Number of ingredients: 8
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, seeded and chopped into small pieces
  • 4 medium-large red potatoes, skin on and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

How to cook:
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a heavy 12” skillet over medium-high heat. Do not let it smoke. Add the onion & pepper and cook until browned about 8-10 minutes. Do not let this burn. Stir frequently. When done, remove from heat and transfer to a bowl.
  2. While the onions and peppers are cooking add the potatoes into a large saucepan. Add just enough cool water just until the tops of the potatoes are covered and they float slightly. Place the pan over high heat. As soon as the water begins to boil, remove from the heat and drain the potatoes in a colander. ~5 minutes.
  3. In the pan, the onions and peppers were sautéed in, place it back on the burner to medium-high and add the butter and remaining oil. When the butter foams, add the potatoes in a single layer, making sure each potato is touching the surface of the skillet. Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes WITHOUT stirring. You want the sides to brown. Once browned on one side, carefully flip and brown the other sides. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Once all the sides are crispy brown, add the onions and peppers back in and gently stir. Next add in the salt, black, pepper, and paprika. Stir gently and remove from heat.
  5. Enjoy!

How to cook:
  1. Wash and scrub the potatoes, then dry well. Cut them into ¾-inch cubes.
  2. In a large pot or dutch oven, bring 5 cups of water to a boil over high heat. Add the baking soda and stir to dissolve. Add the potatoes and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir and cook until the surface softens but not cooked all the way through, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain into a colander, gently shake off the excess moisture, then add back to the pot. Cook over low heat until the moisture evaporates, about 2 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat, add 1 tablespoon butter and ¾ teaspoon salt. Stir until a starchy paste coats the surface, about 30 seconds. Set aside.
  4. In a large 12-inch skillet or cast iron pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onions and ¼ teaspoon salt. Saute until lightly browned and translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add bell peppers, saute for 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once the butter melts, add the potatoes. Stir and spread them in a single layer. Let it sit without stirring until the bottoms are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  6. Turn the potatoes with a spatula. Repeat the process of spreading in a single layer, allowing to sit and fry for 4 to 5 minutes, until a majority of the sides are lightly browned and crisp, about 11 to 15 minutes. Individual pieces may need to be flipped over to ensure browning.
  7. Turn off the heat, evenly sprinkle the potatoes with paprika, onion powder, and black pepper. Stir to combine. Add the sauteed onions and bell peppers, cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Garnish with parsley and serve while hot.
