    I love Korean food. So much so that I started to learn how to make my own. Your website and videos have been very helpful.

    One recipe I can’t seem to find is for a side dish. I don’t know what it’s called but it is white, is sliced in thin strips and has a vinegar-like taste to it. The texture is like cucumber.

    Do you know what it is and do you have a recipe for it?

    Thank You.





    It must be “non-spicy muwoo saengchae”:무우생채 made with radish,salt, sugar, vinegar, and garlic. Its taste is like a pickle and crunchy.

    Here is my recipe for it,

    Cut radish into julienne style and sprinkle some salt, sugar, vinegar and set it aside for about 20 mintues.

    Squeeze the excess water from the radish and put it in a bowl.

    Add some minced garlic and mix it by hand. Serve it cold as a side dish or appetizer.

    The ratio of the salt, sugar, and vinegar is 0.5: 1: 1. I will post the video recipe someday in the future.

    If this is not what you are looking for, let me know more detailed description about the dish.



    Thank you so much for posting this recipe. My husband and I love Korean food (he was stationed there while in the Army).

    I’ve been looking for this recipe for a while now. Is it the same as Moo Chae or Moo saeng chae?

    Question on the recipe:

    Would this be about right:

    1 Korean Radish

    1/2 c salt

    1 c sugar

    1 c vinegar





    It sounds like Moosaengchae(fresh pickled radish) recipe, but I can say the amount of salt, sugar, and vinegar is too much for 1 radish! I will post the recipe later. Most people use hot pepper flakes and garlic in Moosaengchae.
