Recipe by Chef John
"You know a potato side dish is going to be good when 75% of the name refers to fat or meat. These super-crusty, oven-fried potato wedges, or ‘steak fries' as they call them where I'm from, are done with rendered duck fat, and while I'm a big fan of ones done with olive oil and/or butter, these really are better."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Another winner! Simple and so, so delicious. Thank you, Chef John!
A co-worker made them- I couldn't stop eating them. Crisp, flavorful and delicious!
So decadently delicious !
Amazing crisp out of the oven. Yuuuuummmm!!!
I just made these using olive oil since I didn't happen to have any duck fat on hand. I also used Yukon gold and red potatoes. Turned out FANTASTIC!! Will make again and again!! :) Thanks!
