Grilled Flanken Style Korean Short Ribs (Galbi or Kalbi)

Grilled Flanken Style Korean Short Ribs (Galbi or Kalbi) by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one in Bon Appetit and another from Chef John (foodwishes.blogspot.com). Chef John recommended blending an asian pear into the marinade to help tenderize the meat. I didn't have an asian pear, so I substituted a fuji apple and reduced the sugar slightly. I thought the resulting marinade, and ribs, were…

Korean potato side dish

Korean potato side dish by John Spottiswood

I always love these sweet and salty braised potatoes when they are served along with kimchi and various other side dishes at korean restaurants. I've always wanted to make them, and grilling Galbi gave me the perfect opportunity. I started with a recipe from maangchi.com and substituted a mix of sugar and mirin for the corn syrup…

Spicy Asian Grilled Pork Chops

Spicy Asian Grilled Pork Chops by John Spottiswood

This is an old favorite that I've made since my days living in Chicago. We lived near the main Korean part of town (near Lawrence I think) and frequently ate Bulgogi. One day I bought some boneless pork chops and tried to create my own marinade. This one is close. I do it somewhat by taste, and you can play with the quantities a…

Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Sesame Sauce

Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Sesame Sauce by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious healthy grilled side or main dish. In Korea, this is commonly served by street vendors, especially during the bitter winter. I enjoy it just as much during the summer. In Korea they dip the sweet potato into the sauce. I typically just split the sweet potato like a regular baked potato, and spoon the sauce over…

Gamja Jorim (Korean Glazed Potatoes)

Gamja Jorim (Korean Glazed Potatoes) by jason kim

Gamja jorim (Korean glazed potatoes) is another banchan (side dish) that we made recently that is appealing for its sweet taste and ease of cooking. It can either be made a little sweeter or spicier (with more red pepper flakes) so it appeals to both kids and adults alike (and foreigners too). Also, making them in large amounts allow…

Kongjaban (Korean Sweet Black Beans)

Kongjaban (Korean Sweet Black Beans) by jason kim

Today we made a healthy side dish to counter-balance all the meat we have been eating. It's called kongjaban (Korean sweet black beans), that has been pre-soaked for a lengthy time (to aid in digestion and reduce flatulence :) and cooked in some soy sauce. It's a sweet and nutty banchan side dish, and they are filled with a good dose…

Korean Gaeran Mari (Stuffed Egg Omelette w Cheese)

Korean Gaeran Mari (Stuffed Egg Omelette w Cheese) by jason kim

The wife is usually in charge of this Korean appetizer dish called gaeran mari (stuffed egg omelette) because it takes some finesse (which I lack) and real cooking skills to roll the omelette at the right time. So far, I have failed incredibly two times, simply because I started flipping/curling too early and it broke to…

Shrimp Udon w Fish Cakes & Poached Egg

Shrimp Udon w Fish Cakes & Poached Egg by jason kim

Udon, (or udong as most Koreans say) is a great noodle dish that can be enjoyed morning, day, or night. It is a popular dish in both Korea and Japan (where it originated), and you can find this tasty, instant version in most Asian grocers. When we get tired of the usual ramen variety, we like to change things up with udon noodles…

Korean Spicy Tofu

Korean Spicy Tofu by John Spottiswood

This is an easy and tasty dish to serve either as a small main course or as a side dish with other Korean food. The Korean recipe I have does not recommend serving it with lemon juice, but I think it cuts the saltiness and spiciness of the dish nicely.

Korean Dak Juk (Chicken Porridge)

Korean Dak Juk (Chicken Porridge) by jason kim

Though I have tried to avoid getting too personal on the blog, I must admit that this recipe has a bitter-sweet story behind it [sigh]. We are still experiencing record-breaking heat here in the Midwest (100+ weather!), and this is supposed to be the last day of the heat wave according recent weather experts. For some reason, the…

Vegetarian Japchae (Korean Glass Noodles w Vegetables)

Vegetarian Japchae (Korean Glass Noodles w Vegetables) by jason kim

The last time I made japchae (sweet potato noodles w vegetables) it came out a little bland and the noodles clumped together from not adding sesame oil. But this time, I finally got those two out of the way and made a flavorful dish that the entire family enjoyed..........
