Braised new potato with sweetened soy sauce


All you need for this dish are 2 ingredients and 3 condiments.

No cutting is required!!!! How wonderful is that?! haha

I've been trying a quarantine cooking which requires minimum ingredients as possible.

If you have potato in your pantry, please give it a try!

So simple, easy and tasty!

If you substitute chicken mince to mushrooms, it can be a vegan friendly dish also.

I hope you guys are all coping this <stay at home> situation well!

For myself, it's been quite challenging with two kids plus work, but not only a downside, two brothers are spending best time together more than ever!

Stay home and enjoy cooking!

I'll be happy to help your cooking ideas!

This will allow the potato to absorb all the seasonings. 2: Heat the 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a pan with mid -high, place potatoes. Cook it for a couple mins until the skin becomes nice and golden.Then, remove them from the pan. 3: In a same pan, add chicken mince and cook it until half way cooked.

- you can swap chicken mince to mushrooms if you are plant based.

-you can add carrot to inject more colors.


-new potatoes contains more water and has very thin skin and relatively small. Hence, you can cook them with the skin on. If you are cooking with regular potato, make sure to cut into big bite size pieces.

<Storage time>
