These are good and easy directions. I was looking for more detail between levels of heat and covering. So I will add that covering the potatoes in a skillet is a good idea, it also creates he condensation so that you don't have to put a splash of water on top of the oil just add the potatoes seaosned with oil in the skillet and listen for the sizzle. Cook to perfection. 25 min medium to low to high heat at the right times is about right. Thanks for sharing!
