Korean Sushi

Hi,

Does anyone know what are in the Korean Sushi?

In Hawaii, Korean Sushi is one of the popular snack. But I want to know what to put in there. I want to tell me Korean friends in China.

I know it's something like shreded carrots, grilled beef, something green but not sure what vegetable that is. Then, wrapped with seaweed and rice. Cut like a Japanese Sushi. But tastes really different, no need wasabi or shoyu.

Most likely the beef is either bulgogi or kal bi. I'm not sure what the other vegetables are but it's probably just something simple like green leaf lettuce.

Were the vegetables raw or cooked? I'm pretty sure there's sesame seeds and sesame oil somewhere in there.

Loveseat, the veggies could be bracken, a fern called Kosari in Korean. To prepare:

Cut bracken into 2 inch lengths and stir-fry in 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon sesame seed, 1 teaspoon green onion, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic.

Every time a Korean freind or restaurant owner made me sushi (yeah, in Hawaii for the most part) it wasn't that different from Japanese sushi. So let me know what you come up with.

kimbop

I believe you are referring to Kimbop. We make this at home not often, but every once in a while.

The green vegetable is usually spinach. There is also often pickled radish (yellow) and scallion or cucumber, along with the shredded carrots, sesame seeds, etc. The rice is usually seasoned with sesame oil and sometimes mirin.

Sometimes you'll see egg and/or fake crabmeat instead of beef.


p.s. I had bulgogi for dinner last night .... yum!

My mom's Korean and I love love love Korean food (although I haven't found a Korean restaurant up to snuff yet).

Kimbap is a favorite comfort food. The green stuff is steamed spinach. She likes to use leftover bulgogi meat, egg cooked like a pancake and sliced into long strips, she also uses carrots that she'll slice and saute in a little sesame oil. Kimbap usually also has bright yellow yellow pickled daikon radishes. You can find them already pickled and packaged at Asian markets. Just slice it into strips and you're ready to go!

Yum. There's an Asian market around the corner that sells fresh kimbap next to the register. I'm leaving now!
