Cooking Tips for Korean Glazed Potatoes
Getting More Browning On Your Potatoes: The easiest way to get the most browning on your potatoes is to have flat sides. Cut your potatoes in half and if you have some potatoes larger than others, you can cut them in quarters. The most important thing to keep in mind while cutting them though is they should be around the same size so they are finished cooking at the same time. No one wants to bite into a mushy potato then a raw crunchy one, bleh!
When the Potatoes Need Extra Care: As the potatoes finish cooking, the sides without the skin will become much more tender. Gently stir the potatoes while cooking to prevent them from splitting or becoming mushy.

Korean Braised Honey Potatoes - Gamja Jorim
- In a bowl, combine water, soy sauce, and honey. Mix together until honey is dissolved. Set aside.
- Heat a large pan to medium-high heat. Add about a tablespoon of oil then toss in baby potatoes. Cook about 5 - 7 minutes or until they’re golden, stirring occasionally.
- Pour in the sauce and cook for another 15 - 20 minutes, or until the sauce has absorbed into the potatoes and become a sticky glaze. Remember to stir them occasionally so they don’t burn or get stuck to the pan.
- Turn off heat. Drizzle on sesame oil and sprinkle on sesame seeds, if desired. Enjoy!
