The easiest potatoes you will ever make. Seriously.

I am reposting this because I think it's worth talking about again! This recipe is Lee's favorite - and becoming mine too. These potatoes turn out perfectly every time! Ina Garten is a genius.  

Ina's Dill Fingerling Potatoes

2 TBL unsalted butter
1 1/4 lbs fingerling potatoes, rinsed but not peeled
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 TBL chopped fresh dill

Melt the butter in a Dutch oven or large heavy-bottomed pot. Add the whole potatoes, salt and pepper, and toss well. Cover the pot tightly and cook over low heat for 20 to 30 minutes, until the potatoes are just tender when tested with a small knife. From time to time, shake the pot without removing the lid to prevent the bottom potatoes from burning. Turn off the heat and allow the potatoes to steam for another 5 minutes. Don't overcook. Toss with the dill, and serve hot.
