Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, cook potatoes for 4-5 minutes on one side, or until a golden-brown crust forms. Use tongs to flip and cook on the other side. Repeat until all potatoes have been browned on both sides, adding more oil if necessary.
Spread browned potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until potatoes are soft on the inside and very crisp on the outside. Toss with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
