Asian – Korean Potatoes Side Dish 9/10

Asian – Korean Potatoes Side Dish 9/10

March 17 2009


2-3 medium sized potatoes, onion, -used a whole
2 cloves garlic,
2TBsoy sauce,
1 tbs corn syrup,
1 tbs sugar,
half cup of water.


1. Peel the potatoes, wash, and cut them into 1 inch dice and make 2 cups.
2. Rinse the potato using colander in running water to remove starch.
3. Cut half onion into bite sized pieces.
4. Heat the pan and add 1-2 tbs olive oil and pour the potato into the pan.
5. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic and sauté it until the potato look a little translucent, then add the onion and keep stirring it.
6. Add half cup of water into the pan, 2 tbs – 2½ tbs soy sauce (depends on your taste), 1 tbs of sugar, 1 tbs of corn syrup and mix it and simmer it over medium heat for about 10 minutes until the liquid is evaporated.Tip: Keep checking and stirring not to burn it and to cook evenly, if it needs more water, add some.
7. When the potato is cooked, turn off the stove and add 1 tbs of sesame oil and sprinkle a pinch of sesame seeds.

This tasted very good. It tasted a bit bland before the liquid was boiled out, but you just need to take your time and let it all boil out. I couldn’t really fry the potatoes properly because I had such a small pan, so I ended up just simmering them in the broth for them to get it cooked. They cooked about 11 minutes when cut into medium sized cubes.
