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


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.


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.
