Bite with Belkys: German potatoes from Wolfgang's Steakhouse in Downtown Miami
When you say steak you can't help but think of potatoes as the perfect side dish. Tonight's creation is rich and buttery and comes to us from Germany. We'll show you how to make it as we grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Restaurant: Wolfgang's Steakhouse, Downtown Miami
The Dish: German Potatoes
2 large Idaho Potatoes
1 large Spanish Onion
1/2 cup of clarified butter (salted)
1 Tbs. salt
1 Tsp. white pepper
Method of Preparation:
-Boil salted water in a pot. Add whole potatoes with skin on. Cook until soft but not over-cooked- about 30 minutes. When done, set aside to cool and refrigerate until cold.
-When you're ready to make the German Potatoes- first peel them, then cut them in half lengthwise and quarter them. Now, slice each quarter about 1/4 inch in diameter.
-Next, cut the Spanish onion in half and give it a rough chop.
-Heat a pan until it begins to smoke, then add 1/4 cup of melted clarified butter and the onion. Sauté the onion until it begins to soften.
-Add the sliced potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Mix well Add the rest of the butter.
-Gently stir the potatoes for several minutes until potatoes are a crispy golden brown.
-Now, drain the butter and heap the potatoes onto an oven safe plate. Finish in the oven at 350 degrees until it's crusty and a deeper golden brown- about 15 minutes.
Serve German Potatoes with a nice juicy steak and a hearty red wine.
