Poor Man’s Potatoes

Cut the potatoes into medium-sized slices (6 or 7 mm. thick). Slice the onions, peppers and garlic cloves into julienne strips.patatas-a-lo-pobre

Then, with a knife, scrape the inside of the dried peppers (after being soaked for 5 hours) to remove the flesh.

Heat the extra-virgin olive oil in a large pot. Once the oil is hot, add all the sliced vegetables. Let them cook for 5 minutes before adding the meat (cut into medium-sized chunks), the wines and the dried pepper flesh.

Cover with water and bring to a boil. Skim off any foam. Then, add the spices and boil until tender (approximately 1 hour).

If the broth reduces too much, you can add a little hot water, but adjusting the salt to taste.
