Scottish "fried" Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

These potatoes aren't "fried" at all, but simmered in broth in a frying pan on the stovetop. The potatoes are very tasty and tender and are especially good in the winter. My family loves this with pork or beef roasts and carrots.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter/margarine in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet on medium-high heat.
  2. Arrange sliced potatoes and onions in the skillet over the butter and sprinkle with salt, paprika, peppers, and parsley.
  3. Allow potato mixture to cook for a few minutes, turning to brown evenly. Potatoes should be just barely browned.
  4. Add the broth and the water to the skillet and cover tightly with a lid.
  5. Turn heat down to medium and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Stir several times during cooking to prevent potatoes from sticking.
