After doing some serious research and development (and eating way too many french fries), we figured out a couple tricks to make the perfect copycat McDonald’s spuds. Beside the one secret you need to know for making the best french fries, McDonalds has a couple other surprises that set their potatoes apart from others.First, McDonald’s adds dextrose, which is just a fancy name for sugar, to their fries before they’re cooked. The added sugar caramelizes during the fry process which helps achieve that soft golden color that makes them so distinct. To do this at home, simply soak your cut potatoes (russets of course) in water mixed with a little corn syrup for 30 minutes. The other secret to McDonald’s perfectly tasty spuds is that they are flavored natural beef seasoning. A shortcut that we found yields a similar end product to the current version of the fries, but makes life much easier: adding some beef tallow (rendered beef fat) to the frying oil when cooking the potatoes for the second and final fry.
