Braised baby potatoes (Algamja Jorim, 알감자 조림) is a popular Korean side dish. I used to love having these little babies in my school lunch box.

Baby potatoes are soft inside but outer layer is somewhat sticky because it’s coated with Its sweet and salty brine.

It’s perfect to serve over steamed rice. Hope you like them!

P.S. If you like this recipe, you might also like my soy sauce eggs recipe.

  1. Hi I have been looking for a recipe like this forever.. Do they sometimes cut the potatoes into cubes instead of leaving them whole?

    • The baby potatoes used in this recipe are pretty small already, so I didn’t cut them into cubes. However, yes, you can cut them into small pieces, so they cook faster!
