Garlic stems

Maneuljjong 마늘쫑

The Korean word for garlic stems sounds a little funny in Korean: Maneuljjong. Maneul means “garlic.”

    Hi maangchi! I was excited 2 see this maneuljong. My boss was korean n i tried this at her home. When i asked about what kind of vegetable it is,she said indonesian doesn’t sell it. Now i know it’s garlic stem n i want to grow it in my garden. I don’t find the recipe 2 make this,u mention gamja bokkeum. Is it same wit, gamja jorim? How long to stir maneuljong? 10min?how many maneuljong do i need 2 adjust with the ingridients in your gamja jorim..?thank u!

    I have seen recipes for garlic stems or garlic scrapes, but no where can I find how to grow them? Other than a garlic clove in a small glass. What variety makes the long stems that you show under ingredients. Is there a way to do it hydroponically?

    My recipe for garlic stem side dish which is served at a korean restaurant, is similar to my recipe for potato side dish (gam ja bokkeum with soy sauce). I have never tasted steamed garlic stem side dish.

    Thank you very much. Are you the Cynthia living in California?

    I visited korea last summer and have been learning Korean cooking ever since.I love garlic stems,but only steam them. I would be so happy for some recipes. Thank you, you are my new hero,because all my korean cookbooks make sense after I have seen you do it!
