Cameroon Hot Pot Potatoes! The name gives it away, a steaming one pot dish of potatoes cooked in tomato sauce, fresh herbs and lots of vegetables; carrots, green beans, peppers and more. Its that one pot meal that will definitely feed a crowd and get them talking. If I remember right it was usually one of our Sunday lunch meals. After lunch, what’s more to do other than sit around and watch movies with full , happy bellies! Nothing wrong with a having a lazy Sunday.
Prep starts with peeling some Irish (or Idaho) potatoes and slicing them into big chunks. Traditionally, the potatoes are then parboiled (sometimes) and deep fried until they are golden brown. With this recipe I decided to broil the potatoes after parboiling.
Like most of my meals, you can make this dish your own based on your dietary preference. You can make it vegan, vegetarian or load it up with meats of your choice. Settling with some jumbo shrimp was a great choice for extra protein. Quick and Easy. Whatever meats you choose will affect cook time, feel free to reach out if you have questions.
As delicious and mouth watering as it might look; or maybe you are just super hungry , its best to let it cool a tart before digging in . It really is one hot pot of stewed potatoes and it would be a shame if you can’t taste your meal through out because your first bite ruined it for you. Unfortunately I’ve been a victim of fried taste buds because I was too eager to take a bite. I guess there is a reason for the “HOT” in hot pot potatoes . Hope you get to invite some friends over, try this dish and enjoy it like we did. Nothing beats good food and good company!
