New York Strip Loin Roast with Patates Plaki

I love just about everything Greek, especially potatoes.  

Patates Plaki is a wonderful roasted potato recipe that I found on one of my favourite blogs -

Kalofagas is hosted by Peter Minakis, a fellow Canadian out of Toronto.  Peter shares his love of food, especially Greek.   His recipes never disappoint.

The potatoes were served as a side 

with a roasted New York Strip Loin.

(serves 4-6)

6 large Yukon Gold (or other yellow potatoes, peeled and quartered)

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2-3 cloves of garlic, smashed

1 medium onion, roughly chopped

1/2 red bell pepper, sliced

1/2 green bell pepper, sliced

1/2 carrot, halved lengthwise then sliced

1 large ripe tomato, passed through a box grater (or 3/4 cup vegetable cocktail)

1 tsp. sweet paprika

1 tsp. Boukovo (chilli flakes)

2 bay leaves

1 cup hot chicken or vegetable stock

1-2 tsp. coarse sea salt

1 tsp. fresh ground pepper

1 tsp. dried Greek oregano

Pre-heated 425F oven

Pre-heat your oven and set the rack to the middle position. In medium-sized deep baking dish add the potatoes, garlic, onions, peppers, carrot, grated tomato, paprika, bay leaves, ground pepper, Boukovo, oregano and toss to coat. Add the hot stock, mix well and taste and add salt to taste and more ground pepper and stir-in.
Drizzle with olive oil (be generous) and place in your pre-heated oven for 45-50 minutes or until potato-tops are crisp but there’s still some sauce in the dish.
Carefully remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Good crusty bread is recommended for dunking.


  1. This looks wonderful.I've never been disappointed with a recipe that came from Peter's hand. Your photos of this dish are breathtaking. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Ann, I've never made potatoes this way ~ but I'm certainly going to give it a go soon. That is a divine dinner you prepared (as always.) xo

    I, too, have never been disappointed with anything Peter has shared.

  3. Amazing...Ann, you never disappoint! I can't wait to make this dish this weekend with a Greek marinated grilled chicken. I sent the recipe to a few of my Vegan relatives.

  4. Another mouthwatering dinner, Ann. You have the magic touch with beef and this beautiful potato dish is the perfect side.

  5. Thanks for your comment Ann! I like to think I have the cooking gene too, but after looking at all the food you cook, I think I'll practice some more! This recipe is definitely something I will be making. I only have one question...How do you and your husband stay in shape!?!?!?!?!?! =)
