Rustic and Crunchy Fondant Potatoes
Fondant Potatoes sound so fancy, but they are nothing more than just some crunchy and rustic roasted potatoes. They are simply mouthwatering and ultra-delicious. Once you will try this recipe you will want to make it again and again.
- 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.
