  • 4 1/2 lbs peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 1 lb of pork (you can use beef too)
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 packet of Goya sazon seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 black pepper
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp dry poultry gravy
  • 1 tsp Montreal chicken seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup water

 

Why use ketchup and mayo in Braised Potatoes?

Yes, ketchup and mayo! Trust me you will not regret using these ingredients. The ketchup is what gives these potatoes the nice orange color and the gravy powder slightly thickens the potatoes since they let out some juice. Don’t worry everything balances out and the potatoes come out amazing! You can trust me on these ingredients.

How to make Braised Potatoes:

  1. Season and sear your meat over high heat in a lightly greased skillet

3. Mix everything together and set the slow cooker on high for 4 hours. After 4 hours, set on mid or low for an additional 2 hours.

NOTE:

If using oven method bake at 400 degrees F for one hour and then 350 degrees F for an additional hour and a half. Check if potatoes are done;  it may take longer depending on the number of potatoes. It is ready when potatoes slightly darkened in color and juices got slightly thicker.

Can I omit the heavy cream? Just looked in the fridge and were all out! Can I just add more water or maybe milk???

Hi Julie, water would be fine however I do not recommend milk, the texture seems to be off when I did use milk.

You can find the Goya seasoning in most major grocery stores. I think walmart might even have them in the Mexican aisle where some Goya products can be found.
