Thoroughly wash and scrub the potatoes and pat dry with a towel.
On the stove over medium-low heat melt the butter in a large dutch oven. Don't heat too high or butter will burn.
Add in potatoes, sprinkle with salt and toss to combine.
Cover with lid and cook for 20-25 minutes.
Every 5 min or so, give the pot a shake with the lid on. This keeps the potatoes from sticking to the pot
Potatoes are done when they can be easily pierced with a fork.
Add in the fresh herbs and let cook for a few more minutes.
