DIRECTIONS

  • Fry potato chunks in hot oil in a 9- or 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat 12 minutes, turning often.
  • Add onion, and cook 5 more minutes. Remove mixture to a serving bowl, using a slotted spoon.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • This is rustic cooking at its best. Leave the skins on the potatoes, if you'd prefer. They'll fry crispy brown and save you a step, too.
  • A cast iron skillet is an inexpensive investment. Foods cooked in it absorb iron, which will increase the amount of iron you consume.
