Steamed and Buttered Red Potatoes

If there's one thing my mom always goes to in terms of potato dishes, it's this. She's made it for years and always just whipped it up every time. She never followed a recipe but knew exactly what she was doing so it was the same delicious flavor every time. Moms are funny like that...

I've made it a couple times myself but I'm one of those people that are always trying to improve on a recipe even if it doesn't need it. I figured I would write it down the time I finally got it to taste like the potatoes my mom used to make. It's a simple dish, but it has such a nice, buttery flavor that goes with absolutely anything. Chicken? Yep. Steak? Of course. Fish? You betcha. Heck, they're even good by themselves without anything else!

Steamed and Buttered Red Potatoes


 5-6 medium sized red potatoes, cut into 1 1/2" cubes
 1/2 c water
 3 TB butter
 1/4 tsp salt
 1/4 tsp pepper
 1 TB parsley


Place everything in a medium-sized saucepan. Turn heat to low and cook until butter is melted. Stir lightly, cover, and cook over low heat for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Toss potatoes around a little - with lid still on - halfway through cooking time.
