Potatoes Paprikash
From: Matthew Foster - Canada

An alternate way to dress up potatoes. This recipe is based on a Hungarian recipe I used to make years ago

  • Vegetable Oil
  • Potatoes peeled and halved
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Black pepper
  • Paprika
  • Thyme
  • Chili Pepper Flakes or equivalent
  • can of tomatoes or equivalent
  • Salt
  • garlic powder
Put a few tablespoons of oil in a Dutch oven or large pan with a close fitting lid.
Heat the oil and add the potatoes. Fry over medium heat while turning to brown.
Add the onion and fry to soften
Add the garlic. (Do not overcook the garlic)
Liberally sprinkle with paprika
Add a little thyme
Add salt and pepper, pepper flakes and a little garlic powder
Add some water to stop the frying process
Add some tomatoes or tomato sauce
Add some more water. (note the water will boil away during the cooking process and leave a nice rich sauce)
Cover with a tight fitting lid
Cook slowly on the stove top for about 20 minutes stirring occasionally
Add a little water, as necessary, to keep the consistency of the sauce correct.

Cook the whole thing in the oven. This should take less attention than the stove top method.
Change the salt to ‘chicken flavour soup base’
Use a spicy tomato sauce
Vary the spices with Oregano or Marjoram or whatever suits you.
