This radish can be a substitute for the Korean radish when you can’t get it.

Do you know why daikon radishes are cut into big chunks when cooking Korean braised beef short ribs? Is it because they kinda melt in the stew when cooked for a long time?
yes, indeed! : )
I live in Cyprus and we don’t have daikon or Korean radishes here. The only ones that I can get are the small red radishes. Will those be ok in the kimchi recipe? We also have kohlrabi here, would that work? I know it can be eaten raw it’s not spicy like a radish.
Thanks for your help, my husband LOVES kimchi!
yes, small red radishes are good to make kimchi! Kohlrabi won’t work well I think because it’s not as crispy as radish or red radish. But you could use it for my radish soup and dried pollock soup recipe.
What is the difference between daikon and Korean radish? Can I also use daikon radish in making kaktugi kimchi? Thanks.
I would also like to know what the difference is between daikon and Korean radish. I can’t find Korean radish in my neighborhood, though there’s plenty of daikon!!
Korean radish is firmer and sweeter than daikon, so I prefer to use Korean radish for kimchi. However, if Korean radishes are not available around you, why not using daikon?
About the question I asked previously. May I noe if daikon can be eaten raw for salads?or we nid to blanch them 1st? And if we need to blanch them how do we retain the crunchiness of the daikon in the salad?
Daikon Radish is delicious raw.
You don’t need to blanch it. You can just slice it into disks or match-sticks, or even grating it would be fine.
I sometimes buy daikon radish just to cut into slices and eat with a little bit of red miso mixed with vinegar and sesame oil spread on top.
(The miso-vinegar-sesame oil thing is my own invention. :D)
May I noe if the daikon can be eaten raw cos I noticed that it has been used in some cold salads. Or we need to blanch them before eating?
Yes, you can eat it raw.
I need help please D-:
Do you know the name of this dish and how to make it?
yeah, it’s a kind of jangahjji which is a side dish that you can keep for a long time by storing it in the refrigerator. I will post some jangahjji recipe someday in the future!
hmmm, I’m not sure which dish you had in the Korean restaurant. check this out. I hope one of these is the recipe you are looking for.

I had a beef stew in a korean restaurant in HK that had daikon and carrots. Searching for the recipe! It was delicious and I think my kids would eat it too!
Aloha! : )
Check this recipe, I already posted the recipe.
Aloha from Hawaii! I have been searching for a cold side dish recipe for Korean radish. One of my favorites is either fermented radish with Korean peppers. It is crunchy with a nice kick from the peppers. I assume that there is garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, radish and peppers but I am not sure how much of each to use. Do you have a recipe for a side dish like this? If so, what is the name? I adore it but haven’t had a chance to try and make it at home. As always thanks so much for your assistance and MAHALO (Hawaiian for Thanks!)for providing the wonderful recipes and ingredient lists.
Hi I also have been looking for this recipe.
and finally found what I believe is it.
I was told it was called:
“Al Tarri Moo Kung Jung Pickle”
but had no luck chasing that name up.
Hope it’s what you were looking for.
