Sauteed potatoes

Sautéed potatoes go great with almost any meat for dinner. Or serve them with eggs for breakfast, of course! Potatoes are on sale around here, .99 for a 10 pound bag of Russets. For dinner yesterday I made these to go with some barbecued flank steak.

Peel potatoes. Cut into 1/2″ slices, then cut those into 1/2″ pieces (so you end up with 1/2″ square “sticks”) then turn them sideways and cut into 1/2″ pieces. It’s a fast easy way to dice them.

Heat up a bit of oil and butter in a skillet (half of each). Put the potatoes in and stir up a bit to coat, then let them cook 5 minutes or so on medium heat until beginning to brown. Turn them, sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper and let brown. Keep turning them until they’re as brown as you like them. (We like them a bit crisp.) Goes great with just about any meat or for breakfast, of course. Add some diced onions if you’d like, although they’re quite good plain.

For a healthier alternative cook them up in a bit of olive oil or a mixture of olive oil and butter. Add some diced onion and green pepper if you’d like. Use leftover baked potatoes for these as well. […]
