  3. Saute over medium-high heat for 12 to 14 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are browned on all sides.
  4. Meanwhile chop the garlic and parsley together until finely minced, set mixture aside. (This is a persillade.)

  6. Serve immediately.

This potatoes are a standard item on most Bistro menus. Cut into little cubes they can be sauteed in just a few minutes. They are best served immediately after cooking; if cooked ahead, they soften and lose the exterior crispness that contrasts so well with their soft interior.
