Easy Daikon Namul

Easy Daikon Namul

Stir-fried daikon namul goes great with bibimbap, but is also perfect as a palate-cleansing dish. It's also delicious seasoned with a kick of chili pepper.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Daikon radish
15-cm long piece
Garlic (grated) (Recipe ID: 2322784)
1 clove
Beef stock (dashida)
2/3 teaspoon
Sugar
a pinch
Salt
a small amount
Pepper
a small amount
Sesame oil
2 teaspoons
Toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon
Water (if needed)
2-3 tablespoons

Steps

1. Peel the daikon radish, and julienne it with a vegetable slicer.
2. Heat a frying pan, and cook the daikon radish in the sesame oil. Once the daikon radish has wilted, season with the garlic, beef stock, pepper, salt and a pinch of sugar.
3. Cook the daikon radish to your liking. Namul with a crispy-crunchy texture is delicious, but so is soft namul.
4. [Note] You can also stir-fry it with this namul stock instead (Recipe ID: 2357837).
5. Once it's finished frying, turn off the heat, and sprinkle over the toasted sesame seeds to finish. This is delicious served in bibimbap!

Story Behind this Recipe

When my children were young, they thought that the daikon namul (sweet and sour flavour) in bibimbap was too sour, so I came up with this one. They still love bibimbap with both this namul and sweet and sour namul.
