Braised Spring Potatoes with Garlic
The secret to this simple and quick braised recipe is the chicken stock, which reduces down to a syrup, coating the potatoes in a meaty glaze.
1½ pounds small spring potatoes, such as this week’s Huckleberry Golds, rinsed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chicken stock
3 garlic cloves
½ tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Cut potatoes in half and place in a pot, fitting them into a snug, single layer. Pout in the olive oil and chicken stock. Add garlic cloves and a pinch of salt and pepper.
2. Cover the pot and bring the stock to a simmer. Reduce heat to a medium-low and cook for 20 minutes.
3. Remove lid, turn up heat to high and cook until liquid reduces, becomes thick and start to coat the potatoes. Stir occasionally. Plate potatoes and sprinkle with chopped rosemary; season with salt and pepper to taste.
