Peel raw potatoes. Wash in cold water. Slice crosswise into thin slices. Drain.
Heat 2 heaping or more Tablespoons shortening in frying pan. Add potatoes. When hot, season with salt and pepper. Cover pan closely. Let potatoes steam until partially done, then remove lid and permit to brown. Stir so they will brown evenly.
Chopped onion may be added the last five minutes, if desired.
