Korean Recipes


Korean food is based around rice and noodles,with meat, tofu and vegetables. Spices and seasonings are used extensively, including some uniquely Korean flavors - these include doenjang (fermented soybean paste), garlic, ginger, gochujang (red chilli paste), salt and soy sauce. It is also traditional to serve meals with many different side dishes (Korean: banchan).

Some popular Korean dishes include:
  • Bulgogi - In Korean, bulgogi means "fire meat". Beef is thinly sliced or shredded and cooked over a grill. Other meats may be substituted, including pork ("dweji bulgogi"), chicken ("dak bulgogi"), or squid ("ojingeo bulgogi").

  • Dakgalbi - Seasoned chicken cooked over a charcoal grill.

  • Gamjatang - Spicy pork spine soup. As well as pork spine, vegetables, including potatoes and green onions, as well as hot peppers and sesame seeds, are used.

  • Gujeolpan - This dish was traditionally eaten by Korean nobility and royalty. In the Korean language, the name means means "dish of nine dishes", reflecting the fact that it is consists of eight separate small dishes, and pancakes. It is served on a special octagonal plate with eight side containers (used for the small dishes), and a center container (used for the pancakes).

  • Hoe - Thinly sliced raw fish, somewhat similar to Japanese cuisine's sashimi, dipped in either chogochujang which is a sauce made from gochujang (red chilli paste), or wasabi sauce, then wrapped in green leaves, and served on a bed of cellophane noodles ("dangmyeon").

  • Japchae - Boiled potato noodles with beef, carrots, onions and spinach.

  • Jeongol - A stew made using seafood and vegetables.

  • Jokbal - Pig's trotters cooked in soy sauce and spices, deboned, and served with a shrimp sauce.

  • Kalbi (or Galbi) - Pork or beef ribs cooked on a charcoal grill.

  • Kalguksu - Boiled flat noodles, usually in a broth containing anchovies and zucchini (courgettes).

  • Kimchi jjigae - A soup made using kimchi, pork and tofu.

  • Kongnamul-bap - Soybean sprouts served over rice.

  • Kongnamul-guk - A soup made from soybean sprouts.

  • Makchang - The Korean version of chitterlings - grilled pork intestines.

  • Maeuntang - Hot and spicy fish soup.

  • Ramyeon - Spicy noodles with meat and vegetables, somewhat similar to Japanese cuisine's ramen noodles.

  • Samgyeopsal - Pork belly meat (similar to bacon), flavored and seasoned with garlic, sesame oil and salt. The meat is cooked on an open grill and then placed inside lettuce or a similar leafy vegetable, along cooked rice and ssamjang (a spicy paste), before eating. Green chillies, slices of raw garlic dipped in ssamjang and spring onion salad, are common accompaniments, and these help absorb the grease from the meat.

  • Sannakji - A small live octopus, cut in pieces and lightly seasoned. The octopus pieces are usually still moving when the dish is served.

  • Tteok - A chewy cake made from either pounded short-grained rice, pounded glutinous rice, or glutinous rice left whole without pounding. It may be served hot or cold, and as a dessert or snack. It is also sometimes served with beef, mushrooms, onions, etc., as a light meal.

  • Yukhoe - A raw beef dish somewhat similar to steak tartare. The raw beef is shredded and topped with a raw egg yolk, then seasoned with asian (nashi) pear, black pepper, garlic, gochujang (red chilli paste), green onions, sesame seed, sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar.

  • Koreatown A Cookbook
Product Description:
A New York Times bestseller and one of the most praised Korean cookbooks of all time, you'll explore the foods and flavors of Koreatowns across America through this collection of 100 recipes.

This is not your average "journey to Asia" cookbook. Koreatown is a spicy, funky, flavor-packed love affair with the grit and charm of Korean cooking in America. Koreatowns around the country are synonymous with mealtime feasts and late-night chef hangouts, and Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard show us why through stories, interviews, and over 100 delicious, super-approachable recipes.

It's spicy, it's fermented, it's sweet and savory and loaded with umami: Korean cuisine is poised to break out in the U.S., but until now, the cookbooks have been focused on taking readers on an idealized Korean journey. Koreatown, though, is all about what's real and happening right here: the foods of Korean American communities all over our country, from L.A. to New York City, from Atlanta to Chicago. We follow Rodbard and Hong through those communities with stories and recipes for everything from beloved Korean barbecue favorites like bulgogi and kalbi to the lesser-known but deeply satisfying stews, soups, noodles, salads, drinks, and the many kimchis of the Korean American table.

No tsunami ever recorded on earth was as strong as the Korean Wave, which left a great impact on anyone who was hit by it. It was so strong that South Korea's influence, as we know it, has already had a huge effect all over the world. Their influence has waved through Asia, Europe, and America. It seems that there is no stopping them anytime soon.

Korean Wave or K-wave is most popular for K-pop music and K-drama series. People who listen and watch them started to love anything K, including the beautiful country’s bold and colorful cuisine.

Why not? The local cuisine is as interesting as its entertainment offerings. Makes us want to book a one-way ticket to Seoul just to eat them all day every day. No dollars to spare for travel? We got you covered. This Korean cookbook will satisfy your curiosity for popular K-food that is a staple at Seoul's top tourist destinations. You'll learn how to cook them on your own with easy to follow instructions. Plus, we already prepared trivia bits on the places where you will most likely eat them. That’s assuming you finally get a chance to travel to South Korea.
