Honey Butter Japanese Sweet Potato

I always serve this dish with Tonkatsu. It is not too sweet and the flavors blend perfectly with the Tonkatsu sauce that is served with the pork.

 

1 sweet potato

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon black sesame seeds

 

Wrap the sweet potato in cling wrap and microwave for 3 to 4 minutes.* Cut into 1 1/2 inch thick strips.

Melt butter in a skillet and cook the sweet potato over medium heat.

When the potatoes are soft, add the honey, water and soy sauce to the pan. Mix well together and stir just until the liquid starts to turn to a syrup. Top it off with sesame seeds.

* Note:

Instead of putting this in the microwave, I cut the potato into wedges and cook it in the instant pot for 2 minutes. This can be done a day ahead of when you need it.
