  • not-stick skillet


  • 6 potatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup pork lard with meat
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Prepare the potatoes. Trim the ends and cut potatoes crosswise into 2 inch thick slices. Transfer potatoes in a bowl with cold water and soak them at least 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven to 400° F.
  • Drains potato slices and then pat dry them with a paper towel. Transfer them back in a dry bowl and season generously with salt, black pepper, and paprika.
  • Heat a big non-stick skillet with some olive oil over high heat. Add potatoes in a single layer cut-side down. Cook until golden brown and then flip the potatoes to the other side and add garlic.
  • When potatoes are well-browned add lard with meat and send the dish to the oven. Because my lard was with too much meat I have added ½ cup of water. Bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on the thickness of the potatoes.
