These are classic homemade french fries with a must-try dipping sauce. The recipe is very straightforward with just two steps and uses everyday, simple ingredients.
Homemade french fries are a must. What else are you supposed to do, when at 1 am, you suddenly get french fry cravings and all of your local eateries are closed? Therefore, it’s an essential skill to know how to make french fries at home. I’ve tried both baking and pan-frying french fries, and I just don’t like the baked ones. Just not the same. The results are more unpredictable. So I suggest you pan fry these and you’ll never want to eat restaurant or frozen french fries again!
At a minimum, all you need are two humble Russet potatoes. They might be in your kitchen already.
But enough about the potatoes. The real winner here is the sauce. It’s always about the sauce, right? The french fry, as delicious as it is, is only a mere vehicle in which to get more of this sriracha mayo sauce into my system. This sriracha mayo has a bit of heat, a mild sour note, and GARLIC. Yes. Also a tad bit of soy sauce for added savoriness. I like it best cold, so I make the sauce first and leave it in the fridge while I continue making a frying mess in the kitchen. Enjoy!
