Roasted Potatoes with Lemon, Oregano and Garlic

Author Aglaia Kremezi says these are some of the most delicious roasted potatoes you'll ever taste, especially if you (like many Greeks at Easter) roast them in the lamb juices.


  • 3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup beef or chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons freshly chopped oregano plus additional for garnish

  2. Place potatoes in a single layer on 13 x 9-inch baking dish and pour oil over them.
  3. Add garlic, oregano and salt and pepper to taste, tossing well to coat. Bake potatoes for 15 minutes.
  4. Add stock, toss and bake 10 minutes more.
  5. Add lemon juice, toss and bake 10 to 15 minutes more, until cooked through.
  6. Sprinkle with fresh oregano and serve at once.
