Algamja Jorim (알감자 조림) / Baby Potato Jorim

Another common side dish is algamja jorim (알감자 조림). It has a mild sweetness from the caramelized sauce. This is similar to gamja jorim except that it uses baby potatoes. I actually prefer this one cause i can keep the skin on, and it tastes better with it.

  • 15 baby potatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs corn syrup
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs cooking wine, mirin

  1. Wash the baby potatoes and scrub them clean.
  2. Put into a deep pan or wok and pour in the water.
  3. Boil on high until the water is reduced to half.
  4. Put the remaining ingredients and turn down the heat to medium. Boil for 20 min.
  5. Turn off the heat and sprinkle sesame seeds. The sauce should have caramelized.
