What is the best potato for pan frying?

Frying potatoes

Frying potatoes

I have tried every recipe I can find to make "Fried Potatoes" the way my mother did it in the 60's! I can't get it! I want to fry them in a regular pan (no nonstick).

I have tried covering them and uncovering them! I have tried low heat and high heat! I am thinking it isn't the technique but the variety of potato. Which one is best for "Fried Potatoes"?


Answer:

Hello,

You can use Yukon gold or Russet potatoes, which are more common. To make fried potatoes you must preheat the frying pan with oil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then place the raw dry sliced potatoes into the frying pan.



When the pan is covered with a regular lid it can create a vapor which can go back to the frying pan and cause a spill. Is better to leave it uncovered.
