What To Serve With Steak: Fondant Potatoes (+ More Great Sides!)
Preparing The Potatoes
- Before beginning, please see my recipe notes for a quick suggestion on the preparation of your russet potatoes.
- To cut your potatoes, rinse potatoes and fill a medium bowl with cold water. Cut potatoes into your barrel shaped rounds (I used a round metal biscuit cutter and trimmed as needed to smooth out all sides) and place into the bowl of water.4 large russet potatoes
- Once all of the potato rounds are cut, allow the potatoes to soak in the bowl of water for about 5 minutes to remove the starch. Rinse again in cold water and pat the rounds dry. Then season with salt & pepper before transferring into your heated pan.each, salt & pepper
Classic Creamy Fondant Potatoes
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (218°C) and bring your cast iron skillet (or other heavy bottomed oven safe skillet) with olive oil to medium heat on the stove top.2 tablespoon olive oil
- Place cut potato rounds in your heated pan, and cook until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook the second side until also golden brown. Add butter and melt in the skillet, spooning over the first browned side of the potatoes. Add chives (and optional garlic cloves).2 tablespoon butter, ½ tablespoon fresh or dried chives, 4 cloves garlic
- Pour the chicken (or vegetable) stock into the skillet with the potato rounds and transfer skillet to your preheated oven.2 cups chicken stock
- Cook the fondant potatoes for about 30 minutes, or until the 'white' portion of the middle has become more white and the potatoes are tender inside. *If too much stock has evaporated during cooking, add more as needed. You will want only a couple of tablespoons of the stock left over to serve with the fondant potatoes. **If there is too much stock left over when the potatoes are done cooking, remove the fondant potatoes to a plate and return the pan with stock to the oven to allow more stock to evaporate off.
