This dish is a popular food with kids for their lunch boxes in Korea. For some kids that do not like to eat veggies, this is one way that they will eat them. Korean sausage tastes different than the ones I found in America, but my dish turned out okay nonetheless. All of the ingredients taste delicious together. Once you make it, you can store it in the refrigerator and serve it cool. Try it someday.
Yield: 3 Cups
Short Korean Lesson
- YeoHaeng (여행) = Travel
- YeoHaengSa (여행사) = Travel Agency
- 2 Cups Mini Sausages (or Mini Hotdogs) (14 oz)
- 1 Cup Onion
- ½ Cup Green Sweet Pepper
- ½ Cup Red Sweet Pepper
- 1 tsp Sesame Seeds (Garnish)
- ⅓ Cup Ketchup
- 1½ Tbsp Cooking Oil
- 1 Tbsp Cooking Syrup (Sugar or Corn Syrup)
- 1 Tbsp Hot Pepper Paste
- 1 tsp Hot Pepper Powder
Obtain about 2 cups of mini sausage links. You can use mini hotdogs for this too.
Score both sides of the mini sausages. This helps flavor the sausages better and you will get a pretty pattern on the sausages. If you want, you can skip this step. You can also chop normal sized sausage links or hotdogs into bite-sized pieces instead.
Chop 1 cup worth of an onion, ½ cup worth of a red sweet pepper, and ½ cup worth of a green sweet pepper into 1-inch squares.
Add the sausages and veggies in a heated pan with ½ Tbsp of cooking oil. Fry for about 5 minutes on medium-high, or until the onion is almost cooked.
Push the sausages and veggies to one side of the pan to make space to mix the sauce. Add all the ingredients for the sauce and mix them together well.
Mix the sauce with the sausages and veggies. Fry for about 3 minutes on medium-high.
Sprinkle 1 tsp of sesame seeds on top and turn off the heat.
It looks cute and yummy, doesn’t it? 🙂 If you make a lunch box, try it. You can make the lunch box with rice, kimchi, some other Korean side dish, and this sausage dish. Enjoy!!!
