Mexican Stamppot Recipe
- 2¼ lb Potato (Desiree or Maris piper)
- 9oz Kale
- 1 Onion
- 1 Garlic clove (optional)
- 1tbsp Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Mayo
- 1tbsp Plain flour
- Olive oil
- Dash of Worcestershire sauce (optional)
- 1 oz Butter
- 14 fl oz Beef stock
- 2 Sausages (smoked sausage is traditional)
- 3½ oz Bacon lardons
- Salt & pepper
- 1 Bay leaf
- Begin by making the mashed potato. Peel and slice the potato into evenly sized chunks. Dice half the onion. Add both to salted boiling water with a bay leaf and cook until potatoes are very tender (a knife should easily slice into them). Drain and return to pan.
- Add the Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Mayo, butter, salt & pepper before mashing.
- Remove the tender leaves from the kale with a sharp knife and slice finely. Add to a little salted boiling water and put a lid on it. Leave to cook for about 4 mins, or until nicely cooked with a little crunch. Combine with the potato and mix along with crispy fried bacon lardons (hold some back to sprinkle on top).
- The most authentic way to cook the sausages for this dish is to steam them. Once cooked, we fried them in a little oil to give them a bit of colour and extra flavour, but this is optional.
- Make the gravy by frying the finely sliced remaining onion and garlic clove in a little olive oil until soft (about 6-7 mins). Add the flour and stir. Leave to cook for a few minutes.
- Add the stock and a dash of Worcestershire sauce if you like. Gently simmer for about 15mins or until you have the consistency you want. Season to taste and add a knob of butter to give it a nice sheen.
- To serve, create a little well in the mashed potato/kale mixture and fill with gravy then top with the sausage, more gravy, finely chopped bacon bits and parsley.
