Are they pickled? That seems to be the kind that are called for when I google'd recipes using them in various Asian dishes.

Japanese pickles are usually just served alongside meals.

It might be Preserved mustard tuber (zha cai) if it is its a Sichuan preserved vegetable usually stirfried with pork. It would have a crisp texture and taste would be salty, sour and spicy.
