These potatoes smelled delicious while they were braising, all of the flavours filled our home. Although they had some time to sit after cooking and I had to reheat them a bit, they still didn't absorb much of the flavour. I even reduced the cooking liquid and spooned it over them when they were done. I had to use dried herbs as I was unable to get fresh last night at the market, this could be a bit of my problem. I also used baby Yukon Gold potatoes, so I didn't cut them in half... this may have been an issue as well.
I've made roasted potatoes using a similar recipe and believe that I would have loved these ones prepared that way. As I made them, using the dried herbs, I don't think I would bother making this potato recipe again because I don't think it added much, but I can't wait to roast them.
They were definitely broth-braised potatoes... nothing more, nothing less.
