Servings 4 servings


  • 4 ½ c. baby potatoes peeled
  • ½ c. water
  • ¼ c. soy sauce
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. dark soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds for garnish


  • This recipe is crazy easy and quick. Place all of your ingredients into a stock pot and add an additional ¼ cup of water. Cover the pot and bring it to a boil over high heat. When the mixture begins to boil, lower the temperature to medium-low and allow it to simmer (still covered) for 15-20 minutes. The potatoes should be tender but not falling apart.
  • When the potatoes are tender, remove the lid and allow the sauce to thicken by turning the heat up to medium-high for about 5 minutes. When the sauce has thickened, remove it from the heat and add the sesame oil. Then garnish with sesame seeds and serve!
