DIRECTIONS

  • Warm the butter in a 10- to 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Stir in the potatoes, and when coated with a bit of butter, season them with salt and pepper and cover the skillet.
  • Cook for 20 minutes, during which you should hear only a faint cooking sound.
  • Uncover the potatoes and cook for 30 minutes longer, turning them at 10 minute intervals and patting them back down.
  • When you turn them the first time, stir in the onion, bell peppers, and chili powder if desired.
  • As the potatoes soften, pat them down more lightly, bringing as much of their surface in contact with the skillet as possible without mashing them.
  • Cook the potatoes for about 20 minutes longer, turning them at 5-minute intervals.
  • During the last 10 minutes, bring the heat up to medium and, if you wish, add more salt and pepper.
  • The home fries are ready when the potato cubes are richly browned and clearly crisp with tender, melting centers.
  • Plate them up immediately, scatter with chives if you wish, and serve.
