Just like my Korean mum makes it! It's delicious! Even better if rolled up in lettuce with rice and hot chilli paste. If you want to spice it up just add red chilli powder to your marinade. (You can purchase the hot chilli paste and red chilli powder at your local Chinese or Asian shop).
Finely chopped cabbage, grated carrots, egg and soy sauce are mixed together to form a burger. The burger is fried and served between two slices of toasted bread. If you're feeling extravagant, add a slice of ham.
Said to be amongst the top 5 healthiest ingredients/condiments in the world, kimchi is a traditional Korean fermented vegetable pickle. It is traditionally served with grilled meats or stir fried with rice but is becoming a very popular garnish right here in London on everything from a cheeseburger to a burrito. On salads and sandwiches it gives an amazing hit of warm sour chilli, garlic and ginger. Try a grilled ‘kimcheese’ sandwich: good sour dough, strong cheese and kimchi – heavenly! With the added value of being raw and probiotic - full of good bacteria - it ticks all the right boxes!
Marinated beef strips and vegetables are barbecued or grilled. Best served over rice, with spring rolls and Korean cucumber salad (from this site)!!
This is the recipe for Korean-style (brown) seaweed soup. It's a traditional birth dish in Korea and every women who gives birth eats this soup because they believe that seaweed soup helps their milk production. Look for dried seaweed in Asian supermarkets or buy online.
Along with kimchi, bibimbap takes its place among the most popular foods in Korean cuisine. In the Korean household, it's a traditional way of using up rice and leftovers. Literally meaning 'mixed rice,' it's rice with stir fried vegetables, strips of beef, flavoured with a spicy pepper paste and topped with a fried egg. Delicious!
Homemade kimchi, a Korean dish made by fermenting cabbage with chilli flakes and garlic, is a great spicy addition to any dish.
The Korean dish Bulgogi literally translates to 'fire meat'. Also popular in China and across Asia, 'fire meat' offers a refreshing change from standard fare recipes. An ice cold beer is recommended with fire meat. Delicious and easy to prepare.
Inspired by the Korean beef ribs my grandfather always made for special occasions. Have your butcher trim, split, and debone a whole leg of lamb for you. Make the marinade (which is also good on ribs, steak or pork) and marinate overnight. Barbecue the meat to desired doneness. Slice to serve. We like it wrapped in flour tortillas or pitta with chopped lettuce.
Strips of marinated beef are stir-fried with onions, carrots, cabbage and noodles. You could use strips of pork fillet or chicken breasts if you prefer.
