Source: Martha Stewart Living, January 2011


  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 russet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 onions, sliced into rings
  • 1/2 teaspoon pimenton
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook potatoes, covered, for 5 minutes. Season with salt. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil and the onions; stir. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, covered, for 5 minutes more. Uncover, and cook, tossing often, until potatoes and onions begin to brown, about 8 minutes.

  2. Sprinkle with pimenton, and cook until potatoes and onions are golden brown and tender, about 8 minutes more. Toss with parsley, and season with salt.
