Nothing goes better with meat than potatoes. Give these red potatoes with arugula a try tonight.


  • 2 pounds 2-inch red potatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ to ½ pound arugula
  • Cooking Directions

    Put the potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover by 2 inches. Season the water well with salt and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, 30 to 40 minutes. Drain them and let the moisture steam off. When they are cool enough to handle, peel them if you wish. Cut into ½-inch-thick slices.

    In a medium sauté pan, whisk together the cream, stock and mustard. Reduce by one-third over high heat, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and toss to coat. Stir in the butter and season with salt and pepper to taste. When the cream comes to a simmer, add the arugula. Continue to cook until the arugula is completely wilted, about 45 seconds.
