  • Potato Pepper Recipe
    This potato and pepper recipe was given to us by Andrew Fairlie the head chef at Gleneagles, Scotland. It makes a delicious companion to rib eye steaks. Rooster potatoes are recommended and on their website it is called grilled rib eye of beef with basquasie roosters. This will serve four.

    Potato And Peppers Recipe

    4 thick cut rib eye steaks
    650g Roosters
    4 tablespoons vegetable oil
    25g butter
    1 red pepper which has been halved and deseeded
    1 crushed garlic clove
    12 black olives
    1 tablespoon chopped parsley
    Salt and pepper for seasoning

    I have published a book which tells the story of The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital which reveals her origins in the QAIMNS and where she meets a QA veteran of Afghanistan. She still walks her wards and tells her story by taking Scott Grey, a QARANC nurse, to the battlefields of World War One and beyond. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by CG Buswell. Each book will feature different Scottish food and a favourite meal. Read the first chapter for free.

    Potato And Pepper

    Wash the Roosters and then cook them whole and unpeeled in a large pan of boiling salted water until they are almost cooked.

    Drain the water and set aside the tatties to cool.

    Cut them into 1cm wide slices.

    Now brush the skin side of the red pepper with oil and place onto a tray. Cook under a hot grill until the skin blisters and blackens.

    Peel off the skin and cut the remainder into strips.

    Heat a large frying pan with vegetable oil and place the sliced Rooster potatoes evenly into the hot oil and fry until they become golden brown.

    Turn them over and fry the other side until they too become golden brown.

    Add the butter to the cooking potatoes. Wait until the butter has foamed and then add the peppers, garlic, olives and seasoning and toss together.

    Serve with grilled steak and garnish with chopped parsley.
