Sitting in my kitchen, pondering what to prepare for my friends who were coming over to my place later in the day for dinner.

I wanted something quick and easy, plus there was no way, I was going for rice & sauce/jollof rice, in fact, anything that has to do with rice *straight face*

I had some Irish potatoes from the previous week, I wasn’t going to let it spoil/waste.

I thought to myself, should I roast or fry?

I wasn’t down for peeling potatoes and cutting into fries slice. I had to do something different with them.

This recipe is a quick and easy way to enjoy potatoes and beef….the taste is in the difference *lol*
