- 10 oz of small potatoes
- 1 tsp of butter
- 1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp of brown sugar
- Juice of 1 small orange
- ½ cup of red wine
- Black pepper
I found this dish a few weeks ago in a blog and immediately I kept the idea for a dinner, adapting a little. Caramelized potatoes garnished with orange and red wine is a simple side dish but with a twist that I think makes them very suitable for a unique dinner.
Ideally, use small potatoes thin skin, which can eat almost a mouthful, but the recipe would also be great with something larger potatoes halved or cut into pieces. If you do not like sage you can use another herb such as marjoram.
See how to make caramelized potatoes garnished with orange and red wine:
1. Wash and dry the potatoes, leaving the skin. Heat them in a pan or casserole with butter and olive oil. When the butter has melted, add the potatoes with a little salt, reduce heat and cover. Let cook about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Add brown sugar and cook a few minutes. Add sage and thyme, sprinkle with orange juice and wine and cook over high heat until much of the liquid is reduced.
3. Cover, reduce to a minimum and let a few more minutes for the remaining juice concentrate. Season to taste and serve hot.
Alright, we finish to make caramelized potatoes garnished with orange and red wine, now its time to eat and delight.
