Skillet Fried Potatoes

Skillet Fried Potatoes

2 pounds potatoes (sliced or chopped into chunks)
1/4 cup of olive oil, approximately
salt and pepper
2 cloves of garlic, minced
A handful of chopped fresh herbs like parsley, chives, rosemary or
mint

In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil to hot but not smoking over
medium to medium-high heat. Add potatoes and sauté, stirring potatoes
from time to time so that they brown on both sides, about 20 minutes.
With only a few minutes left of cooking, add salt and pepper to
taste, then add garlic, and toss potatoes to distribute. Do not let
garlic brown. Remove from heat, taste for seasoning, and toss with
herb of choice. Serves 4 as a side dish.

(This side dish would be great with just about anything from burgers, chicken, steak or chops! All you need is a nice veggie dish or a tossed salad, some dinner rolls and you're all set. If you don't have fresh herbs then use the dried variety, but I do suggest using fresh herbs. Another thing I would do for this recipe is at the end add a little grated parmesan cheese if you wish....V.)
