FLEMISH FRITES - BELGIAN FRIES WITH ANDALOUSE SAUCE



Flemish Frites - Belgian Fries with Andalouse Sauce image

Belgian fries are cooked twice for a soft middle and crisp outside and served with a mayo sauce called 'Andalouse' that can be best described as vaguely similar to Thousand Island dressing. The sauce makes a great chip dip or vegetable dip as well. We go through so much of it, I double it! My husband's family is Belgian, Flemish to be exact. I am told Flemish is equated with quality. This is a snack that is worth the time and effort! Since this is all about quality, be sure to use firm, fresh potatoes. Bring the sauce to room temperature before serving.

Time 9h10m

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1 tablespoon minced green bell pepper
1 tablespoon minced red bell pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch strips
4 cups olive oil for frying, or as needed
salt to taste

Steps:

  • Stir mayonnaise, tomato paste, red onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, lemon juice, and salt together in a bowl. Cover the Andalouse sauce with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  • Submerge potato strips in a bowl of ice water; rinse potatoes in several changes of cold water until water in the bowl is clear. Drain potatoes and pat dry.
  • Working in batches, fry potatoes in the hot oil until just cooked through but still white, about 5 minutes. Transfer fries to a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Bring oil back to temperature between batches. Cool potatoes to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
  • Increase oil temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Working in batches, fry the potatoes again until deep golden, 5 to 10 minutes more. Transfer fries to a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Season fries with salt and serve with Andalouse sauce.

THE ONE AND ONLY TRULY BELGIAN FRIES



The One and Only Truly Belgian Fries image

There is no fancy skill involved in making these crispy fries, but there is a trick. The potatoes are fried twice. The first time cooks them through and makes them tender. The second time, which can be done hours later just before serving, turns them golden brown and deliciously crisp.

Categories     Potato     Side     Fry     Sugar Conscious     Vegan     Vegetarian     Pescatarian     Dairy Free     Wheat/Gluten-Free     Peanut Free     Tree Nut Free     Soy Free     No Sugar Added     Kosher

Yield Serves 4 to 6

Number Of Ingredients 3

3 to 4 cups vegetable oil for frying
2 pounds Idaho or russet baking potatoes or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, rinsed and dried
salt to taste

Steps:

  • Pour enough oil into a deep fryer to reach at least halfway up the sides of the pan but not more than three-quarters of the way up. Heat the oil to 325°F.
  • Cut the potatoes into sticks 1/2 inch wide and 2 1/2 to 3 inches long. Dry all the pieces thoroughly in a clean dish towel. This will keep th oil from splattering. Divide the potato sticks into batches of no more than 1 cup each. Do not fry more than one batch at a time.
  • When the oil has reached the desired temperature, fry the potatoes for 4 to 5 minutes per batch. They should be lightly colored but not browned. If your fryer has a basket, simply lift it out the remove the fried potatoes. Otherwise, use a long-handled skimmer to lift out the potatoes. Be sure to bring the temperature of the oil back to 325°F in between batches. At this point the fries can rest for several hours at room temperature until you are almost ready to serve them.
  • Heat the oil to 325°F. Fry the potatoes in 1-cup batches until they are nicely browned and crisp, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on fresh paper towels or brown paper bags and place in a warmed serving bowl lined with more paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and serve. Never cover the potatoes to keep them hot as they will immediately turn soft and limp. If you are inclined to perfectionism, leave some potatoes to fry halfway through the meal so you can serve them crisp and piping hot.

BELGIAN FRIES



Belgian fries image

Proper Belgian fries made from scratch. Delicious on their own, or a great side dish for stoofvlees (Flemish beef stew). Serves 4 as a side.

Provided by thechirpychef

Time 3h

Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 4

1.75 kilos waxy potatoes
1.5l corn oil (or any other flavourless vegetable oil)
salt
mayonnaise (to serve)

Steps:

  • Peel and rinse the potatoes. Then, it's off to the chopping board! Start by cutting your potatoes lengthwise (make sure your discs are not too thick), then slice the discs into fries of roughly the same thickness. Don't worry if you end up with a few oddballs. Belgian fries are very forgiving. ^^
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil and fill another pot with ice water.
  • Once the water comes to a boil, add a teaspoon of salt. Add one big slotted spoon worth of raw fries to the boiling water and blanch them for 5 minutes. Remove with the slotted spoon and dunk into the ice water bath before putting them on a clean dish cloth/kitchen towel. Pat them dry. You want to get rid of any moisture before you start frying. Repeat until your entire batch of raw fries has been blanched. [I should add that not everyone blanches their fries. As potatoes have a high sugar content, they tend to turn dark brown when frying. By blanching them the sugar content is reduced and they'll get a nice golden colour.]
  • OPTIONAL: I tend to go the extra mile and arrange individual fries to air-dry for a few minutes after patting them dry, just to make sure they're nice and dry before I start pre-frying them. We take our fries seriously in Belgium. Can you tell?
  • Frying happens in two stages. You can use a deep-frier for this or a wok. I used a wok. Pre-frying: heat 1 litre of the oil until it reaches 150°C and start frying in small batches (one heaped slotted spoon at a time) for 6 minutes each. If using a wok, make sure you check the oil's temperature after each batch. After pre-frying, put the fries in a bowl with some kitchen roll to draw out the excess oil. Your fries will start to look yellow at this stage but not golden yet. [If making a large batch, you can freeze the fries after this step and save them for another day. They keep in the freezer for 6 months. You can also store them in the fridge until later on (if using the same day). If you're looking to fry the full batch, move on to step 6.]
  • As soon as your fries have been pre-fried, it's time to turn up the heat. Add the remaining 0.5 litre of oil to the hot oil in the wok and heat it up until it reaches at least 180°C. It's best to keep the flame a bit higher throughout the second fry compared to the pre-frying stage. Keep an eye on that temperature, and remember: the more room your fries have, the crispier they'll be in the end!
  • Fry in batches (6 minutes per batch) until nice and golden. When you take them out of the oil, you'll notice straight away whether they're crispy or not.
  • Transfer to a bowl with some kitchen roll and add a pinch of salt.
  • Serve with a good dollop of mayonnaise.

BELGIAN FRITES



Belgian Frites image

This recipe comes to us from chef Michael Formichella. Though Bintjes potatoes are ideal for frites, as they hold their shape and do not turn floury when fried, Idaho work almost as well.

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Appetizers     Finger Food Recipes

Number Of Ingredients 3

2 pounds potatoes, preferably Bintjes or Idaho, peeled and sliced lengthwise into 1/3-by-1/3-by-2 1/2-inch sticks
Vegetable oil, for frying
Fine sea salt, to taste

Steps:

  • Soak potatoes in cold water and cover for a minimum of 1 hour and up to 24 hours. Drain, and pat dry.
  • Heat 3 inches oil in a large stockpot to 275 degrees to 300 degrees. Line two baking sheets with paper towels. Blanch potatoes in small batches without crowding, turning occasionally, until completely cooked but barely colored, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes to one of the prepared baking sheets to drain in a single layer.
  • Increase oil temperature to 350 degrees to 360 degrees. Fry potatoes in small batches, turning occasionally, until crisp and golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt, and serve immediately.

STEAK-FRITES



Steak-Frites image

In Belgium, steak-frites is practically one word. A steak without a mountain of Belgian fries and a pint of fresh beer is unthinkable. The two signature dishes of Belgium are moules-frites (mussels with fries) and steak-frites. My grandfather Charles, a butcher all his life, always said to choose meat that is marbled with tiny veins of fat.

Provided by Ruth Van Waerebeek

Categories     Beef     Potato     Sauté     Quick & Easy

Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 5

4 beef steaks, such as porterhouse, sirloin, rib eye, shell or filet mignon (1/2 pound each and 3/4 to 1 inch thick), or one 2-pound steak
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon water
Belgian fries

Steps:

  • With a sharp knife, make small incisions, about 1 1/2 inches apart in the fat around the outside of each steak.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a large heavy skillet or sauté pan over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and sear for 1 minute on each side. Reduce the heat to medium. Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper and continue cooking, turning the steaks every other minute, until you see little pearls of blood come to the surface, about 6 to 8 minutes. The steaks should be cooked rare to medium for juicy, tender meat.
  • Remove the steaks and place them on warmed plates. Over medium heat, deglaze the pan with the water and swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Drizzle these pan juices over the meat and serve at once with fries.

BELGIAN FRIES (POMMES FRITES)



Belgian Fries (Pommes Frites) image

From Ruth Van Waerebeek's "Everybody Eats Well in Belgium Cookbook." There are other good frites recipes on Recipezaar; I'm including Ruth's for the sake of personal closure -- I can't NOT include her frites in my collection of her traditional Belgian recipes. What makes Ruth's unique is her call for older, starchy potatoes. As she says: "Never make fries with new potatoes.... It is imperative to use a starchy older potato for making real Belgian fries.... All your efforts will be in vain as the young potatoes have not had time to develop sufficient starch." She adds: "The size of the fries is a very personal matter. Experiment to find the size you like best." Adjust the frying time according to the thickness you prefer.

Categories     Potato

Time 54m

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 3

3 -4 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
2 lbs potatoes, peeled, rinsed, and dried (use Idaho, or russet baking potatoes, or Yukon Gold potatoes)
salt, to taste

Steps:

  • Pour enough oil into a deep fryer to reach at least halfway up the sides of the pan but not more than three-quarters of the way up. Heat oil to 325°F.
  • Cut the potatoes into sticks 1/2 inch wide and 2-1/2 to 3 inches long. Dry all the the pieces thoroughly in a clean dish towel. This will keep the oil from splattering. Divide the potato sticks into batches of no more than 1 cup each. Do not fry more than one batch at a time.
  • When the oil has reached the desired temperature, fry the potatoes for 4 or 5 minutes per batch. They should be lightly colored but not browned. If fryer has a basket, simply lift it out to remove the fried potatoes. Otherwise, use a long-handled skimmer to lift out the potatoes. Be sure to bring the temperature of the oil back to 325°F in between the batches. At this point the frites can rest for several hours at room temperature until you are almost ready to serve them.
  • Just prior to eating, heat the oil to 375°F Fry the potatoes in 1-cup batches until they are nicely browned and crisp, 1 to 2 minutes per batch. Drain on fresh paper towels or brown paper bags and place in a warmed serving bowl lined with more paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and serve. Never cover the potatoes to keep them hot as they will immediately turn soft and limp. If you are inclined to perfectionism, leave some potatoes to fry halfway through the meal so you can serve them crisp and hot.

AUTHENTIC BELGIAN FRIES ( FRENCH FRIES )



Authentic Belgian Fries ( French Fries ) image

The real deal , that takes a bit of effort , but is worth the trouble! You'll never have them any other way again. Also called "pommes frites" , "frieten" , "patat"

Provided by Dominique Depreux

Categories     Potato

Time 25m

Yield 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 3

hard vegetable fat (the kind is not as important as the fact it has to be hard. not oily)
2 lbs floury potatoes (not hard boiling, but floury .. the kind here is also subordinate to the flouriness, if you have a g)
1 pinch salt

Steps:

  • you will need an open (no lid) deep fryer , if you only have the kind with filters and lids , just don't close them, the steam has to be able to leave very fast else you loose crunchiness.
  • Peel your potatoes , and cut them lengthwise into discs of about 1/4 inch thick (they can be a bit thicker if you like that) . Then slice the discs lengthwise into fries of the same thickness.
  • Make sure your sink is clean , and wash your fries in cold water . Drain the water , and wash them again in new clean water. Repeat this a few times until no starch comes off the potatoes and the water stays clear. Dry your fries well , so there is no more moisture on their sides.
  • First cooking . Put the thermostat for your oil to approximately 320°F or 160°C , not higher . Put a small to medium amount of fries in the cooking basket ( you will have to do this multiple times , if you put in too much fries at once you will loose your temperature and your fries will turn out horrible) . Make sure all fries are under by shaking the basket . During cooking you can shake the basket a few times so you know they're not sticking together. Important: To check if the first cooking is done lift your basket out and pinch a fry if you can pinch all the way through they are done (if you do it fast you will certainly not burn your fingers ), they should still look pale and white , stay with your cooking for this , timing is important.(repeat until they are all done , and let your fat heat up to the appropriate temperature each time).
  • Take out the fries , shake them and put them in a big bowl to cool off , once they are cooled to room temperature they are ok to start the second cooking . you can keep these at room temperature for hours until you are ready to serve the meal , in fact leaving them a bit will only make them better , just put a towel over the bowl , no need to put them in the fridge(where condensationwould coat them).
  • Second cooking. Put the thermostat of your oil at approximately 370°F-374°F or 185°C-190°C , this is usually the highest setting , or just below that . Put a _small_ amount of the precooked fries in your basket . fry them while shaking the basket in the oil a few times during cooking , you can even take the basket out a few times to throw them in the air (not really needed , but supposed to be good tor making bubbles appear on them :) . They are ready when they are a rich golden brown in color . I put them in a deep plate with a paper towel at the bottom , and use a paper towel to quickly rub the excess fat off them before i serve(paper towel on top hand on paper towel , make a circular movement , take out towel). add a bit of fine salt , and serve. best with a T bone steak or sirloin *grinn* but as you know , fries go with just about anything :).
  • A bit of added history : The French will be the first to say that "les frites" come from Belgium. And it being true that Belgians have made and perfected the stuff for years and years, the origin of deep frying potatoes in oil comes from a monastery in Spain.
  • Smakelijk (bon appétit).
  • EDIT:.
  • Recently I found out that Bintje potatoes have become commonly available in the United States . These are without a doubt the best potatoes to use.
