Stovies = a traditional Scottish dish made with leftovers from the Sunday roast! Quick, easy and delicious. Although cleaning the pan after-wards isn’t that much fun..
Let me start with a confession, I don’t make stovies the ‘traditional’ way. Like everything else that comes out of my kitchen, they are made to my own unique recipe. However, (without sounding big headed) they taste pretty damn good.
What you’ll need:
*a large saucepan with lid
*oil (olive or vegetable)\
*1 large onion
*8-10 large potatoes [tatties]
*1 pint of beef stock
*left over gravy
*left over meat
*beetroot and oatcakes (they are different in Scotland, try Walkers variety from Pete’s Frootique) to serve
1) Chop an onion into fairly small pieces and soften in some oil
2)Peel and then slice 8-10 potatoes (no hard and fast rule, the more potatoes, the more stovies you’ll end up with) into rounds
3)Add potatoes into the pan with the onions. Stir and remove from the heat. (more…)
