I've always loved potatoes; maybe because it's hard to ruin them while cooking :) This is how I make them when I just don't feel much like cooking. The seasonings are mostly to taste--these are just estimates. I don't add salt because some of the seasonings used already have salt in them.

Directions

  1. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet (I use a heavy non-stick skillet).
  2. Add potatoes to pan, stir to coat. (This is where you would add the onions if you were going to).
  3. Add seasonings after a couple of minutes. Stir.
  4. Continue cooking and occasionally stirring until done -- about 5-10 minutes (it will depend on the heat level and the size of your potato chunks).
  5. Sometimes I add sliced onions and sprinkle a little soy sauce on this; then garnish with a sprinkling of chopped cilantro (if I'm not feeling too lazy!
