4 Method / Steps

Step 1

Trim ends of potatoes to make each potato the same length. Cut in half crossways.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan-forced. Heat oil in a large oven-proof frying pan. Cook potato for 8 to 10 minutes each side, or until well-browned.

Step 3

Add butter, rosemary, thyme and garlic to pan. Cook for 1 minute or until butter is foamy. Add stock. Season well with salt and pepper. Transfer pan to oven.

Step 4

Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until potato is tender. Sprinkle with extra fresh rosemary and thyme. Serve.
