DIRECTIONS

  • Roughly chop onion into wide pieces - I like inch wide slices, cut into about sixths.
  • Chop pepper into similar size pieces, discarding stem and seeds.
  • Heat about three tablespoons oil in large frying pan (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions, cook until golden and slightly transparent, about three minutes.
  • Add peppers, cook until tender, about an additional two or three minutes.
  • Peel and cube potatoes; I like them about 3/4" square. Add them and additional tablespoon or two of oil to frying pan.
  • Add salt and pepper (preferably freshly ground) to taste.
  • Cook, stirring frequently and then patting back down, until tender and cooked through and slightly golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  • Stir one more time, and pat down to maximize surface area in contact with frying pan. Increase heat to high, and cook WITHOUT stirring to get a great crust, about an additional 5-8 minutes.
