OXO Roast Potatoes Ingredients

You’ll just need three ingredients to make our perfect roast potatoes recipe

  • 1.5kg maris piper potatoes – peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 2 OXO cubes – we used Beef OXO cubes – you can use other flavours or the reduced salt ones if you prefer.
  • 5 tbsp sunflower oil

How To Make OXO Roast Potatoes

Just follow our simple instructions below to make the BEST Oxo Cube Roast Potatoes EVER!

Step One – parboil the potatoes

  • Parboil the potato chunks. Place them into a saucepan with cold water. Bring the pan to the boil and then simmer on a low heat for around 6-7 minutes until the potatoes are just tender.

Cooks Note – how long to boil potatoes before roasting will vary depending on the size you cut the potatoes – smaller ones taking less time, larger ones taking more time.

  • Drain the potatoes using a colander then return them to the saucepan.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6

Step Two – mix up the OXO

  • Crumble the OXO cubes into a cup or small jug.
  • Pour on around 150ml of boiling water and mix into a thick liquid.

Step Three – heat the oil in the oven

  • Pour the sunflower oil into the roasting tin and put into the oven to heat up – it only needs a couple of minutes to be hot enough so don’t put it in too soon.

Step Four – mix the parboiled potatoes with OXO

  • Pour the OXO mixture over the parboiled potatoes

  • Give the pan a shake so that all the potatoes are coated in the OXO mixture and a little fluffed up.

Step Five – cook the roast potatoes

  • Tip the OXO coated parboiled potatoes into the roasting tin and put into the oven for around 30 minutes or until they’re crispy and perfectly delicious (if you’ve done smaller/larger potatoes then adjust the cooking time to suit)

Cooks Note – the potatoes will be darker than usual due to the OXO so don’t worry if they look a little burnt
