A GERMAN POTATOES RECIPE YOU CAN MAKE IN YOUR RICE COOKER
Did you know German style potatoes are big in Japan? That’s right, they’re an izakaya staple – and one of the many Western style dishes you’ll find in the Japanese food lexicon.
And – of course – we’re always on the lookout for recipes we can alter just enough to make them in a rice cooker, while still retaining the essence and flavorful perfection of the original.
WHAT ARE GERMAN POTATOES?
German potatoes are simply fried potatoes and onions. Sometimes bacon is included for an added element of savory smokiness. The closest American dish we can think of for comparison is home fries.
For this rice cooker version, we’re jettisoning the bacon – and using savory vegetable stock and soy sauce to up the umami ante instead (although you can use chicken stock if you prefer).
Thinly sliced onions, green bell peppers and garlic all make this easy potato recipe reminiscent of home fries.
And we think you’re going to love how easy it is to make these vegetarian German potatoes in your rice cooker!
HOW TO MAKE GERMAN POTATOES IN A RICE COOKER
Simply load all of your ingredients (listed above) into the inner pot of your Tiger multifunctional rice cooker. Stir well, close the lid and select the Plain setting (yep – that’s the setting you’d use to make white rice) then press the Start button.
Your German potatoes will cook to perfection – and when the timer sounds off, it’s time to plate up and dig in! Don’t forget a little salt and pepper just before serving😉
