Potato Pan Fries

Sweet and Russet Potato Pan Fries - Finding Joy in My Kitchen*

4-5 medium potatoes, cubed*

water, enough to cover the potatoes in 1 inch

salt and pepper

2-4 T butter

*I used sweet potatoes and russet

Cube the potatoes and place them in a large skillet.  

Cover the potatoes with water (about 1 inch of water), and sprinkle in 1 tsp (or more) of salt.  

Bring the potatoes to a boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes, until potatoes are slightly tender.  

Drain the water and rinse the potatoes.  

While potatoes are draining, add butter to the skillet and melt the butter.  

Return potatoes to the skillet and cook on one side for 2-3 minutes until nicely browned.  

Then, flip the potatoes and continue cooking another 2-3 minutes until browned.  

Continue rotating and cooking until potatoes are crunchy on all sides.  

Season with salt and pepper, as desired.  

Serve warm!
