Recipe Notes

Before cooking potatoes, I measure potatoes by placing them in the skillet and use that amount. You may use a large baking pan and use more potatoes. Also, I always heat the skillet on the stove top to get it started. You can use a mixture of yellow/gold, red and purple potatoes.

They all taste amazing. I just had these golden so that’s what I used. Cook pork first and an hour before pork is done, start cooking potatoes if you are going to serve it that day, if not, just store the pork in the fridge after it is fully cooled.

Of course, you would cook broccoli at the last minute. They are not very good when standing too long, so cook them at the very last minute before you would serve a meal. Also, you can use any other vegetable as a side.
