This is one of my tastebud crash dummies’ highly recommended side dishes – stewed sweet peppers. It’s a really simple dish. What you need most experience in, is waiting. Stewed sweet peppers take time to create, but the pay off is great. This side dish looks and tastes amazing.
The sweet peppers are the major ingredient and taste force in this dish, but they need the rest of the ingredients to add dimension. Shallots and garlic provide further savory sweetness, poblano and thyme cuts the sweetness with an earthy taste and the potatoes take on all of the flavors and brings them together to make a superb side dish.
You will be ever so happy once this dish is complete, and hard pressed not to just eat it out of the pan. The sweetness of the peppers once stewed is extraordinary. If you like, you can even serve as an appetizer or cocktail party bite. Just pile your stewed sweet peppers on top of pieces of toasted bread, drizzle with olive, and you have bruschetta.
I served stewed sweet peppers as a side dish, last week, with grilled ribeye steaks. My tastebud crash dummies were the recipients, hence the nod of approval. We ate them on the roof with the night time air blowing through our hair and the mosquitoes biting our ankles. But we were happy, very happy indeed.
So give this recipe a try and make your friends and family happy too.
