Spicy Potato Side Dish

Another easy side dish recipe; sorry for the lack of step-by-step photos, I forgot to snap as I cooked! I like making this when we don't have any warm banchan to eat with our rice.

1 potato, cut into bite-sized cubes
1 teaspoon Korean hot pepper flakes (gochugaru)
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon Korean hot pepper paste (gochujang)

Start by cooking the potatoes in boiling water just until they're barely tender (took me just 5 minutes). Then, in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the hot pepper flakes in the sesame oil until they start to sizzle. Then add in the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, and hot pepper paste and stir until the pepper paste dissolves. Then add in the potatoes and stir around in the sauce until coated. Let them cook for a few more minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated.

The potatoes should still be a bit firm and be slightly sweet and sticky, spicy, and salty.
