DSC_0226

Every once in a while you make a side dish that simply eclipses the rest of the meal, our test kitchen happened to do just that the other week. ¬†Today we’re bringing you guys yet another delicious way to sample our Jerk Marinade with some jerk seasoned fries. These spicy crispy hand cut fries¬†are the perfect way to elevate a meal.

We truly mean it when we say that these fries make a great side and in the test kitchen we paired them with some slow cooked barbecue pulled pork and ice cold beers for a delicious and wholesome Friday night meal.

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 Unpeeled Potatoes
  • 2 Tbs Jerk Sauce
  • 3 Tbs Olive Oil (And more to cover)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450.
  2. Slice potatoes into your preferred french fry shape (both wedges and standard julienne cut fries work).
  3. [Recommended] An hour before preparing, soak cut fries in water (this will help them crisp).
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil and jerk sauce.
  5. Drizzle oil and jerk mixture over cut fries, and then slowly drizzle additional olive oil, filling in around the oil-jerk mixture.
  6. Using your hands, turn the fries repeatedly until they are well coated.
  7. Cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil and spread cut fries evenly.
  8. Cook fries in the oven for 35 minutes, flipping halfway.
