonnaise

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again January 15 2015
A bit time consuming, but not difficult and very tasty. Don't be scared by the thought of two large onions, when properly caramelized they cook down to a much smaller volume. In fact, you could add a third and it wouldn't matter. I suggest everyone try these! They are terrific! Thanks for sharing with all of us!

Frying mushrooms gives a far better result than grilling them. Grilling often leaves them dry and 'withered' so it's not a method I recommend.
