Portuguese Roasted Potatoes

We went out on a limb and made these for the first time for friends. They were SO good. Very easy to do and very tasty. Be sure to let them get really brown so they have that crispy edge. --Mark


6 - 8 Potatoes (peeled, pierced and cut in half if large)
1 - 2 Links Chourico, (cut up)
1 Can Stewed Tomatoes
Onion (peeled and sliced)
Garlic (minced)
2 Bay Leaves
Crushed Red Pepper
Can of Beer or Red Wine


In deep frying pan add all ingredients except potatoes and chourico and simmer for 20 minutes. Place potatoes and chourico in roasting pan. Pour tomato mixture on potatoes. Cover and cook at 350° for about 1 hour, basting occasionally. When potatoes are almost done remove cover, baste, and cook to brown.


As with all good Portuguese recipes, most of the spices are "to taste." We like things spicy so we used a large amount of garlic, red pepper, etc. We made the potatoes with the beer and they turned out very well.
