Used this recipe for potatoes to be used in potato salad. Perfect!!! Salted the water and cut potatoes in about 1 inch cubes. Saved time, dishes, and potatoes were not watery. What a great idea.
I do this all the time for my breakfast potatoes. After I pre-cook them I put them in a hot pan with a little oil to brown them. What I really like is that I don’t have to use much oil. Sometimes I add eggs on top, let them cook a little bit. Then I add a little water around the edge to steam eggs. It’s nice to add shredded cheese and salsa too!
If you put potatoes in a beef casserole, how big should they be? And is this OK to do? Any type of potatoes? Can I put them in at the beginning.? The cooking says 20 mins for beef casserole. Do I need longer with potatoes in? I am a total beginner. Thanks so much. X
Hi, Marion! For a beef casserole, I would cut your potatoes into 1 1/2 inch chunks and cook them as directed in the recipe here. I’d stir the potatoes into your casserole and bake as directed. If your casserole only cooks for 20 minutes, I don’t think your potatoes will overcook too much in that time. Good luck!
This produced the best mashed potatoes I have ever eaten. Thanks!
The steamer basket shown in the link is not the same as the basket in the pictures. The basket in the pictures looks like a mesh strainer.
The one that Coco uses in the photos is this one, but you have to snap the handles off, FYI! She also recommends the one we linked to in the post.
Made this tonight with the Instant Pot and the oven — absolutely perfect! Never going back to boiling or microwaving . The roasted potatoes were crispy with just beautifully textured insides,
What is the steamer basket you show in this use? I clicked on the red “link” but it didn’t take me anywhere. Thanks!
Hmm… I’m not sure why the link isn’t working for you. It looks like it’s working ok on our end! Anyone else having trouble?
In any case, the steamer basket is a standard collapsable basket, like those used for steaming broccoli on the stovetop. Here’s the link again.
This is a great idea for those of us that camp. Having a supply for potato salad or breakfast home fries sounds great.
At home, if I want potatoes in a hurry, I just cut them smaller and reduce the cook time accordingly, but in the motor home this will eliminate a lot of heat and humidity that I don’t need.
