  2. Add potatoes to the cast iron skillet and push around so that they’re all in one layer. Let these cook about 4 minutes, you can check by lifting one to see if it is golden brown. Don’t turn down the fire unless its starting to really smoke.
  3. When Potatos are browned on one side, flip over and add in the onions. Allow this about 4 minutes to cook. Check like before to see if browned.
  4. Once the second side is done, add in the Garlic and Season to taste. Cook for 2-3 minutes until Garlic starts to brown, stirring up everything while cooking.
  5. Its best to put potatoes on a plate with a piece or two of paper towel, Add fresh parsley if you have it and serve hot!
