Lemon Oregano Potatoes

I love roasted potatoes. My Aunt Paula married a restaurateur of Greek decent. When I visit my parents in Florida , we often get together. Uncle Simon made these amazing potatoes at a dinner party, I was in heaven. The recipe below is very quick and simple to produce. Serve these potatoes with roasted chicken, pork, beef, or veal.


4 large baking potatoes peeled and cut into pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup Lemon juice
4 garlic cloves, smashed
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, crumbled
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup beef stock or chicken stock


Preheat oven to 500°F.

Place the potatoes in an oven proof skillet. Add the oil, garlic, lemon juice,dried oregano, salt and pepper and toss

Add the stock to the skillet, enough to come halfway up the sides of the potatoes. Cover and Boil for 5 minutes.

Take skillet off the stove and place in the oven and roast for 30-40 minutes until tender.
