  • Category: small plates, sides
  • Cuisine: japanese


  • 1 pound boiling potatoes (Yukon Gold, Bliss, Etc)
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons salt (for boiling)
  • ¼ large onion
  • 1 Tablespoon neutral oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Mirin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 scallion trimmed and minced


  1. Wash and peel the potatoes (you can also leave the skin on if you prefer).
  2. Cut the potatoes into medium dice about ¾ inches in size. Place the potatoes in a pot with 4 cups of water and salt.
  3. Bring to a simmer over high heat and then lower the heat to medium high. Cook the potatoes for 5-7 minutes until just tender.
  4. Drain the potatoes and set aside.
  5. Dice the onion into the same size as the potatoes. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat for several minutes and add the neutral oil and onions. Stir fry for 3-5 minutes until soft, translucent, and starting to lightly brown.
  6. Add the minced garlic and stir.
  7. Add the potatoes, soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until the sauce is mostly absorbed. Add the sesame oil and sesame seeds and stir to combine.
  8. Transfer to a dish, garnish with scallions, and serve immediately.
