Ingredients
  • 4 large Idaho potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Hot pepper sauce, to taste

  • Methods/steps
    Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and coarsely chop the potatoes. In a large heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, melt 1 tbsp. of butter in the vegetable oil. Add the onion and red and green peppers and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until wilted, about 4 minutes. Mix in the potatoes and press into an even layer in the skillet. Cook over moderate heat until browned and crusty on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn the potatoes, adding the remaining 1 tbsp. butter to the skillet as you turn, and cook until well browned, about 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve with hot sauce.
