FRIED IRISH POTATOES
Canned Irish potatoes pan-fried with green pepper, smoked paprika and rosemary, fresh garlic and ginger! Easy, quick and good!
3 T. liquid alternative butter or vegetable oil
2 c. diced green pepper (I used frozen – thaw, drain and squeeze to remove excess water from freezing)
2, 15 oz. cans Whole Irish Potatoes; drain well, cut into bite size pieces, then dry outside surfaces with paper towels, by lining bowl with several layers, and dropping in potato cubes, covering and shaking – I used Our Family brand
salt, pepper, smoked paprika, ground dried rosemary
fresh chopped garlic and ginger
ketchup or barbecue sauce
In large skillet, over medium heat, melt oil.
Add green pepper, salt to taste and saute till partially wilted.
Add dried potato cubes all at once in an even layer in the pan. Don’t stir or flip till bottom surface is golden brown.
While you wait, sprinkle tops of potato cubes evenly with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and ground rosemary – to taste
Flip the potatoes, stirring to evenly coat the spices and herb. Brown again by evenly distributing potatoes and waiting till they do their thing.
Raise heat to medium high for a short time to get an extra crisp on some cubes.
Add the fresh garlic and ginger during last 3-4 minutes of cooking.
Serve with ketchup or barbecue sauce.
Notes: This is how Steve likes his fried potatoes. Yes, he likes the canned ones. They are creamy and they don’t require much fuss nor time to make.
Onions good too with the peppers.
