READY IN: 35mins




  • In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, melt 1/2 tablespoon of the butter with 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil.
  • Add the onion and saute, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and just beginning to caramelize, 5-7 minutes.
  • Do not allow the onion to scorch.
  • Add the red and green peppers and saute until beginning to soften, 3-5 minutes longer.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and set aside.
  • Add 1/2 tablespoon each of the remaining butter and olive oil to the same pan.
  • Add half of the cubed potatoes and cook, turning to brown all sides, 5-7 minutes.
  • If the potatoes are too dry, add a little more butter or oil.
  • Transfer the browned potatoes to the bowl holding the pepper mixture.
  • Repeat with the remaining butter, olive oil and potatoes.
  • Return the mixture to the pan.
  • Raise the heat to high so that it quickly warms through.
  • Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add the parsley and stir to combine.
  • Return to the serving bowl and serve immediately.
