These crispy duck fat smashed potatoes have a crisp exterior and soft and tender interior thanks to a two-stage steam-then-roast cook in the Anova Precision Oven. The duck fat gives these potatoes a deliciously rich flavor, making them a perfect side dish for any meaty protein, such as prime rib or steak.
