2tspbutterunsalted or olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2tablespoonschopped parsley for garnish
Melt butter in the bottom of a heavy skillet or saucepan. Add potatoes and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Cover with a tightly fitting lid. Turn the burner to low.
After 10 minutes, shake the pan to turn the potatoes. Set the timer for 5 more minutes to test for doneness. Potatoes are done when they feel soft when pierced with a fork. Don't let them overcook, however. (See notes)
When the potatoes are finished cooking, remove them from the burner and add minced garlic. Shake to distribute. Let the potatoes sit covered for an additional 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley, thyme, rosemary or grated parmesan.
The potatoes can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to cook depending on the size and the amount of the potatoes you're cooking. Test after 15 minutes to judge where they're at. If there's only a small give when pierced they need an additional 10 minutes. If they are becoming soft, 5 minutes may be all you need.
Garlic can become bitter if it burns. For that reason, I just allow the garlic to steam into the potatoes at the end.
You can use any herb or even grated parmesan too. Again, I add the herbs at the end. They stay bright and add flavor.
