This is another simple Korean side dish that uses baby potatoes. I wonder what your favorite vegetable is; mine is definitely potatoes. Boiling potatoes with soy sauce and other ingredients makes a great side dish. There are more potato side dishes that I want to post later. Enjoy!
Yield: 5 Servings
Short Korean Lesson
- GmaJa (감자) = Potato
- Al (알) = Egg or Egged Shaped
- 30 Little Baby Potatoes (1 lb, 5 oz)
- 4 Cups Water
- 8 Tbsp (About ½ Cup) Soy Sauce
- 4 Tbsp Corn Syrup
- 2 Tbsp Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Cooking Wine
- 1 tsp Sesame Seeds
Clean about 30 small baby potatoes.
Drain the water.
In a large pan, boil the potatoes for about 15 to 20 minutes on high until they are half cooked. The water should be reduced to about half.
Add 8 Tbsp of soy sauce, 4 Tbsp of corn syrup, 2 Tbsp of sugar, and 1 Tbsp of cooking wine.
Cook on medium for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked. The sauce will be thicker.
Turn off the heat, and sprinkle 1 tsp of sesame seeds on top.
They taste best right after cooking, so I recommend that you don’t make too much. Thanks!
