These rosemary garlic potatoes are slightly crispy on the outside and tender inside, savory and full of fresh herby flavor. This recipe is perfect with many dishes, from all kinds of meat to vegetarian.
Throughly wash and scrub the potatoes, then pat dry with a paper towel to absorb the excess moisture.
Place the potatoes on a clean cutting board and cut in half lengthwise, then transfer into a large bowl.
Add in the oil, garlic and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Chop your preferred herbs and add them to the bowl with the potatoes.
With your clean hands, toss well to coat.
Heat a large non-stick pan or heavy-bottom skillet, over medium heat.
Add the coated potatoes to the pan, and pour over 1/2 cup of water.
Cover the pan with the lid and cook over medium heat, until the potatoes are fork-tender, 15-20 minutes.
Check for doneness after about 12 minutes and add more water if needed.
Once the potatoes are tender, remove the lid.
Continue to cook uncovered until golden-brown, about 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway.
Garnish with more freshly chopped herbs and enjoy!
1. Cut all potatoes to the same size for even cooking. If some of them are bigger than others, try to cut them in thirds to get an even thickness.2. Use a large non-stick pan to avoid overcrowding the potatoes, which will prevent them from getting crispy.3. Make sure there is a thin layer of oil covering the entire surface of the pan before you add the potatoes to avoid burning. 4. If your potatoes aren't as crispy as you'd like, add more oil after you remove the lid. 5. You can use any variety of baby potatoes for this recipe. 6. To easily mince your garlic, use a garlic press, a microplane or small grater. 7. Use olive oil for a more flavorful result or avocado oil for a more neutral flavor. For the best flavor, do not let the oil come to its smoking point. For a richer flavor, use goose or duck fat instead of oil.8. If your skillet doesn't have a matching lid, put another larger pan or a tight aluminum foil on top to steam the potatoes.9. You can replace water with vegetable stock to infuse more flavor.
