I thought it would be fun to share a bunch of the dinners I've made over the past few weeks with my major Korean food shopping haul. Once a quarter, we hit up H-Mart and buy a massive amount of Korean food ingredients. For about three weeks after that major shopping event, we eat tons of really delicious (and slightly more complicated) Korean foods. I love it because it's all of the foods I grew up on and it makes me a bit nostalgic and also, it's the type of food that my stomach (and body in general) best tolerates.
cheese rabokki using fresh dduk. Seriously, nothing beats ddukbokki made with fresh dduk.
When the weather gets chilly and Daylight Savings Time ends, I tend to do a lot of prep work on Sundays so that I can get dinner on the table a bit quicker during the week. It sucks to get home when it's already dark; it's depressing so having a few pre-made items ready for dinner always helps. On this particular sunday, I made a big batch of julienned radish kimchi and I marinated pork belly for jeyuk bokkeum and I marinated some kalbi.
During the week, we ate a delicious crab jjigae with fish cake side dish and mung bean sprouts.
Later in the week, I made bossam to go with the julienned radish kimchi I'd made on Sunday.
Coming home to seasoned pork is great because you can just chuck it in a pan and put on some rice and you're good to go.
Korean-style broccolini and some spicy stir-fried oyster mushrooms.
On the day I decided to cook the kalbi I'd marinated earlier, I made a big batch of soon tofu jjigae to accompany it because when the weather starts to get chilly, we shovel hot soup into our mouths to keep warm.
One night I made a spicy version of chicken kalguksu. It ended up being almost overwhelmingly spicy, but it hit the spot.
I found some kielbasa in the freezer so I defrosted it and made a modified version of omurice with a sunnyside up egg.
I made seafood jeongol with monkfish and crab.
kalbi seasonings so I cooked some of that up too.
I thought instead of a traditional "recipe round up" this would be a fun way to share some of my older recipe posts. I hope you liked it!
