Greek Potatoes

 I love grilled meat and grilling season. The meat is delicious, it is easy to prepare and there is usually not a lot of clean up. Grilling is an easy and tasty way to get a meal on the table. 

The only dilemma I face with grilling is thinking about what to serve with the delicious seared pork chop, steak or chicken.

These potatoes are a great thing to go along with anything you grill! The onions are sweet and caramelized, the potatoes are garlicky and have tons of flavor. Using the microwave to pre-cook the potatoes also makes them really quick to pull together for a weeknight meal. 


4 potatoes, cleaned
1 Tablespoon oil
1/4 medium onion
1 teaspoon Greek seasoning
1 teaspoon salt 
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced

 Place the cleaned potatoes into the microwave and cook them on high for about 3 to 4 minutes. This will help speed up the cooking without cooking the potatoes all the way through. Cut them into large slices.

On a medium sauce pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add in the potatoes, onions, salt and Greek seasoning. Let this cook for about 5 to 10 minutes. After the onions have softened, add in the garlic and lemon juice. 

Continue cooking until the potatoes are tender and can be pierced with a fork.

This is a great side for any meat you grill or bake!
