Skillet Potatoes Recipe with Sausages
Cook potatoes in hot cast iron pan over medium to medium high heat. Do not over crowd the skillet. And do not turn potatoes for few minutes first. This will ensure you get evenly cooked and charred on one side potatoes.
Season potatoes with salt and pepper while cooking. Once potatoes are evenly cooked remove it from skillet.
Add sausages to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. That’s all you need to cook sausages.
Now add sliced onions, minced garlic, red and yellow bell peppers cut length-wise to the sausages. Cook for few minutes.
Season with salt, pepper and red chili flakes. Bring it all together with ¼ cup chicken stock.
Wait until everything is cooked through and stock is evaporated completely.
Add back the cooked potatoes to the skillet and wait for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat, season with coriander and serve.
How to Make Perfect Skillet Potatoes in Cast Iron Pan
- Always cut potatoes evenly to ensure everything is cooked well and evenly.
- Use cast iron pan to get perfect skillet potatoes. The texture and taste of cast iron skillet potatoes are something else, you can’t compare it to anything else!
- Heat up cast iron pan on medium high heat. Add olive oil and butter (along with olive oil if you like).
- Throw in the potatoes to hot cast iron pan. DO NOT OVER CROWD THE PAN.
- Wait for 5 to 8 minutes before you turn the potatoes. This step ensures you get nice char on potatoes. If you pile the potatoes in the skillet, potatoes won’t brown well.
- Also do not cover the potatoes. Covering the skillet with a lid will turn potatoes mushy!
