A classic creamy stew, but instead of just boiling the potatoes, I've cooked them sous vide for a slightly different twist.

Description

A classic and creamy potato stew where the potatoes have been cooked sous vide in a preparatory step. Potatoes cooked sous vide will have a different texture than boiled and are also easier to prepare and then leave to rest in the fridge until it is time to cook the stew.

I have made another variation of dill stewed potatoes in this recipe for cured salmon which does not use sous vide. Of course, you don't need to use sous vide for this recipe either, and instead you can cook the potato pieces as usual for 18-20 minutes.

Serve with cured or smoked fish. I usually use this or the Scanian Potato recipe as a side dish for grilled "isterband" or another similar tasty sausage.
