PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 15 minutes

3 large or 4 small Yukon Gold potatoes, washed and quartered
1/2 red onion, cut into slivers
1 cup Shiitake mushrooms, sliced lengthwise in half
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste

Parboil the potatoes: Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and add about a tablespoon of salt. Add the quartered potatoes and boil for 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Heat a large skillet to medium. Add butter and olive oil and melt together. Add potatoes, mushrooms and onions. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for about 7-8 minutes, until potatoes are browned and fork-tender. Add garlic and parsley and sauté for another two minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
