I suggest using whole small new potatoes rather than cutting up larger ones. Even fingerlings are good. Seems to avoid the uncooked problem. Another tip, which is a bit time consuming, is to soak potatoes (peeled) over night. That way when you cook then they will absorb all the flavor that boiled or microwaved will not do so well.
