Now, my husband planted new potatoes. We didn't get as many as we hoped, but he did get enough for us and some friends. He wanted some of the potatoes boiled so he could put butter on each one and eat them. I had a better idea. Here's what I did:
- Boiled new potatoes until the skin cracked. Then poured off the water and put clean water in the pot--I have a hard time cleaning new potatoes, so this is how I do it. You will be surprised when you pour off the water at how dirty it is.
- Finished boiling new potatoes until fork tender. Remove from water and allow to cool for a few minutes for easier handling.
- Meanwhile, saute chopped onion in hot, dry skillet. (I used two onions and 5 large new potatoes because my husband loves onion. You measure to your taste.)
- While onions saute, slice potatoes into about 1/4 inch pieces.
- Add about 1/2 cup butter to the onion.
- When butter melts, add potatoes.
- Add about a cup of beef broth.
- Allow broth to reduce.
- Taste before adding salt and pepper due to the saltiness of beef broth.
