Seasoning and steaming question for russet potatoes
 
I would like to make steamed potatoes for dinner in an the biggest loser triple deck electric steamer. I only have russet potatoes. I also want to season them with Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning. My questions are 1. if I cut them into about 1 inch cubes, about how long should I steam 3 medium size potatoes? 2. Do I season them before or after I steam them?
I've never done this before, and not quite sure how to do this. Thanks for all your help.

imho, russet potatoes don't steam well. They are very starchy, and lend themselves much more to baking. I boil them for mashed potatoes, but not for any other purpose. I would use yukon golds, or other less starchy potato for steaming or serving as "boiled."

I guess that would explain why all the recipes I found where for using red potatoes! Thanks for your help and quick reply!
