A side dish to treasure from Strip House

The swanky Strip House’s potatoes Romanoff are an easy crowd-pleaser.

Along with black truffle creamed spinach (obviously), the similarly guilt-inducing potatoes Romanoff is the side dish of choice at Planet Hollywood’s swanky Strip House steakhouse. It’s a cheesy, decadent complement to a char-grilled steak, and a rightfully rich dish for this occasionally overlooked, ribald room covered in red. But these spuds will taste just as good coming from your kitchen.

Strip House Planet Hollywood, 702-737-5200. Sunday-Thursday, 5-11 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 5-11:30 p.m.

Potatoes Romanoff

(serves 4 or more)


3 lbs. cold baked potatoes

7 shallots, minced

1 lb. cheddar cheese, grated

1 lb. sour cream

1 tbsp. kosher salt

½ tbsp. ground white pepper

Method: In a large mixing bowl, gently incorporate the potatoes, minced shallots and three quarters of the grated cheddar cheese. Mix in the salt and pepper. Add half the sour cream with a folding motion, trying not to stir vigorously. Add in the remaining sour cream and gently mix.

Place this mixture in a buttered 6-by-9-inch casserole dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over the top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove the foil and let the top cook to a golden brown. Serve.
