We know that cabbage is very healthy, bu cabbage doesn’t seem to get picked for cooking as often, compared to other vegetables. Why? Maybe because of its bitter flavor and tough texture? Or maybe because we just don’t know how to enjoy it much? Here, I brought one way to enjoy cabbage in a Korean side-dish called YangBaeChu SoSeJi BokkEum (양배추 소세지 볶음). You can simply use oyster sauce as the only seasoning, or you can also use a few more seasoning ingredients that I will list in more detail later. This stir fried cabbage covered with the smoky flavor from the hotdogs and savory oyster sauce flavor is just amazing.
Yield: 2 Cups
Short Korean Lesson
- OGakHyeong (오각형) = Pentagon
- YukGakHyeong (육각형) = Hexagon
The recipe starts at 0:26
- 2 Cups Cabbage (½ lb)
- 1½ Cups Hot Dogs
- 1 Cup Onion
- 2 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Cooking Oil
- ½ tsp Sesame Seeds
Obtain ½ lb of cabbage, 4 hot dogs, and 1 cup worth of an onion for this recipe.
Cut the hot dogs into ½ inch slices, and cut the vegetables into similar sized pieces as the hot dogs.
In a heated nonstick pan, add 1 Tbsp of cooking oil and the hot dogs.
Fry them for about 3 minutes on medium-high.
After 3 minutes, add the chopped vegetables.
Then add 2 Tbsp of oyster sauce. Fry for about 7 minutes, or until the cabbage is cooked as much as you desire.
This is the oyster sauce brand I like because it is delicious and very convenient to use for cooking. However, if you do not have oyster sauce, or do not like it, you can also season this side-dish with 2 tsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of vinegar, and ½ tsp of sugar instead.
After 7 minutes, sprinkle ½ tsp of black sesame seeds on top of everything and it is done.
It looks so delicious. 👏🏻😋
You can store this in your refrigerator and enjoy it cold for your daily meal with some rice, soup, and other Korean side-dishes.
