One Pan Lyonaise Potatoes
Serves 4


  • 600g potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 20g butter
  • 200g leftover roast beef
  • 1tsp thyme leaves
  • 350ml fresh beef stock (fresh works best but a stock cube is fine)


The easiest way to slice your potatoes thinly is by way of a mandolin. Alternatively take your time and use a sharp knife making sure your all your potato slices are of similar size.

Take a medium/large frying pan and melt the butter and once fizzing add the onions and garlic, cook until soft. Remove from the pan.

Using the same pan, add a layer of potatoes, followed by 1/3 of the roast beef, 1/3 of the onion and garlic mixture and 1/3 of the thyme. Repeat twice building up the layers finishing with a layer of potato.

Pour in the beef stock slowly and pop a lid on and simmer away for about 15 minutes.

As the potatoes are nearer the end of their cooking turn your grill onto high.

Pop the pan under the grill to crisp up the top of the dish and serve.

Tip: If you fancy, replace the beef stock with chicken stock and the leftover beef with left over chicken and cook in the same way.
