Last nights supper was smoked St. Louis style ribs, raw fried potatoes, and green beans. Ribs are from a supply vacuumed sealed and frozen. Green beans from the garden that were canned last August. Thawed the ribs in cold water and heated in the microwave to bring them to warm. Less than two minutes. Green beans warmed on the stove top to hot with only low heat. No boiling. Diced raw potato browned on the stovetop in a frying pan.
I have found raw fries brown and crisp better if the diced potatoes are oiled in a bowl, then added to a medium hot pan. The excess oil and moisture from the potatoes is left in the bowl. No oil makes it to the plate.
The beer was an amber pale ale.
