2 large potatoes, scrubbed clean with the skin on
1/2 large onion
1-2 tsp Kosher salt or sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise, then slice to no more than 1/4 inch thickness.
Slice onion in thin slices.
In a frying pan heat ½ inch of olive oil to medium heat.
Place potatoes in frying pan. Top with onions (do not put onions in before potatoes, because they will burn before the potatoes cook through). Add salt and pepper.
Put a lid on it and let it sit for several minutes.
When the bottom layer of potatoes start to brown, turn them.
Leave the lid off for a few minutes, turn the potatoes again, and put the lid back on for about 5 more minutes.
Potatoes are done when a fork pierces them easily. If needed, drain on paper towels.
Thumbs up! I love potatoes because they are so versatile. This is a great recipe for when you're craving french fries, but it's a little different taste. I highly recommend this recipe because it's simple, delicious, and has very few ingredients.
