Saying leftover dinner to a roast beef and fried potatoes is a big deal, isn’t it? But with us it is, but a really delicious one!
Because when I make a roast beef, I always make sure that I get a larger piece than I actually need and save myself the main work because I only need to prepare it once.
So if I then want to make my roast beef with fried potatoes, then I basically only have to prepare the fried potatoes. I think that’s fabulous! So if that’s not food for days, then I don’t know what is. 🙂
What is the best way to store the roast beef?
Once the roast beef has cooled down, I wrap it in aluminum foil and then put it in the fridge until I need it for further processing. Since I really only take it out of the fridge just before serving, it’s also easier to cut it into thin slices.
What is important when preparing fried potatoes?
The right type of potato is the key factor when preparing fried potatoes. When I get them, I always take the Annabelle or Linda variety. They’re waxy and have a great flavour that just makes all the difference. Try it if you can!
For me, fried potatoes taste best when they are wafer-thin and crispy! But how do you get them so thin? It’s easy with a vegetable mandolin! This is a grater that makes wafer-thin slices of potatoes. Moisten the mandolin briefly before you use it, and then you’re good to go! But please watch your fingers, they are really sharp.
I like to serve with the roast beef and fried potatoes a crunchy green salad and a dab of horseradish. Precious!
