I stumbled across a mention for Patatas a lo pobre (poor man's potatoes) in an old magazine so I decided to have a quick look on google to see what it was. It's a Spanish dish that is very quick and simple to throw together and which would go really well with most meat or fish dishes.
Patatas a lo pobre (poor man's potatoes)
2 large onions, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 large potatoes, diced (no need to peel them)
1 large green pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped
2 tbsp vinegar (sherry vinegar to be authentically Spanish but I used white wine vinegar)
100ml olive oil
1/2tsp sea salt
1tbsp freshly ground black pepper
2tbsp smoked paprika
1tbsp garlic granules
1tbsp Spanish seasoning
Put the chopped vegetables (onion, garlic, potatoes and green pepper) in a large bowl. Throw in all the spices and vinegar and mix until it's all evenly coated in spices.
Put the olive oil in a large pan - make sure there's enough to coat the bottom of the pan to help prevent the potatoes sticking. Heat the oil thenpour in the vegetables. Cook over a moderate heat for 20 minutes, stirring and scraping the potatoes off the bottom when they start to stick, until the potatoes are soft and totally cooked through.
I served mine with Turkish Kofte Meatballs - click through to see that recipe.
