  • Place potatoes in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 1 tablespoon oil and salt; toss to coat. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Stir, cover again, and microwave until fork-tender, about 2 minutes more. Drain well.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Whisk remaining oil, gochujang, soy sauce, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes together in the same bowl. Return potatoes to the bowl and toss to coat. Spread on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Roast in the preheated oven, stirring once or twice, until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Garnish with scallions and a drizzle of lime juice.

This has to be the worst recipe I have ever tried and that's saying alot. We are very adventurous cooks and eaters, but I really can't say one positive thing about it, and believe me, I followed the recipe precisely. Read More

The whole family loved these. The coating actually turned out more subtle than I expected. I'll probably make my potato chunks smaller next time to up the gochujang:potato ratio. Read More

This was very, very good! Followed the directions and the potatoes came out well roasted and full of flavor. My father and husband just loves them!!! The flavor from the fermented paste might not be for everyone, but this was far from “disgusting” as another person wrote. I will certainly make them again. If you have gochujang on hand, this recipe is definitely worth trying! Read More

I made a half-recipe exactly as per the recipe for ingredients, except I used half of a finely chopped serrano chile instead of red pepper flakes, because I was out. It turned out REALLY good and REALLY spicy. I cut my potatoes in approximately 1-1/2" chunks, and microwaved them about two-thirds as long as suggested. It seemed to me that if I put them into an oven for 20-25 minutes AFTER they were done, they would be a soggy mess. Anyway, they turned out great. I had some half-cooked cauliflower that I rolled around in the sauce and put in the oven with the potatoes. They tasted good, but the texture was mushy. I have recently discovered Korean chile paste and am a big fan. Yum! Read More

Family loved it. I used red potatoes, canola oil and only 1 tablespoon of Gochujang, no red pepper flakes, and lemon juice instead of lime. I used what I had in my panty already, so I only had to buy the Gochujang. Family loved them they had just a small kick of heat,my 2 year old granddaughter loved them. Read More
