Korean dae-pa are larger than the green onions you are used to, and are often used Korean cuisine in beef-based soups and stews. They are easily found in in Korean grocery stores. You can use green onions as a substitute but the dae-pa are sweeter and more aromatic.

      Leek and dae-pa are different. Large green onions, called dae-pa tastes sweeter than usual green onions (scallions).
