The traditional way of cooking potatoes with these classic Portuguese flavors is to slow-roast them in the oven or long-braise them on the stovetop alongside meat. But in “Authentic Portuguese Cooking,” author Ana Patuleia Ortins includes a quicker, meat-free version that yields a wonderfully delicious side. We adapted her recipe, opting to use a mixture of wine and chicken broth for simmering (wine alone tended to toughen the exteriors of the potatoes) and substituting jarred crushed peppers—the type often smeared onto Italian sandwiches—for the spicy Portuguese red pepper paste called massa de malagueta. If you cannot find crushed peppers, simply use ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes instead.
