Peel the potato and onion. Slice thinly. It works great if you use a mandolin.

Step 2

Heat the oil a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Step 3

When hot add in the potato slices and onion slices.

Step 4

Sprinkle with a good bit of salt and a pepper,

Step 5

Using a wooden spoon gently turn the mixture in oil and adjust the heat so the oil is just bubbly but not too hot.

Add in two tablespoons of the reserved oil and heat to a medium flame.

Step 13

As soon as the edges start to firm, reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 5 minutes.
