Crispy Potatoes for Two....or more

serves two

2 tablespoons coconut or grapeseed oil
2 medium Yukon gold potatoes, peeled, and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
Sea Salt and pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons water
 1 1/2 unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a large cast iron pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Add the potato cubes and season with salt and pepper.  Saute stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. 
  1. Turn the heat up to high, add the water, stir, and cover the pan with a lid.  Steam the potatoes until the water evaporates, about 3-4 minutes. (open the lid long enough to give the potatoes a quick stir ever 1-2 minutes).  Lower the heat to medium and saute another 1-2 minutes until all traces of water are gone. 
  2. Toss in the butter and stir to coat the potatoes. 
  3. Spread the potatoes out on a baking sheet.  Bake in the oven until the potatoes are crisp and browned to your liking, about 15-25 minutes. 
Can be doubled or tripled to serve your family.
