Isobe-Yaki Potato Mochi じゃがいも 磯辺焼き
Soft, chewy and delicious potato mochi entangled in a sweet soy sauce. The perfect quick, healthy and easy snack or side dish!

- 2 tablespoon soy sauce 30ml
- 2 tbsp sugar 25g-g
- 1 tablespoon mirin 15-25g

These are delicious 🤤, I've just made it. Yami yam! 🙏 Thank you!
I made these today and they were so delicious! The potatoes were crisp and soft on the inside. And the sauce was sweet and sticky the perfect combination. These will definitely be a new method of preparing my potatoes from now on! They are easy to make and so delectable! 😋
They were quickly done and tasted sooo good!
Very cool and easy recipe 👍 I made them yesterday. Very delicious.
Sooooo good! Your videos inspired me to try new things in the kitchen and I decided to start with this one bc I just so happened to have the ingredients. Such a great decision!!! I filled it mine with Daiya cheddar cheese slices and it was THE BEST. Gonna make this tomorrow for the whole family <3
So easy, so addicting, so good!
These mochi are just wonderful, quite quick and easy to make and incredibly yummy,they've just become one of my staples!
Loved it al lot, thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us! I am a huge fan of mochis, and this was quite cool to make for a first time!
Such a comforting, delicious snack! Insanely simple to prepare, and cute handheld presentation. The sauce...I don’t even have words. I reserved the extra portion for “dipping” but more realistically, will be drinking sips of it straight from the dish all night that’s how addictive it is.
Isna Cooks says
The potato version is SO DELICIOUS especially for people who dont like yam or sweet potatoes ect.! Such a simple side to add to your dinner. #vegan
BRB going to eat this forever
This recipe is delicious and so easy to make! I didn't have nori when I made these but will definitely make them again with the nori pieces. I dipped mine in a tiny bit of sriracha and omg they were so good. Thanks for sharing this great recipe! Can't wait to try more 🙂
Made it today 5/10/21 and can i just say its hands down now one of my favorite foods. Its so good
I found it easier to grate the potatoes rather than mash it. Other than that, I followed the instructions precisely (I didn't have sake so added in extra mirin) and it was delicious! I'm thinking of using the leftover sauce on some grilled onigiri!
This recipe was easy and so delicious! I loved the sweet glaze, will definitely be making these again! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Really delicious comfort food <3
Roberto Porres says
Delicious and very easy to make
I very love this manu it look cute and yummy 💕 and fun for cook it !!
Delightful little balls of yum! We put cheese in the center and it was the perfect complement to these delicious mochi.
Amazing!! I was worried I would mess it up with cooking the potato in the microwave (I fail at some simple things! Ha) but I saw Lisa say to someone on Instagram that the potato can be boiled. So I boiled it to be on the safe side, then followed the rest of the recipe as above. I don't have sake so used the extra mirin option. These are really easy to make and so delicious. Will be making these a lot! Thanks for sharing this! X
Really tasty recipe and so quick to make!
Made these the other day. Can't stop thinking about them. So easy and so yummy! The perfect snack/side dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Lisa!
Love that the recipe is quick and easy to make with just a few simple ingredients! Super flavourful and highly addictive! Not only did I like it, but my siblings did too! Will definitely make again! 😋💖
Ok...I should start off by saying I’m a terrible cook and I managed to make this and it was delicious!!! I can’t believe I was able to successfully make this because there’s always a 70% chance of failure when I try new recipes. I cannot wait to try out the other ones!!!!!
John Teehan says
This recipe was perfect! Quick and easy and tastes great! I had to leave the heat on the sauce for a few minutes longer to get it to thicken but it came out great!!!
It was sooooo tasty!!
Also, very easy to do!
I will definitely try them out again!! Thank you❤️
made this for my family and they all loved it!! will definitely make them again!<3
Super easy and delicious recipe, I tried it today for the first time and everyone liked it!!💞💞
This are really good!!! And super easy. Also I added garlic to the potatoes and 🤤🤤
Nice, delicous ans simple recipe. ♡♡♡
Just made these! Super tasty ~ will definitely make them again and probably make the patties smaller next time.
It is dangerous how delicious this is. Before you know it they're all gone! Very relaxing to make and can be paired with pretty much anything. I really can't wait to make this for my friends!
Easy and delicious. Can't wait to make more.
Ultimate soul food! Can't wait to make this again and just giggle with joy! So good!
So easy and delicious! Great way to use up extra potatoes. Will definitely make again!
These were delicious! Pretty simple to make and veryyy yummy.
Afton LeSueur says
These turned out so yummy. I made them with my nine year old daughter and they were really easy.
Soooo goood, the texture is amazing !
Samantha Minh says
This recipe was so simple and easy, and absolutely delicious! I didn't have sake, so I doubled down on the mirin, and am excited to see how the flavor changes with sake instead. I also tried these with a little chili oil and sriracha, and it was just *chefs kiss*.
Diandra Agapie says
These were so nice! I added some kewpie mayo and sriracha on top, it really was that kind of food that brings you instant joy! ❤️
Penny Smurthwaite says
Amazing recipe! Super easy way to use up cooked potato. I used a mix of regular white and orange sweet potato and it was veryyy nice indeed. Would really recommend trying this... the sauce is so sweet and tasty! Good with steamed rice abs spring onions too.
It was sooo fire.. Inspite of having some trouble and some need for substitutes it was delicious🤤
This recipe is amazing! Even my boyfriend who doesn't like sweet sauce very much loved it
I’ve made these twice in a week. These potato mochis are so easy to prepare and incredibly addictive. I love potatoes and these smell so amazing while cooking in a pan. I’m obsessed with the texture of them too! The 2nd time I made them I didn’t make the teriyaki sauce. They were delicious plain.
These turned out so good!! I modified the sauce recipe slightly and used coconut aminos instead, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I can’t wait to try it again!
Ever since I tried this dish. I must eat it at least once a week!! It’s so tasty I can’t get enough of it!
Made a substitute of Cornstarch and it worked wonders!! The sauce was brilliant too and gave the Mochi such a nice taste.
My bf loved it. They taste kind of like plantains.
These are amazing!! Made them w/ cornstarch and sweet rice flour 2 different times and both were great subs for potato starch since I didn’t have any. So flavorful, chewy, and easy to make!
This recipe was absolutely amazing! Except for boiling the potatoes (mine were apparently quite tough), the recipe is really quick and easy. I didn't use butter, but vegetable oil worked fine too. Absolutely 10/10 making it again 😀 maybe I'll try variations like with chili flakes, sesame seeds, something like that!
Emily Norberg says
OH EM GEEEEEE GUYS! This one was a banger! If you love potatoes as much as me then you have to try this one out. Actually super simple and incredibly delish. Must-have recipe for sure! Thank you Lisa, you've done it again!
Lisa pls this is so hood and addictive and packed full with wonderful flavors thank you so much for sharing it with us 💜💜💜💜💜
So easy. So yummy. Also easy to adjust to however much potato you have sitting around! I made it for a quick snack and it’s delicious! Used olive oil instead of butter. Will be making again and adding cheese!
Ricky Kan says
So fun to make! Honestly, it was really easy, and you can also put cheese in the potato balls too for that gooey effect! It was salty, savory, and slightly chewy and it made a fun meal for everyone in my family to eat. I will for sure find the time to make this again and everyone else should do too!
such an easy recipe to make and makes good use of leftover potatoes or sweet potatoes!!
Sue Ann says
Delicious! The classic Japanese flavours make this potato-based snack a real treat, especially when I've got some extra potatoes lying around. 10/10 will make again!
I tried this recipe and it's the bomb! So simple yet so good! It was my first time cooking a potato in the microwave oven but turned out perfect for this recipe. My partner also loved it!
INCREDIBLE!! First time making mochis and loved it. It was so simple, love the recipe!
made this a few times already coz it’s so easy & oishiiii!!
these are so yummy! made them as a snack for me and my hubby. easy to make. it’s one of those things you try to eat only 1 or 2 pieces but you just can’t help yourself lol
It was not easy to me, but the taste is really good✨✨✨
Odile Williams says
such an amazing recipe, mine turned out a little soggy but i think that was my fault.
Sofia M says
I love it! Recipe is so good and easy.
Definitely will cook it again!
Such a tasty and quick recipe! ^_^ いただきます！
We freaking love love love them 😍
They are pretty easy to make and taste just amazing^^
Lisa's insta always gets me trying new recipes and I'm so glad she does. These potato mochi are so satisfyingly crunchy and soft at the same time; sweet & salty on the surface and melt in your mouth potato goodness at the centre. I've found par-boiling the potatoes works just as well especially if your microwave isn't as powerful (also you can peel them first this way to avoid burning your fingers). I first made these at a friend's with a gas cooker and they came out perfectly, had to try a few times to get the same results back home with electric so make sure to get the pan nice & hot to get that sizzling crunchy caramelised exterior. Could eat these everyday.
These are so quick, easy, and delicious!!
Easy and delicious!! I loved it a lot. I will make this for my family as well 😀
this recipe is so easy! vegan, comforting, and a great way to start the morning! the way the sauce coats the mochi is incredible
i didn’t have potato starch or sake so i used more mirin and tapioca flour instead. they came out amazing! i will be adding potato starch to my pantry tho i’m sure it makes it even better!! 10/10 my new fav morning recipe
Thank you so much for this recipe. It was pretty easy and super tasty.
It was the very first time I cooked vegan!
I love all of your recipes ~
Me and my girlfriend love this recipe. It’s quick easy and super tasty. We’ve been trying more vegan recipes and Japanese food is a our favorite and once we found Lisa’s Instagram page we were hooked.
Made these as snacks for some friends on game night and they loved them. The recipe was quick and easy, definitely making these for others to try.
A quick and delicious way to take potatoes to the next level! These are now a family favorite 🙂
Bristol Lerner says
Super easy to make and they turned out delicious! Crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. The nori gives it a nice salty umami flavor which really makes the dish
Mackenzie Gidusko says
I already love potatoes but this made me love them even more, super tasty!
I loved these little things, you can just keep eating it! And I loved the hint of sweetness it had!
Maha Furrukh says
These were super simple to make and so delicious!! The sauce is perfect. I felt weird not seasoning the potatoes before pan frying but the sauce gives it all the flavor it needs. My partner and I made them three times in a week, and we’ve put ourselves in potato jail.
Taste really good !
Loved this recipe. Very easy to make and was very delicious and flavorful. The sauce was a perfect edition for the potato. Made this as a side dish for my husband and he loved it as well.
Made them today. So incredibly delicious and soft and crispy at the same time. I'll be making them more often from now on.
I loved them!
This is an original way to cook potatoes and I love it so much! It’s is tasteful and the texture is really nice
Asuka the Shiba says
Absolutely delicious little starchy delights!
I think I had a giant potato because my patties came out huge! If this happens to you I recommend simply making them smaller (hey, you get more that way!)
I unfortunately didn’t have vegan cheese on hand so I simply omitted it, but next time I will definitely be sure to have some!
Thank you for another killer recipe!
I've just done it and its delicious! and absolutely easy to make, I really recommend!. Also, I'm wondering what to serve them with as the best option, any recommendations? 🙂
This recipe was so easy to put together and tasted delicious! I went to Hmart for the potato starch and mirin and both were super easy to find. Really glad to have these ingredients on hand as they open up some other recipes for me to try too 😋 I loved the potato both and without the nori. Crispy on the outside and still sooo soft inside, honestly 10/10 it’s the perfect potato snack 💓
I made these for a TikTok video and the video was a huge hit, so thank you! They’re also delicious, so thanks for that too! I didn’t have potato starch, mirin, or sake, so I used cornstarch and rice vinegar, which turned out amazing!
Here’s the video if you’re interested! https://vm.tiktok.com/TTPdkTfyYj/
I was inspired to make this recipe by the new Pokemon Arceus game, and they were just as tasty and comforting as they look in the game! This recipe was also so simple to make, although I do recommend using a nice thin spatula to get the first flip perfect. Also - if your glaze doesn’t seem to be thickening enough, let it cool for a few minutes and it will get thicker. I’ll definitely make these again!
