My DH has to have this whenever I make his German Hamburger Patties. It is a recipe that his Mother and Oma always made. It is on the bland side but he likes to eat it with some ketchup.
- Peel and dice potatoes.
- Chop onion.
- Heat shortening in skillet.
- Add potatoes and onion.
- Fry until almost crisp.
- Add water.
- Cover skillet.
- Stir frequently.
- Steam until most of liquid is gone.
I made this for lunch and served it with smoked sausage and it made for a wonderful meal. I already had my slicer attachment on my KitchenAid, so decided just to slice them, rather than dicing them. The only other changes I made was to use part butter and part crisco and to add some seasoning after cooking. I found them bland without any seasoning, but otherwise fully enjoyed the potatoes!!! Made for Gimme 5 Tag.
After reading the reviews I tried somethig different, I really dont like to change other Zaar members recipes around but I tried 1tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon shortening to see if this would work. # out of 4 of us thought this was great while 1 thought it was just okay. I thought that the flavor was pretty good and will try again. This was a great compliment to leftover turkey tonight. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
I needed more flavor. We love the crunchy/crispy version. It's the same thing without adding the water and probably coz it's so full of flavor I didn't care much about this. Maybe some garlic added just before it's ready might spice it up a little.
