Greek Style Potato Stew
Greek Potato Stew
The Orthodox Greeks enter partial fasts as part of their religious practices. This recipe is one that’s handed down and common among Greek families. It is perfect for a Daniel fast, and for Lent. The blend of the olives with the seasonings is so perfect, and will create a new comfort food that is sure to be a new family favorite.
2 ½ pounds potatoes, peeled and cubed
⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
¾ cup whole, pitted kalamata olives
1 ⅓ cups chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
In a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the potatoes and stir. Stir in the garlic. Add the olives and cook and stir for several minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, scallions, and oregano. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

This sounds fantastic! I have copied it into my “to make” file and hope to get it made and on the table soon! I will come back and tell you how it goes.
That sounds really delicious – almost like a hot potato salad. I’ll definitely give it a try.
I almost called it “salad” instead of ‘stew” – but the original recipe was stew so I didn’t want to change it.
mmmm…my family enjoyed this along with dolmathes with avgolemono sauce…it was a dinner to die for…and then I remembered after I’d rolled my grape leaves that you have a recipe for that on here too…next time we’ll do a Hallee Greek night :)
Greek night is my favorite night for dinner. :) mmm — I’m so glad you enjoyed it!
