Stepf's Pickled GarlicSubmitted by: SP_STEPF
IntroductionThis is one of my favorite Korean side dishes. We eat it raw, throw it in stirfries, sauces, dressings, and pretty much everything else we eat! This is one of my favorite Korean side dishes. We eat it raw, throw it in stirfries, sauces, dressings, and pretty much everything else we eat!
2 cups fresh garlic (I buy it peeled in bulk from a warehouse club or my local Korean market. Definitely worth the slight extra cost.)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1 T red chili flakes
Place the garlic in a large glass jar with a lid.
Combine the other ingredients in a saucepan. Bring just to a simmer, then remove from heat and pour over the garlic. Add filtered water just to cover the garlic. Place the lid on the jar and shake a couple of times to combine. Allow to marinate at least overnight but preferably a week. Keeps for a few weeks in the fridge, but ours never lasts more than a week because we eat it so quickly!
