Korean Potatoes

My picture doesn’t look very appealing, but this recipe is really fantastic. I was very unsure about this recipe but the end results were impressive. If you don’t like sesame oil you might not like this recipe, but if you are a lover like me you will really enjoy this hearty recipe. 

  • 2 -3 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 onion, cut in bite sized pieces
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  1.  Rinse potatoes to remove starch.
  2. Heat pan and add olive oil. Add potatoes and garlic and cook until the potatoes look a little translucent, and then add the onion. Keep stirring.
  3. Add water, soy sauce, sugar, corn syrup and mix and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes until liquid is evaporated. If it needs more water, add some.
  4. When potato is cooked take off stove and add 1 T of sesame oil and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

    What an interesting combination of flavors. I wish I would have seen this before dinner. Maybe I'll try it tomorrow.
