These are the potatoes I made for Kat's pre-birthday birthday party a couple of weeks ago. Everyone seemed to enjoy them, so I'm sure I'll be making them again.
Tangy, Spicy Pan-Fried Potatoes
1 pound russet potatoes
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
4 slices pickled jalapenos, minced
2-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander (I crushed some whole seeds)
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
3 Tablespoons peanut oil (or oil of choice)
1/4 cup rice vinegar (I used my home-infused chive blossom vinegar)
3 Tablespoons water
Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Place in a large bowl; toss with onion, garlic powder, jalapeno, cumin, coriander and salt.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Cook potatoes over medium to high heat 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently and scraping browned bits from pan. Add rice vinegar and water. Continue to cook until all liquid is evaporated and potatoes are tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
Serves 4. Can add bits of leftover chopped meat to make a hearty side dish for 2.
