  • 2 1/2 pounds red or other waxy potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt


  • Peel the potatoes (opional), and cut them into one-inch chunks.
  • Place a steamer basket in the pressure cooker or Instant Pot, then add one cup of water to the bottom of the pot. Add the potato chunks.
  • Secure the lid on the Instant Pot, and set the pressure release valve to "sealing." Set the Instant Pot to the manual high pressure setting for five minutes.
  • After the potatoes have cooked at high pressure for five minutes, let the pressure release naturally for five minutes. Then move the pressure release valve to "venting" to release remaining pressure, and remove the lid.
  • Meanwhile, preheat a cast iron skillet or other skillet over medium high heat for five minutes.
  • Add the oil to the hot skillet, then add the potato chunks. Sprinkle with seasoned salt.
  • Brown the potatoes for about ten minutes until they are done to your liking. Stir and toss gently with a spatula every 1-2 minutes.
