Jagaimo no shittori amakarani / salty sweet potatoes

An easy potato dish with simple flavoring of soy sauce and brown sugar. The moist, crumbly texture gives this dish a low profile, allowing it to pair with other dishes very well while still having a strong, satisfying flavor.


2 medium potatoes (340 g in photo)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp rice vinegar (not in photo)


Skin and cut potatoes into 3-4 cm pieces.


Place potatoes in a pot, put enough water to cover, and cook on medium to medium low heat until potatoes are soft (a skewer or chopstick goes in smoothly).

Drain all water except for approximately 2-3 tbsp.


Put pot back on stove.
Add brown sugar, soy sauce and rice vinegar, and cook for a few minutes, roughly mashing large pieces, until crumbled potatoes absorb flavor.

  • This tastes good either hot or cold.
