I've got sweet potatoes coming on like crazy and so am trying this and other recipes. Beer-Soaked Sweet Potato Fries 1 lb sweet potatoes (or mix of white and sweet potato, apparently Russets make crispier beer fries), scrubbed and cut into thin fries (leave skin on) 1 bottle beer (300mL) (any beer will work, we used a lime pale lager) 3 cloves garlic, pressed 1.5 tbsp coconut oil 1/2 tsp coarse salt freshly ground pepper, to taste 1. Preheat oven to 425F. 2. Place cut fries into a large bowl and cover in beer. Set aside and allow to marinate for 15 minutes. 3. Drain beer and toss with garlic, oil, salt and pepper. 4. Place fries in a single layer on a silpat-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until browned and crispy.
