So for the perfect roasted red potatoes you need:
3 to 4 red potatoes washed and scrubbed- skin on
2 garlic gloves- minced
Paprika- a pinch or so- leaving this up to your discretion too much will make the food taste bitter
2 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp of olive oil
1/4 of a white onion- finely chopped
Fresh parsley- chopped
Pepper to taste
In a pan on low heat- melt butter and then add a tbsp of olive oil. Add paprika and minced garlic- stir. continue to cook on low for about 3 minutes.
Set the butter mixture aside and cut the onion up- then mix it in... cut the potatoes and place in a small cooking pan.. pour the remaining olive oil over the potatoes along with the butter mixture and then pepper to taste. I cooked this along with our chicken... the tempt was 450- but if cooking alone 400 should do and for 45 to hour. With the chicken I cooked it for about 45 mins and the turned to broil on low for 5 minutes to really brown the potatoes.
In the meantime while potatoes cook chop up the parsley and set aside
Remove the potatoes from oven with ready ( soft when poked with fork). Add parsley and mix it in well. Potatoes are ready to serve!

|All cooked and ready to eat :) ( Ooo look at the tasty chicken too!)|
Hope you enjoy the tasty potatoes!
p.s while this is not exactly what some people would call primal I beg you all to visit Primal Toads site and read his post about potatoes. Also I have found that I do way better with potatoes when I eat then with a dark green veggie and chicken or fish. With red meat I feel a bit comatose from eating the potatoes in conjunction with the beef- this may or may not help you- but it is worth a shot- most of the time I eat foods to keep my energy balanced so I can do more throughout the day.. It is a long hard road when trying to lose weight- I am constantly experimenting with my food.
