Okay, I hope you guys are ready to cook with some serious precision. ;)
We made these over the weekend and they were excellent. And easy. Perfect for summer BBQs. We got a grill pan like this one last summer and use it all the time but if you don't have something similar, you could wrap these in tinfoil, seal it tight and throw it on the grill. Just be sure to shake it up a few times (or stir the items in your grill pan) so things cook up evenly.
You will need :
- 1 large sweet potato
- olive oil
- minced fresh garlic (I used four cloves but I'm sort of addicted to garlic)
Cut your sweet potato into thin strips. This part is a hassle (I would recommend using a rotary cutter sharp knife) and the thinner (more french fry like) the better. They obviously DO NOT have to be the same length, but same general thickness will help them cook up well.
Douse in a decent coat of olive oil (use your hands to really cover them). Some will drip off, so it's okay to go a little heavy here.
Add a good amount of salt and pepper and as much fresh minced garlic as you prefer.
Throw them in your grill pan (or tinfoil) and cook on the grill for about 20 minutes, stirring (or shaking) occasionally. We had our grill at about 400*F. Maybe after 20 minutes, try one and see if they need more time.
