A Very Different NS Stir Fried Potato
Nova Scotian Stir Fried Potato Slices
From Anita Stewart's Canada: The Food/The Recipes/The Stories
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 8-10 minutes
4 potatoes (I like Yukon Gold), peeled & thinly sliced
2 tbsp canola oil
2-3 green onions, chopped
3 slices fresh ginger, minced
2 tsp light soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
3 tbsp water
1 clove garlic, minced
1. Place sliced potatoes in a bowl of cold water, rinse, add more cold water to cover the potatoes and let stand for 2 minutes.
2. Get all the other ingredients ready and heat oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat.
3. Add the green onions and ginger to the oil, stir fry for a few seconds and add the potato slices. Toss about and stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the soy sauce, pepper and water. Cover and reduce heat to medium to simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic when the potatoes are tender and stir over heat for 30 seconds or so… just long enough to lose the bitterness of the garlic.
This is great as a side for steak and make enough for leftovers because the potatoes along with some crispy bacon or pancetta will make an awesome frittata.
