With only 3/4 of the family around we still managed to pull a pretty incredible steak and sauté potatoes out in the garden with a couple of greens snuck in!
To make the best sauté potatoes like my mother-in-law you to make.
10-12 Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes
8-10 garlic cloves skins on
10-12 sage leaves
A few sprigs of Rosemary
Goose fat or light olive or sunflower oil with a knob of butter
Peel the potatoes and cut them into small dice size pieces.
Heat a large spoonful of goose fat or two spoonfuls of oil with a knob of butter in a large frying pan. When melted, add the potatoes. season with salt and pepper, turn the heat down to a low and cook for ten minutes. Add the garlic and rosemary toss well and cook slowly for a further 30-40 minutes tossing occasionally till the potatoes are turning golden brown and are cooked through.
Turn the heat up, add the sage and cook for a further 3-4 minutes till the potatoes are crisp.
Check for seasoning and serve.
To round off a wonderful meal, what better than a generous helping of summer fruits, macerated in homemade orange gin?!
Natasha and I are planning on experimenting with savoury macaroons tomorrow as she is home for the weekend, so hold on to the edge of your seats, anything could happen…
Looks fantastic!!! Tasted even better…
