Do you love potatoes? This is a great recipe to try then. Stuff your potatoes with minced pork and a spicy tantalizing sauce that will leave your mouth watering!


  • 6 large kestrel potatoes skin on and washed

  • 2 tbs. olive oil

  • 1 red onion, finely sliced

  • 1 red capsicum, finely sliced

  • 300g mince pork

  • 2 tomatoes, diced

  • 1 handful of pitted olives

  • 1/2 bunch coriander, chopped

  • Sauce

  • 2 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 knob ginger

  • 1 red onion

  • 1 heaped tbs. smoked paprika

  • 1 tbs. chilli sauce

  • 2 tbs. lime juice

  • A good pinch oregano

  • 1 tbs. red wine vinegar

  • 40 ml olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • 40g Manchego or cheddar cheese.


  • 1.

    Put the potatoes in a large pot of cold water. Bring to boil and then drain and cool, enough to handle.

  • 2.

    To prepare the sauce, blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and fragrant.

  • 3.

    In a pan heat oil and sauté the onions and capsicum for 5 minutes. Add the mince and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until browned. Add the tomatoes, olives and the blended sauce and season again with salt and pepper. Once brought to the boil, immediately turn down and simmer for 15 minutes. Once cooked add the coriander.

  • 4.

    Pre heat the oven 190C.

  • 5.

    Cut each potato in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out 2/3 of the pulp from the potato and some from the lids so the potatoes will close once the filling is in them. Fill the cavity with the pork mixture and sprinkle with a little cheese. Replace the potato lid and bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown. Serve with a salad.
