Steamed Parsley Red Potatoes

Karla Everett


This is a very good potato dish , I stem baby red potatoes and smother them in real butter and parsley flakes.

I enjoy a dollop of sour cream on mine but they can be served with out if desired.

How to Make Steamed Parsley Red Potatoes


  1. Cut potatoes into wedges and put into a large pot with a steamer rack , add just enough water to come to the bottom of the rack.
  2. Cover and cook on high heat and allow to stem for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. ( where you can poke the potato and it goes in really easy)
  3. Transfer the cooked potatoes to a Pyrex dish and top with tabs of the butter , sprinkle with the parsley and the salt & pepper.
  4. Cover and let hot potatoes melt the tabs of butter.
  5. Stir up before serving.
  6. I like to serve mine with a dollop of sour cream on top.
