What is Yubuchobap?

Yubuchobap (유부초밥) is a Korean inari sushi. “Yubu” (유부) means fried bean curd and “chobap” (초밥) means sushi rice. Essentially, yubuchobap is sweet & tangy vinegared sushi rice stuffed in fried bean curd pockets. These fried bean curd pockets can be found at Korean grocery stores and come in triangle/rectangle-shaped pockets.

Yubuchobap is a commonly enjoyed as a picnic food or for lunch boxes. This is a very nostalgic childhood food for me!

What you’ll need:

  • Ground beef
  • Soy sauce
  • Oyster sauce
  • Cooking rice wine
  • Honey
  • Sesame oil
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Carrots
  • Chives
  • Corn on the cob
  • Cooked rice
  • Neutral oil

How to make Corn Yubuchobap:

  1. Marinate the ground beef with soy sauce, cooking rice wine, honey, sesame oil and garlic.
  2. Heat neutral oil in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the marinated ground beef, diced onions, and oyster sauce. Cook until done, or about 5 minutes. Removed the cooked ground beef from the pan. Set it aside in a large bowl.
  3. To the same pan, add a smidge more of the neutral oil. Add the carrots and chives and cook until tender, or about 2-3 minutes. Remove the cooked veggies and transfer to the large bowl with the cook meat.
  4. Add your cooked rice to the large bowl. Using a spoon or spatula, mix to combine all the ingredients together.
  5. Using your hands, lightly squeeze out the excess seasoning liquid from the fried bean curd pockets. Gently open up the bean curd pocket and stuff it with the beef and veggie rice. Repeat this step with the remaining ingredients.
  6. To cut the corn, hold down the ear of corn and slice down the sides of the corn to remove the kernels. Try to keep the kernels intact in large pieces to add on top of the yubuchobap as a garnish.
  7. Place pieces of the cut corn on top of the yubuchobap. You may have to make them fit, almost tetris-like.
