Korean Sweet Soy-Glazed Potatoes (Gamja Bokkeum) Recipe

We start by quickly shallow-frying small Yukon Gold potatoes until they're lightly golden brown. Once they've crisped up, the spuds simmer in a mixture of soy sauce, water, fish sauce, finely grated garlic, and sugar until they're tender and creamy.

A final drizzle of toasted sesame oil and a sprinkling of sesame seeds provides a hint of nutty bitterness and contrasting texture to balance the sweetness and stickiness of the glaze. It's a good thing that this recipe only takes 20 minutes to make because it will be in your side dish lineup from now on.

After a night’s rest, I woke up before dawn and drove to Ennis, arriving just as the sun was rising. Method: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
