                2. Peel, wash and slice potatoes.
                3. In a large non-stick skillet heat one cup of olive oil.
                4. When warm add chopped onions and 1/4 teaspoon of salt, cook and stir over medium heat for 4 - 5 minutes.
                5. Add sliced potatoes, cover the skillet with a lid and stir-fry over low-medium heat for 12 - 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender and beginning to crisp.
                6. Season with some salt and ground black pepper and set aside.
