Garlic Shoot Bokkeum (Korean-Style Sauté Dish)

Garlic Shoot Bokkeum (Korean-Style Sauté Dish)

In Korean, "bokkeum" means "stir-fry"
It's a spicy refrigerator stock item.
Even when I make a large amount, it always disappears in an instant.


Garlic shoots
5 shoots
Garlic (finely chopped)
1 clove
● Dashida
1/2 tablespoon
● Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
● Sugar
3 tablespoons
● Honey
1/2 tablespoon
● Red chili pepper powder
1 tablespoon
Vegetable oil (for sautéing)
to taste


1. Chop the garlic shoots into 4-5 cm lengths.
2. Mince the garlic.
3. Add the oil and garlic to a frying pan and sauté. Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add the garlic shoots and continue sautéeing.
4. When the garlic shoots become tender, add the ● ingredients in the order of dashida, sugar, honey, soy sauce, then red chili pepper powder, and continue to sauté.
5. A bunch of garlic chives is about this much. When I weighed it out, it was about 85 g.

Story Behind this Recipe

I just threw together this Korean-style sautéed garlic shoots.
It turned out that these were my husband's favorite.
He said when his mother would make them in Korea, she'd stir-fry them with baby fish.
This is one of my husband and daughter's favorite dishes.
