1. Preheat oven to 450°. Boil the potatoes in a large pot of well-salted water until just cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Shake the pot back and forth to rough up the potatoes. Add the fat to the pot and shake the pot to coat the potatoes with the fat. Transfer the potatoes to a roasting pan.
2. Roast the potatoes until crisp and browned, about 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and serve immediately.
