  1. Place potatoes in a steamer basket in a pan with water. Water shouldn't be higher than the base of the steamer. Cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and steam the potatoes until they are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add leeks; cook and stir until tender and translucent, about 7 minutes. Add parsley and seasoned salt, stirring to combine. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Gently stir in warm potatoes; season with freshly ground black pepper.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Potatoes may be prepared earlier in the day. When adding cold potatoes to the pan, allow 2 to 3 minutes to warm, before removing from heat. If desired, prepare potatoes in a pressure cooker, following manufacturer guidelines.

Delicious! My husband couldn't stop raving about these, and told me I better make them again! I used white potatoes instead of red, but other than that, followed the recipe. I had never steamed ...

Awesome recipe. So simple and so delicious. Cut the recipe in half because there was only two of us, wish I hadn't!

09.17.16 ~ What a fantastic potato dish! I had some newly dug fresh baby reds that I used in this recipe. I don't have a steamer so I just microwaved my potatoes until they were done. The flav...

For such an easy recipe, the combination of these ingredients is amazing. I've made it many times.

I'll make this again. I chose it because I wanted a low-sodium side for a salty main... but this cries out for salt. It just does need some kosher salt. I am happy with this recipe otherwise and...

So yummy!! Made almost as written but left out the parsley, it doesn’t add any flavor and is a pointless herb to me. Added lots of fresh garlic. Will use more leeks next time. I highly recommend...

Really simple but yummy. The only thing I changed was how I cooked the potatoes to my most comfortable method on the stove.
