Rösti With Mushrooms In Cream

>
>
Life  is all about the crispy bits………….. 🙂
Most folks would probably agree with this statement, especially when we’re talking food, and of course especially when we are talking fried, baked or sautéed  potatoes. And, in my own, humble opinion, of all the great potato dishes, the undisputed king is “Rösti”. Crispy on the outside, soft and buttery on the inside, it is a most versatile dish which can be enjoyed as a main course with just a fried egg on top and a green side salad, or as a side dish for such dishes as  Zürcher Geschnetzeltes,  Gulasch or  Creamed Mushrooms, as shown below.
There are  Rösti which are enhanced with such mixed-in goodies as cheese, herbs, grated onions, bacon and so forth. Yet for me, at least in the case of  Rösti, simple is best, so I prefer the basic version – grated potatoes, seasoned with kosher salt and cayenne pepper and sautéed in duck fat – voilà . There is also the divide between advocates of using raw shredded potatoes versus the Rösti enthusiasts who insist on parboiled potatoes. While both versions have the potential to be wonderful, I myself prefer the parboiled potato version, which has a less starchy taste.

Rib Eye, Rösti & Onion Marmalade



Sometimes  I wonder why I don’t prepare my favorite dishes more often, especially when they are as easy and quick to do as  Rösti.
Add a great steak and onion and you’ll own the world, at least for the moment. 🙂
