Mealthy Tip

When shopping for your kabocha squash, look for one that's heavy for it's size. That's how you'll know that it's holding a lot of moisture and, therefore, super fresh. The skin will be bumpy and look dull. Apply gentle pressure all over and make sure it doesn't have any soft spots.

I really enjoyed this dish! It paired perfectly with rice and an onion soup that I prepared on the side. I rarely think to cook kabocha, but I'm so glad I did.

Using kabocha is a nice switch from zucchini. I really like this method of braising them in mushroom broth. It's a great side dish to Korean beef.
