Side Essentials: Spicy Cubed Potatoes and Onions

Andy Anderson !


I came up with this side for tonight’s dinner of grilled T-bone steaks. They are cubed golden potatoes, with a tangy/spicy sauce that stands up to something like a big T-bone. So yummy.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Side Essentials: Spicy Cubed Potatoes and Onions


  2. You can peel the potatoes, or leave them natural. In most cases, I like to leave the skins on.
  3. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Add the water tamari, honey, olive oil, leeks, and the potatoes in a saucepan, and then place over medium-high heat.
  5. Cover, and let boil for about 4 – 5 minutes, or until the potatoes are almost cooked.
  6. Add the remaining ingredients, and turn the heat down to low, low (just to keep them warm until serving).
  8. I like serving these potatoes with beef; however, you could experiment with other proteins. Sometimes, I will make them, and just eat them all by themselves. Enjoy.
  9. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
