Oiseon – Stuffed Cucumber

Oi-seon (stuffed cucumber) was a Korean royal dish (Joseon dynasty.: 1392-1897) prepared by stuffing cucumber with meat filling, steaming them and then pouring chilled Jang-guk (clear beef broth) over them.

It was originally cooked over a slow fire, but to better suit, the modern preference for a more refreshing and crunchy texture, lightly fried cucumbers are slit, stuffed with sauteed meat and Jidan (egg garnish) and then dressed with a sweet and sour vinegar sauce.
