The Versatile Yukon Gold Potato
I made these cubed pan roasted potatoes with the ever reliable Yukon Gold potato.
But I must tell you, I simply can’t wait for the first Colorado new potatoes to try this recipe with. Depending on the size of those new potatoes, I see no reason to even peel or slice them.
The Yukon gold potato is thin skinned, smooth and relatively eye free. Its yellow-tinged flesh is richly flavored, fairly firm and moist, with medium starch content.
So if you use them for this recipe, there is no reason to peel them. The skins are tender and tasty, just wash them well, and cube them into large bite sized chunks.
A perfect compromise between dry, fluffy russet potatoes and moist, waxy varieties, Yukon Golds are incredibly versatile. They’re superb for mashing and in soups and chowders, and they’re great for roasting and sauteeing.
No matter what potato dish I’m cooking, it seems I find myself reaching the the Yukon gold.
The tougher skinned Russet potato also doesn’t need to be peeled, but their skins can be a bit over-whelming, so that decision is up to you. When working with russet potatoes, I always scrub them well as opposed to just rinsing them as I do with Yukons.
The Procedure – How to
How To Make Pan Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary:
- Start by simply rinsing and cleaning the Yukon Gold Potatoes. Just run them under water and use your hands to rub and clean them. Cut off any unsightly dark spots.
- Dry them off and cut them into bite sized cubes.
- Place them in a large bowl and add fresh rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, sweet smoked paprika, salt and pepper to taste and olive oil.
- Using a large spoon, stir and toss the potatoes well to coat and flavor each cubed potato.
- Heat the cast iron skillet over medium high heat.
- Add the potatoes and with a metal spatula, stir, cooking them stovetop for two minutes.
- Transfer the hot pan to the hot oven. Cook for about 30 minutes, stirring every ten minutes, or so. In the last ten minutes of cooking add the minced garlic.
Once the potatoes are tender when pricked with a toothpick and golden in color, they’re ready to serve.
These cast iron potatoes are a perfect potato side dish for any entree you can dream up for your weekly meal prep plans.
