Instructions

Make Homemade French Fries

  • Rinse and peel the potatoes, and slice them into 1/2-inch thick strips.
  • Soak the sliced potatoes in cold water for at least an hour (or overnight).
  • Rinse them twice with cold water and pat dry completely with paper towels.
  • Heat oil in a deep fryer or a large heavy pan to 325 degrees. Carefully add the potato slices in small batches and fry for about 3 minutes until pale and softened. (Make sure not to overcrowd the pan)
  • Use a slotted spoon to place them on a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Increase the temperature to 400 degrees. Carefully add the fries again and fry in batches until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Use the slotted spoon to remove them from oil and place on paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with salt.

Cook Beef Sausages:

  • Cut your sausages into bite-sized pieces.
  • Heat up the skillet on medium heat. Once hot, add the sausage into the skillet with no water, butter, or oil.
  • Turn them occasionally. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until they cook evenly on all sides. Remove from heat.

Make Salchipapas:

  • Add cooked French fries into the skillet, and mix with the cooked sausages
  • Drizzle with condiments of your choice such as ketchup and mustard. Serve immediately.
