When white daikon radish went on sale for only 9 cents per pound, I did what I had to do – I bought pounds and pounds and pounds of it, found different ways to cook it, and ate nothing but daikon radish for two weeks. It was awesome! 🙂 So here is a list of dishes that you can make using white daikon radish. Let me know if you can think of more items!
- braised beef dishes (see recipes here and here)
- Vietnamese beef noodle soup (pho tai) (see recipe here)
- steamed cake (lo bak go) (see recipe here)
- pickled condiment (see recipe here)
- soup (see recipe here)
- pan fried dish with beef
If you’ve never cooked daikon radish before, I should warn you that the cooking process releases an unpleasant odour. But once the radish is fully cooked, the smell goes away, and the radish has a mild flavour.
