Peppery Potatoes O'Brien

Get out a big frying pan and make these peppery potatoes with onion and green bell pepper.....great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Use as much or little black pepper as you like..

5 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1  1/2 cups diced onion
1 cup diced green bell pepper
2 Tbl olive oil
2 Tbl butter plus another Tbl or two for finishing
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the potatoes in water for about 5 minutes until almost fork tender and then drain.
In a large frying pan saute the onions and bell pepper in 2 Tbl olive oil and 2 Tbl butter until soft.
Add the potatoes, salt and pepper...give everything a stir and turn up the heat a bit.  Let the potatoes cook until they begin to brown on the bottom.  Stir them up again, dot with a little more butter and then cover with a lid.  Cook until the bottom browns up a little again.  Re season with salt and pepper and serve piping hot!
