  • 6 large red skinned potatoes cut into bite size cubes
  • 1/2 cup malt vinegar plus more to taste do not substitute for any other type of vinegar
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil + 1 tbsp.
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped
  • salt pepper to taste


  • Spread 1/4 cup peanut oil on a baking sheet and place in a cold oven. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with the pan in the oven.
  • Meanwhile, place your diced potatoes in a pan covered with water. Salt the water and then put on high heat. Bring to a boil and boil for 5-8 minutes, or just until fork tender.
  • Drain and towel off until dry.
  • Remove pan from the hot oven and spread potatoes on pan. Be careful because the oil may splatter. Do not stir potatoes, let them sear to the pan.
  • Roast for 10 minutes or until they start to brown.
  • Remove from oven and add in malt vinegar, tbsp. of peanut oil, and green onions. Stir and then add salt and pepper.
  • Serve immediately or let sit and serve at room temperature. Add more vinegar if desired. I added a few more splashes right before serving.


Save in the fridge in an airtight container.
