I am making beef tenderloin for christmas dinner, and was thinking of making roasted potatoes for one of my side dishes. I would love to find a recipe for lovely crispy roasted potatoes but i'm having a really hard time reconciling the oven temp.
I had planned to use the recipe for tenderloin from Cook's Illustrated, which calls for a 300 degree oven and finishing by pan searing for a nice crust. But the recipes I find for crispy potatoes call for a much hotter oven and about an hour of cooking time.
What to do?
