Gamja JoRim ( Korean Braised Potatos)

  • 3 medium white potatoes (about 3 cups cut)
  • 1/2 medium onion,cut same size as potatoes
  • 1 dried red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp minced green onion
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine (or other cooking wine)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp corn syrup (or honey)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds
  • pinch of black pepper

  1. Peel and cut potatoes into about 1½-inch chunks. Put the potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes to remove starch. 
  2. Cut the onion into big chunks and mix the first 5 sauce ingredients and set a side.
  3. In a heated pan, saute the garlic and red pepper in vegetable oil over medium heat for 1 - 2 minutes. Add the potatoes and onion; saute the potatoes and onions for 5 minutes on medium-high until they are about ⅓ cooked. 
  4. After 5 minutes, add sauce mix and bring it to a boil with the pot covered. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the potatoes are tender and the sauce is reduced to a thick sauce just enough cover the bottom of the pan (about 7 to 8 minutes - less if you cut potatoes smaller). 
  5. Stir in the green onions, the rest seasonings and simmer (uncover this time to make it shiny) for additional 2 - 3 minutes until the green onions are wilted but still green.
