Dak Galbi

Dak Galbi is a Korean dish made of stir-fried chicken and vegetables.  And it's damned tasty, too.  We made this for a dinner party with some friends and they seemed to agree.

Yield: 7-8 servings
With a repeat appearence as full chef: Gwen.


  • Half head of green cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • 1 very large potato, cut into 1.25" cubes
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 400g rice cakes.  (Not those crispy things that taste like cardboard)
  • 4 large chicken breasts, cubed
  • Sauce
    • 6 tbsp red chili paste
    • 6 cloves garlic, minced
    • 3 tbsp soy sauce
    • 2 tbsp sesame oil
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 3 tbsp sugar
    • 6 green onions, chopped
  • Cooked rice


  1. Chop the vegetables and set aside.
  2. For the sauce, combine the chili paste, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, water, and sugar.  Mix well.
  3. In a large wok, cook the vegetables and chicken in some oil over medium heat until the chicken looks cooked.
  4. Add the sauce and green onions and bring to a simmer.  Cook for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked and the sauce thickens, stirring frequently to avoid burning.
  5. Serve hot over rice.
