How To Make Smothered Potatoes

These perfectly tender smothered potatoes offer a humble and tasty side dish, made with simple ingredients, for a filling bite.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 15 mins
Total: 20 mins


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 potatoes, medium, peeled and sliced into even round disks
  • 1 onion, chopped into half moons
  • ¼ cup water, or stock
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper


  1. Heat olive oil in the pot/pan on medium heat, then add the potatoes along with the onions. Cover with the lid and let them cook for a few minutes. Keep checking and flipping the potatoes so that they don't get burnt.

  2. Add the water or stock, cover with the lid and cook for a few minutes.
  3. When the potatoes are almost done, add the garlic, salt, and pepper and cook without a lid until the potatoes are cooked through and the thinnest slices are a bit mushy. Remove from heat.

  4. Serve with fresh herbs, sour cream, or pesto. Enjoy!
