Behind the Recipe

Sack of Potatoes on A Sunday Afternoon

I must hand it to Uncle Allen. The man knew how to grill a steak. Thick cut, thinly sliced, ribeye, strip, bottom flank or top sirloin. It didn’t matter. He had a talent for the main course. Every other Sunday, he’d invite our family over to his bachelor pad for a juicy steak. The moment we walked through his door, he’d holler out, “I’ll bring the meat.” And I’d respond with “…if you bring the potatoes.” It was our little tradition, and I’ll never forget him for it.

This Grilled Potato Salad recipe was one of our Sunday favourites. You can use a cast-iron skillet directly on your grill grate. Because what’s meat without the potatoes? As seen in Beyond the Flame with Maddie Brenneman.

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
