Morton's Lyonnaise Potatoes
Father's Day is coming up, and what better way to say "I love you" than with meat and potatoes.
Chef Nick Butler from Morton's: The Steakhouse shares the recipe for Lyonnaise Potatoes.
Lyonnaise Potatoes From Morton's Steak Bible
3 ¾ pounds baking potatoes, baked and cooled (3 to 5 large baking potatoes)
1 cup bacon fat
2 ¼ pounds Spanish onions (3 medium onions), sliced ¼ inch thick
Salt and freshly ground white pepper
1 teaspoon chopped fresh curly-leaf parsley
Cut the ends off the potatoes, peel and slice in half lengthwise. Cut each half across into ¾ inch thick slices and set aside
Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. When warm, add half the bacon fat and heat until hot. Add half the potatoes and toss. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until light golden brown
Add half the onions, season to taste with salt and pepper, and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to a large bowl, cover loosely, and set aside to keep warm. Repeat to make the second batch with the remaining fat, potatoes, onions and seasoning.
When all the potatoes are in the bowl, add the parsley and toss. Serve immediately.
