Sauteed Garlic Potatoes

These are my husbands FAVORITE potatoes of all time.  He loves when I make them and, really, they are very easy to make.  Simple but delicious.  I hope they are a family favorite of yours too.  Enjoy.

Perfectly sauteed potatoes:  delish!

5 red potatoes, washed well and cut into pieces (I cut them into 1-2" chunks)
2tbs butter
2tbs extra virgin olive oil
2tsp minced garlic
sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

1. In a large saute pan, heat about an inch of water until boiling.  Add in a steamer basket and throw in the potatoes.  Cover and turn down the heat.  Let steam for 10-15 minutes, or until potatoes are just barely tender when pierced with a fork.
2. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil until hot.  Add in garlic then potatoes.  Cook potatoes until brown on one side, then flip and cook on the other side (may need to stir them around at this point).  You want your potatoes deep brown but not burnt.  This takes about 5-10 minutes.  Serve hot!
