Rosemary Potatoes


  • 4 russet potatoes
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel the potatoes and slice off the ends. Cut into 1-inch slices. Season both sides of the potatoes generously with kosher salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a cast-iron skillet (or other heavy-duty, ovenproof skillet) over medium-high heat. Add the oil and 4 tablespoons of the butter. Sear the potatoes on one side until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Flip the potatoes and add the broth, rosemary and garlic.
  4. Cut the remaining 6 tablespoons butter into cubes and scatter on top of the potatoes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Garnish with kosher salt and spoon the pan sauce all over the potatoes.
