Step One

Prepping The Potato

Peel the potato skin and rinse in cold water. Then cut the potato into small chunks. Small enough to fit a small spoon. Make sure the potato chunks are all similar in size, so all the pieces cooks evenly.

  • 90 Grams or 2 Garlic Bulbs 통마늘

In a sauté or frying pan, add the potato chunks and cold water.

  • 1.5 Cups 컵 Cold Water 차가운 물

Set the stove heat on high, put the lid on, and wait for the steam to leak. Once you see the steam leaking through the side of the lid, lower the stove heat to medium and cook for 5 - 6 minutes (keep the lid on).

TIP: Always start cooking the potatoes in cold water. Doing so prevents the potato pieces from melting/falling apart. When you throw the potatoes in boiling water, it will cook, but it will also break apart, melt, and not hold its shape.

Step Two

Spicy Braising Sauce 매운양념간장 만들기

Combine the following ingredients and mix well. Yes, you can make this sauce ahead of time. Just store in the fridge.

  • 1/4 Cup 컵 Soy Sauce (All Purpose) 양조간장

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술 GoChuGaRu 고춧가루

  • 1/2 Tablespoon 큰술 고추장 GoChuJang

  • 1/2 Tablespoon 큰술 Brown Sugar 흑설탕

  • 1 Tablespoon 큰술 Minced Garlic 마늘

  • ½ Teaspoon 작은술 Beef Dashida (optional)

  • 🌱YeonDu (plant based broth enhancer) 연두 (instead of Beef Dashida)

Step Three

Braising The Potato 조림 시작

After cooking the potatoes for 5 - 6 minutes, it should be semi-soft. It should not be too soft. The potato should be somewhat firm in the middle. Then add the following and mix well:

  • ½ Medium White Onion 중간 크기 양파 (cut into chunks)

  • Spicy Braising Sauce 매운양념간장

Turn the stove heat on high. Once the liquid starts boiling, braise on high heat for 2 minutes (move the potatoes around). Two minutes later, the spicy sauce liquid should be reduced to half (gravy consistency). Then add the following ingredients and mix well:

  • 1 Minced Scallion 다진 쪽파

  • Red, Orange & Green bell pepper (6 thin strips each) 파프리카 ( 레드, 오렌지, 그린 색상 )

Turn off the stove heat, and immediately transfer to a serving dish. If you let the potatoes sit in the hot frying pan, it will continue cooking and will get too soft and soggy.

Garnish with a light drizzle of sesame oil and a light sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Enjoy this dish with warm Korean rice. This spicy braised potato is made to be salty and spicy so that with warm rice, it will be perfectly balanced.

Bon appétit😋
