Simple Braised Maine Potatoes

2 pounds Maine potatoes (roughly 4 medium to large)

3 T butter

1 diced onion

1 t minced garlic

1 sprig of thyme or rosemary

Salt and pepper

About 2 cups chicken, turkey or vegetable stock


  1. Scrub the Maine potatoes, then cut into one-inch chunks
  2. Heat 3 T butter in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes, onion, garlic, a sprig of thyme or rosemary, and salt and pepper. Cook, stirring until potatoes begin to turn golden, about 10 minutes.

  5. Enjoy!
