Delicious Potato Banchan

Today we’re making an easy Korean dish that just requires a few ingredients. We start with sliced potatoes and then we add in some onions, green onions and garlic to make this side dish that’s best served with warm, white rice. This is great to make for when the kids get home from school, Parker loves eating potato banchan after it’s been cooled down. You can serve it right off the stove or you can chill it in the refrigerator and eat it cold.
