Crisp Salt & Vinegar Potatoes

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time30 mins
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4


  • 2 lbs little potatoes, halved
  • 1 cup + 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • flaked sea salt
  • chopped chives, for garnish (optional)


  • To a large pot, add the potatoes, 1 cup of vinegar, and the tablespoon of salt. Add water to the pot, until it covers the potatoes by 2 inches. Bring the pot to a rolling boil, reduce heat to medium low, and then simmer the potatoes for 20 minutes, or until fork tender.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a strainer to drain, and let them rest there for a minute or two while the steam dries them slightly.
  • Heat the butter in a large cast iron skillet, over medium high heat, until melted and hot. Stir in the potatoes, season with salt & pepper, and fry until the potatoes are golden brown & crispy. 
  • Transfer the fried potatoes to a serving dish, and drizzle with the remaining vinegar. Sprinkle with the flaked salt, and then garnish with the chives- if using.
