  • 1 pound broccoli, florets cut into small pieces, stalks peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 large russet potatoes, (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Bring 1 1/2 inches of water to a boil in a small saucepan fitted with the steamer insert. Add broccoli; cover, and cook until broccoli is just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain in a colander, and rinse with cold running water until broccoli has cooled completely.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes; cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, golden, and just tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Add butter and broccoli to the skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes and broccoli are browned, about 4 minutes.

    Excellent; added carrot cubes wonderful with a semi-sweet roasted chicken. My dad & me enjoyed.
