Potato rosti, ham and sorrel sauce

all details

We used metal egg-frying rings to give the rosti an even shape. Instead, you could make them into patties with your hands before placing them in the pan.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium desiree potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
  • salt
  • pepper
  • vegetable oil
  • ½ medium brown onion, sliced
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • 6 parsley stalks
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and squashed
  • 200ml white wine
  • 200ml cream
  • 2 cups picked sorrel leaves (or use spinach instead)
  • 50g butter
  • 4 thick ham slices
  •  

Method

Squeeze excess moisture out of potatoes with your hands and season. Heat a little vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan. Place metal rings in pan and fill with potato, pressing down firmly. Cook on a medium-to-low heat for 10 minutes, remove ring and turn over. Cook for a further 10 minutes or until both sides are golden brown.

Place onion, thyme, parsley, garlic and wine in a saucepan and reduce wine to a syrup. Add cream and simmer for five minutes. Strain and place in a clean saucepan.

Cook sorrel in butter and drain on paper towel. Add to cream sauce, season and warm through. Place rosti and ham on plates and spoon over sorrel sauce.
