Kkaetnip Jangajji (Korean pickled Perilla Leaves)From oliviajasonkim 3 years ago
- •50 perilla leaves (aka kkaetnip) shopping list
- •1 cup soy sauce or light soy sauce shopping list
- •1/4 cup water shopping list
- •2 tbsp gochugaru (red pepper flakes) shopping list
- •1 tbsp sesame oil shopping list
- •1 tbsp rice wine shopping list
- •2 garlic cloves, finely minced shopping list
- •1 tsp sesame seeds shopping list
- •1/2 small onion, thinly chopped shopping list
- •1, 2 green onions, thinly chopped shopping list
- •1/4 cup Korean chives, finely chopped (optional) shopping list
How to make it
- 1.Wash each perilla leaf individually through running water and shake off excess water. Place in a colander until dried; set aside for at least 15 minutes.
- 2.In a mixing bowl, combine all the other ingredients together with the finely chopped onion, green onion, and minced garlic. In a tupperware or plastic container, place a spoonful of the sauce on the bottom. Add one perilla leaf then put another spoonful of the sauce to coat the leaf. Continue alternating the layers with a perilla leaf and the sauce until stacks are formed side by side.
- 3.Continue lathering the leaves one at a time until each one is covered with the sauce. If you run out of sauce, it will collect at the bottom of the tupperware. Reuse any runoff sauce to complete the process
- 4.Store in the refrigerator for at least a few days. When ready, serve as a side dish (banchan) with the main dish.
- *This particular side dish (along with regular gim, seaweed) is perfect with a bowl of rice. Many Koreans (with chopsticks in hand) simply wrap a single leaf around some rice and indulge in its deliciousness. The salty and sour perilla leaves with the sticky rice really go great together.
