Cut potatoes into ΒΌ-inch sticks and toss with the garlic oil. Add soy, vinegar, and Tabasco and toss again.

Spread fries into a single layer on the cookie sheet and grind pepper over them.

Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven, and shake/stir to turn the fries over. Continue baking another 10 minutes, shake again, and return to over for another 10 minutes.

Check fries to see if they are ready – brown and slightly crispy on the ends. If not, return to oven and check every few minutes until done.
