Tartiflette

main course french potato

Ingredients

  • 1 Reblochon [1 wheel Reblochon de Savoie]
  • 1 kg de pommes de terre à chair ferme [2 lb firm-flesh potatoes]
  • 200 g de lardons fumés [200g bacon, chopped]
  • 2 gros oignons (200 g environ) [2 large onions, around 200g]
  • 10 cl de vin blanc [1/2 c white wine]
  • Poivre du moulin [fresh-ground pepper]
  • En option : noix de muscade râpée [ground nutmeg (optional)]

Preparation

Préchauffez votre four à 200°C. [Preheat your oven to 400F.]

Épluchez et découpez les pommes de terre en morceaux (environ 5mm). Découpez les oignons en rondelles. [Peel and chop the potatoes into around 1/4" pieces. Slice the onions into rounds.]

Dans une poêle, faites revenir les lardons avec les oignons afin qu’ils commencent à dorer (5-10 min). Ajoutez les pommes de terre et laisser cuire à feu moyen durant 30-45 minutes. Déglacez au vin blanc et laisser cuire 5 minutes. Poivrez (pas besoin de saler avec les lardons), et ajoutez la noix de muscade selon vos goûts. [In a large skillet, cook the bacon and onions until they start to brown (5-10 min). Add the potatoes and let them cook over medium heat for 30-45 minutes. Deglaze the pan with the wine and cook for five minutes. Season with pepper (no need for salt with the bacon), and add nutmeg to taste.]

Découpez votre Reblochon en deux dans le sens de l’épaisseur en conservant la croûte. Conservez une face pour mettre sur le dessus du plat afin de faire gratiner (que vous découperez en 2 ou 4 selon la forme de votre plat), et découpez l’autre face en petits morceaux à intégrer dans la préparation pommes de terre-lardons-oignons. [Cut your Reblochon in half lengthwise, keeping the rind. Keep one of the halves to melt on top of the dish (which you can cut into 2 or 4 depending on the shape of your dish), and cut the other half into small pieces to mix into the potato-onion-bacon mixture.]

Dans un plat allant au four, disposez le mélange pommes de terre-lardons-oignons et les morceaux de reblochon puis déposez sur le dessus le ½ reblochon pour gratiner, croûte vers le haut. [In an oven-safe baking dish, add the potato-bacon-onion mixture and the pieces of Reblochon, then set the half-reblochon on top to melt, rind toward the top.]

Placez au four durant 15 à 20 minutes afin que le Reblochon dore. Servez chaud avec une salade verte. [Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes so that the Reblochon melts. Serve hot with a green salad.]

Stoofvlees met friet (Carbonnade avec frites)

main course beef belgian potato stew

Ingredients

  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • butter, cubed
  • 1 kg round steak, in equal 1–1.5" pieces
  • 250g of bacon (thick slices, not lardons; optional)
  • fresh-ground black pepper
  • salt
  • 2–3 bottles of Sint Bernardus Abt 12
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 whole clove
  • 1 tbsp. Liège syrup [CP: this was 2 tbsp., 1 tbsp. needs testing] OR 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • enough slices of brown sandwich bread or pain d’épices to cover the surface of your pot
  • 2 tbsp. (sharp) mustard
  • dash white vinegar
  • 1 kg potatoes
  • mayonnaise

Preparation

Heat a large stew-pot over medium heat and melt a knob of butter. Cook the onions for around 10 minutes, covered, and make sure not to let them brown. If using the bacon, add it now, raise the heat a bit, and stir regularly, still keeping it covered as much as possible. When the bacon is cooked (or if you’re not using it), take everything out of the pot (leaving the juices) and reserve.

Add another knob of butter. Sear the meat cubes on all sides until golden brown, seasoning with a bit of salt and pepper. Reserve the meat. If you are using cassonade instead of Liège syrup, add it to the pot now, mix with all of the meat and onion juices, and let it reduce by half to make a “syrup.”

Return the onions (and possibly bacon) and the meat to the pan. Deglaze with the beer, adding enough just to cover the meat all the way, and bring to a boil. Tie the thyme and bay leaves together and add the herbs, clove, and Liège syrup (if using) to the pot. Smear the bread with the mustard and add it to the pot, smeared side down.

Let the stew simmer for three and a half hours, uncovered. The cooking time will depend on the quality of the meat. Stir occasionally to check doneness. Cover only when the sauce has sufficiently thickened.

Finish the stew with a dash of white vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.

For the frites:

Peel the potatoes and cut them into strips (ideally, 1.3cm). Do not wash them, as this rinses off the starch. Heat the fryer to 140C. Fry the fries for the first time, but do not let them brown. Cool them in a baking dish with some paper towels. Heat the fryer to 180C, and fry the fries until golden brown and crispy. Drain the fries over some paper towel and sprinkle with salt.

Serve a portion of stew with fries and a spoonful of fresh mayonnaise.

Tortilla de Patata con Chips

breakfast main course potato spanish tapas untested

Ingredients

  • 7 large eggs
  • 1 bag nice plain potato chips (6.7 oz)
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil

Preparation

Break 6 eggs into a mixing bowl. Add 2/3 of the bag of chips and stir, crushing them a little as you blend the eggs together. Allow the mixture to sit until the chips absorb most of the egg, about 5 minutes. Beat the remaining egg in a small bowl and add it to the egg-chip mixture. Add the salt.

Heat 2 tbsp. of oil in a small saute pan (no more than 6" in diameter), over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and stir briskly a few times with a wooden spoon to prevent them from sticking. Shake the pan in a circular motion for 10 seconds to keep the mixture loose as the eggs start to stick together. Lower the temperature and cook for 1 minute more.

Place a plate over the pan and invert the pan/plate so the tortilla winds up on the plate, raw side down. If the pan looks dry, add the last 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Return the tortilla to the pan by sliding it back in, raw side down. Cook for another 60 seconds, until the bottom is fully set.

Slide onto a clean serving plate, garnish with a sprinkle of salt and maybe a few more chips.

Patatas a la Importancia

side dish potato spanish tapas untested

Ingredients

  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1 large yellow onions or 2 medium
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3-4 threads Spanish saffron
  • 2 Tbsp. flour for sauce
  • 2/3 cup flour (approximately) to coat potatoes
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Finely chop the onions and garlic. Pour olive oil to cover entire bottom of a large frying pan. Place pan on medium heat. When oil is hot, add onions and garlic and sauté until onions are translucent and soft. Add about 2 Tbsp. flour and stir.

Add chicken broth and simmer for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes of simmering, remove broth from heat and set pan with sauce aside for later. While broth simmers, peel and cut potatoes. Slice potatoes – 1/3 to 1/2-inch thick.

Spread flour onto a large dinner plate. Dredge the potatoes slices in the flour and coat both sides thoroughly. Remove the potatoes when coated and set aside.

Pour olive oil approximately 1 inch deep in a large frying pan. Place pan on medium to medium-high heat.

Beat 2 eggs in a small mixing bowl. Dip each piece of potato into the egg to coat and remove quickly, allowing excess egg to run back into the bowl. Then, place in the hot oil. Carefully monitor the heat so that the oil does not burn.

As the potatoes cook and turn a golden color on one side, turn them over and brown the other side. Remove the pieces as they brown and allow to drain on a paper towel.

When most potatoes are fried, place them in a single layer in the frying pan with the onion-garlic sauce. Place pan back on stove. Cover and gently simmer on low until potatoes are cooked. Potatoes should be soft, but not mushy. If the broth evaporates and potatoes are not completely covered, add more broth or water. Salt to taste.
