How to Make Stewed Potatoes?

Some dishes you slave over, and others? They’re so easy it feels like cheating. This is the latter. Four ingredients, one pot, and bam! You’re in flavor town. Here’s your roadmap to the culinary big leagues, my friend.

Ingredients we Need: 

2 Lbs of Potatoes, Finely Peeled and Cut into 1-Inch Cubes

½ Cup of Butter and Margarine

1 Tsp of Kosher Salt

½ Tsp of Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Methods of Preparing Step by Step:

Step 1: In a large saucepan, add 2 lbs of potatoes and fill the saucepan with enough water in order to cover the potatoes. 

Step 2: Sprinkle 1 tsp of Kosher salt, and ½ tsp of freshly ground black pepper. 

Step 3: Add butter and bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat to above simmer or gentle boil. 

Step 4: Cover and let cook for 20 minutes to 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender enough to be pierced easily with a fork. 

Step 5: Then increase the heat to the level of boiling and continue stirring until the liquid has reduced and the potatoes are finely broken to the consistency you desire. This won’t take more than 10 minutes. 

After 10 minute, remove the stewed red potatoes from heat and serve hot.


I Always Use Yukon Gold Potatoes and in My Opinion They Show the Best Result for This Stewed Potatoes.

Make Sure You Don’t Cook It in Haste, that Won’T Give You the Best Taste. 🙂
