Perfect Roast Potatoes
Serves: 6
  • 3 pounds starchy potatoes, such as Russets or Yukon Gold, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • Table salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter (or duck fat) melted
  • Kosher salt
  1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Place potatoes in a large pot with water just to cover (about 1½ quarts) and 2 teaspoons of table salt. Turn burner on high and cook, covered, until a knife, piercing one of the potatoes, goes in about ¼ inch, about 12 minutes from when you turn on the burner. Drain off water, return lid to pot, and shake potatoes to create a rough surface.
  2. Turn potatoes onto a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with butter to evenly coat, and lightly sprinkle with Kosher salt. Roast, turning once at about 30 minutes, until golden brown, about 40 minutes total. Serve!
