Stirfried Dried Anchovy Side Dishes (myulchi Bokkeum)

Maangchi's picture
The sundried anchovy side dish is one of the basic Korean sidedishes, usually eaten with a bowl of rice. This is really low calorie and high calcium so Korean parents regularly prepare it for their children. When I was going to school, this was one of the usual dishes we ate all the time. My mom always prepared it for my school lunch. In this video I make two kinds of myulchi bokkeum. One is sweet, crispy, and mild, the other is sweet, crispy, and hot spicy.
Ingredients
For mild myulchi bokkeum
  Dried anchovies 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Olive oil/Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Brown sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped garilc 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Water 2 Teaspoon
  Corn syrup 1 Tablespoon
  Sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Sesame seeds 1⁄2 Tablespoon
For spicy myulchi bokkeum
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Hot pepper paste 1 Tablespoon
Directions

For mild myulchi bokkeum
1. In a non-stick pan over medium high heat, add the anchovies, stir and cook for 1 minute.
2. Add in the olive oil and cook for 1 minute more.
3. Push the anchovies on one side reduce the heat and put brown sugar, garlic and water on the empty side of the pan.
4. Stir and cook for ½ a minute, add in water and corn syrup.
5. Tilt the pan and allow the garlic mixture to come to a boil.
6. Stir the anchovies and mix with the garlic mixture until it coats well.
7. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and drizzle sesame oil, and stir to mix.
