Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 5 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch-by-1/4-inch sticks 
  • Salt 

Directions

In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, add 1/4 inch oil. When the oil begins to smoke, carefully add one-third of the potatoes and fry until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted flat spatula, carefully flip the potatoes over and continue to fry until golden brown, another 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the fried potatoes to a paper towel-lined plate. Season with salt. Repeat the process with the remaining potatoes. Transfer to a serving platter.
