Ueong, or greater burdock root, is a root with a unique firmness and flavor. Give this dish a try as a side dish along with rice.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 large greater burdock root (ueong 우엉), available in most Asian markets (brown colored, long and narrow)
  • 6-7 pieces garlic
  • 1 small piece (2-3") ginger root
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup of anchovy stock (1 tbsp of anchovy powder with 1 cup of water)
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp rice syrup or corn syrup (mulyeot 물엿)
  • 1 tsp roasted whole sesame seed

Recipe Steps:

  • Wash and peel off the skin of burdock root. Slice thinly then cut matchstick style. Soak it in vinegar water (1 cup water & 1 tsp vinegar) or about 10-15 min stirring a couple of times. Drain and set aside.
  • Mince garlic and ginger. Sauté in a frying pan with some oil. Then add cut roots, and fry for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Make anchovy stock by boiling 1 tbsp of anchovy powder (or 2-3 dried anchovies) and 1 cup of water. Set aside.
  • In a 4 qt sauce pan, put fried roots, soy sauce, sugar and anchovy stock. Bring to a boil and cook on medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the stock almost disappears.
  • For the last 5 minutes, cook uncovered, and add the corn or rice syrup. Remove from heat and garnish with sesame seeds. Use as a side dish for rice.
