Skillet Potatoes With Green Beans And Herbs

This is the perfect side dish for steak, chicken, fish, or pork.

When veggies look and taste this good, everyone around our table practically begs for a second helping. Hearty potatoes make such a comforting side dish. They’re simple and satisfying, and there are so many ways to prepare them.

Last night, we sautéed a few new potatoes to serve alongside our pan-seared pork chops. We decided to toss green beans into the pan too, along with onions, tender mushrooms, and an assortment of herbs and spices, and the combination was absolutely amazing! The recipe is super easy, and it cooks up quickly. We love the flavor fresh herbs lend to this dish, but dried seasonings work just as well in a pinch. It’s the perfect accompaniment to almost any entree!
