Recipe by Sageca

This is one from a German grandmother. She will often cook hamburger with onion and make a gravy to blend with it to pour over the pink potatoes.

These pink potatoes were awesome. We really enjoyed the flavor and texture of this tasty dish. I used Yukon gold potatoes and organic carrots and sweet onions, they were so good in this dish. This was the perfect comfort food dish. I did take your suggestion and served the potatoes with Hamburger Gravy. So happy that I did. I had a very happy hubby and no leftovers, it was that good. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. Made as written and wouldn't change a thing. Made for Think Pink 2014.
