I always love these sweet and salty braised potatoes when they are served along with kimchi and various other side dishes at korean restaurants. I've always wanted to make them, and grilling Galbi gave me the perfect opportunity. I started with a recipe from and substituted a mix of sugar and mirin for the corn syrup that was called for. It came out just like they do at the restaurants. Wonderful!

  1. Peel the potatoes, wash and cut them into ¾ inch cubes. Put the potato into a colander under running water to remove the starch.
  2. Chop the onion roughly into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. Add 2 tbs olive oil to a large saute pan over medium heat and put the potato into the pan. Brown for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the onion and continue to cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the minced garlic and sauté it until the potato is browning and the onion looks translucent.
  5. Add the soy, water, sugar, and mirin to the pan. Mix and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes until the liquid is evaporated.
  6. Keep stirring so it doesn’t burn. Add more water if needed (I didn't)
  7. When done, turn off the stove and drizzle 1 tbs of sesame oil and sprinkle a teaspoon of sesame seeds over top and serve with rice.

    These were a big hit with all of us. And because they are braised in liquid, they refrigerate well and taste great the next day, unlike many potato recipes.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

      I have never had this before. At the Korean restaurant I go to occasionaly...they have a lit charcoal grill at every table and the buffet is raw meat and vegetables that you take to your table and cook it yourself...and all you can eat!
      I must try this soon as I love Kim Chee!
