  • 4 - 6 red potatoes cubed
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1 1/2 TB butter
  • 1 1/2 TB brown sugar
  • parsley or your favorite herb/spice
  • garlic salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring red potatoes, water, butter and brown sugar to a boil in a pan over medium-high heat.
  • Turn to low and simmer for approximately 6 minutes.
  • Turn back to high and cook until all the water is evaporated and potatoes are tender. It took me another 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Salt and Pepper, sprinkle with parsley and enjoy!
