There are some things in life that are just worth it. Worth the money. Worth the calories. Worth the time. Some things just are—and this is one of them.
Pommes de Terre Sarladaises is a canonical French potato dish made of only three ingredients: potatoes, garlic, and fat. The fat is usually duck or goose fat.
- 3 tablespoons clarified butter, goose fat, or duck fat
- 4 large Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch discs
- 8 medium cloves garlic, sliced thin
- 1 cup of water
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
- Freshly ground black pepper
COURSE: Vegetables and Sides
- Add fat to heavy-bottomed 12-inch non-stick skillet and heat over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook stirring occasionally, until potatoes are deep golden brown.
- Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 3/4 cup water and salt to potatoes. Cover and cook until potatoes are tender, adding additional water if water evaporates before potatoes are cooked through. Cook until liquid is evaporated. Add parsley, season to taste with additional salt and black pepper, stir gently to combine, and serve immediately.
