Here are some outdated posts on my attempts to try a few dishes over the past two weeks ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ
Actually, I wanted to take the easy way out by mixing all the ingredients with the dangmyeon aka tanghoon in the wok. I didn't do that in the end. I stick to the Korean way of cooking Japchae and I was pretty satisfied with the end result ^^
I tried cooking 북어국 Dried Pollock Soup using the recipe from Maangchi. It was not difficult at all! Much more easy than cooking Japchae ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ I added a lot of sesame oil becos I love sesame oil.
|Fried Chicken? 그래 ^^|
Recipe is taken from Maangchi.
|Preparing the sweet, spicy and sticky sauce.|
|Mum and sis said not bad but I find there's a lot to be improved!|
|Stir frying Kimchi in a pot. |
Oh, any idea to what I was trying to cook??
|Next, I added some rice.|
|Followed by the broth which I cooked earlier(using anchovies and kelp), together with some kimchi broth as well.|
|I added some chopped squid a few minutes before I switch off the gas so that the squid taste chewy. Last but not least, some sesame oil and a bit of 멸치 액젓 anchovy sauce to add flavour.|
|오징어 김치 죽 My Kimchi Squid Porridge.|
I added some dried laver, sesame seeds and spring onions as garnishing.
Actually, I always prefer my porridge to be more watery but I love my 오징어 김치 죽 ㅎㅎㅎ
A big thanks to Aeri for her wonderful recipe on Kimchi Juk for reference.
|You can guess what dish is this, isn't it?|
|Browsed through a few online recipes.|
I used pork belly, onions and potatoes.
Basically, I prefer my 짜장면 to be simple.
Don't like 짜장면 with too many ingredients and don't like my 짜장면 to taste sweet.
|Added the sauce, a bit of brown sugar and some water mixed with corn starch.|
This picture was taken before adding 3 cups of water.
|I cooked the noodles and ran through it with cold water several times.|
|Somehow I feel my 짜장면 is more like spaghetti LOL|
My parents said it tasted fine but I am so very NOT satisfied.
Something is not right somewhere but I am not sure where!!
It lacks the oily texture that I like; not that oily if you know what I mean.
|Ermmm...now it feels like our black Hokkien mee LOL|
