A delicious way to eat squash. This is a Korean dish that has been passed down to my from my mother. Out of all the Korean dishes I make, my roommates like this one the best!

MMMMMMMM...YUM! I have recently started to incorperate more zuccini into my diet(as it is not something that I really like). My husband and my best friend are not zuccini fans either and they LOVED it. This is definately a winner especially paired with two other recipes from this site Korean BBQ Beef and Korean Cucumber Salad as well and some jasmine rice. WOW WHAT A MEAL!...Rachel Read More

My mother and I were very disappointed in this dish. She didn't like the vinegar taste and I thought the soy sauce was overpowering (I used a reduced sodium sauce sauce). I think this would have been better if the onions and zucchini were stir fried and had a little bit of the liquid mixture added in for flavor. I did not care for how the squash boiled in the liquid for 20 minutes. I will not be making this again. Read More

yummy! I love Korean food and this turned out very similar to things I've shared with Korean friends. Yes it's salty...I might use less soy sauce next time but I'm pretty sure Koreans usually use this as a side to eat with the main course--and their sides are usually pretty salty. Read More

It was different! Basically the vinegar "pickles" the squash and the soy sauce and sesame and green onions give it a "Korean" flavor. My Korean roommates made a similar recipe (without the vinegar) using fermented shrimp (not always available at the local Piggly Wiggly) Read More

This looked a little scary when done as the sauce got very dark (I'll admit I eyeballed the quantities and I used tamarind instead of vinegar). I was afraid that the flavors were going to be too strong and salty. It was really nice though and had a kind of "meaty" quality to it. The squash was not mushy and falling apart and the sauce was almost steak sauce-y. Again that may have been due to the tamarind. Read More

This is absolutely delicious! It had a sweeter flavor than I expected. Word of warning that it does look rather ugly but it does taste really good! Read More

This was a very good way to make squash. I would cut back on the soy sauce a litte next time. I followed the recipe exactly and used a reduced sodium soy sauce. It would have been too salty if I used regular soy sauce. Goes very well with the Korean beef recipe from this site. Read More

OMG this was fabulous. Delicious and very useful for dieters (the only fat or significant calories are in the sesame oil). I used Mirin instead of sugar and I suspect that is more authentic. Find it in your Asian grocer's. Read More
