Traditional Korean Recipes

Octopus on a Stick (Nakji Gguri)

I couldn't get my mind off that nakji gguri I had a while back, so I thought I'd try to make it at home. Nakji (little octopus) was on sale, so I picked up a pack. Also, this was a good time to use my jar of Airborne Thyme Honey, which I received as a gift recently....

Korean Carrots (Koreyscha Sabzili Salat)

Korean carrot salad, pronounced Koreyscha Sabzili Salat in the Uzbek language, is ubiquitous throughout the former Soviet Union. The dish was invented by Korean immigrants to Russia's Far East and the recipe would have stayed there if Stalin hadn't forcibly deported...

Spring Herb Dishes of Korea

Clockwise from the top left are seawater tofu, dallae (달래 - small wild onion or Allium monanthum), naeng-yi (냉이 - Capsella bursapastoris), and godeul bbaegi (고들뺴기 - Crepidiastrum sonchifolium).  With...

Fresh Tot (a.k.a. hijiki) 3 Ways

One thing I miss about living in Korea is the abundance of sea vegetables.  Although more people are now aware of and have found applications for a couple of kinds of dried seaweed in the U.S., such as...

Kimchi Dakgalbi

Korean barbecue depends on the quality of the marinade. Diners might not have the well-trained sense of a sommelier, but they will detect a difference even if they can't identify exactly which ingredient they are noticing in a good or bad way. There are two basic...

Bulgogi – The Costco Way

You loooooooooove bulgogi, but you don't want to go out to a Korean restaurant. You're still jonesing for some of that awesome Korean grilled meat, yet you don't know how to make it at home. Maybe you think prepping bulgogi at home is more difficult than it really is....

Cooking Video – Crispy Bibimbap

Just in time for Halloween, not that I intended that in any way or I can force any relations between bibimbap and Halloween, here comes my first self-produced cooking video on crispy bibimbap.

Street Food at Home: Ultimate Rabokki

Every now and then I get the craving for junk food--Korean junk food. Rather than ordering some rabokki from my local kimbap shack, I decided to make my own while cleaning out my refrigerator in the process. Yeah, it's more bunsik than street food, but semantics were...

Modern Recipes

Pampered Chef Korean BBQ Sauce & Kkeanip Bison Tacos

Pampered Chef, a direct seller of kitchen tools and culinary products only through independent salespeople, offers a modest line of culinary sauces — the Pampered Pantry — and marinades. One of the more recent additions is Korean barbeque sauce. This particular sauce...

Korean Cheese Corn

I won't say that Koreans are obsessed with the dairy-and-corn combination to the degree that those of us with European genes are with chocolate and hazelnut, but it's close. In Korea, one can easily find kernel conspicuously piled on pizzas and stuffed into ice cream...

Kimchi Okonomiyaki

Since I have a large half-used bag of 부침 buchim pancake mix begging to be brought onto the front lines of my kitchen, I decided to make kimchi okonomiyaki. I'm always in such a hurry — 빨리 빨리 bbali, bbali! So what could be better than adding kimchi to the popular...

Lotus Root Pizza

Lotus root doesn’t taste like much but it’s a decent source of B vitamins, vitamin C and high in fiber.

Easy Kimchi Deviled Quail Eggs

[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:11] Normally, I would have garnished them with something like gochugaru or chiffonade sesame leaves. But the baby was also eating these. She can handle a little bit of spice but not much. These were gone in fifteen minutes.

Korean Fried Chicken Nuggets

I received a box of Kikkoman Kara-Áge Soy-Ginger Seasoned Coating Mix courtesy of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program to review. I didn't sign up for it the first time around because I couldn't think of a Korean way to use this classic Japanese cooking technique. By the...

Tex-Mex Bibimbap

Korean food purists walk away. One evening last week I took over dinner prep and thought I'd make some chicken burritos. Got everything ready and then took out the tortillas. They'd grown a bit of mold. Each one. So I was stuck with the ingredients I had put together....

S'more Gyeongdan

S'mores!  The combination of graham crackers, gooey marshmallow and chocolate is an American classic that has found so many sweet applications, like cupcakes, bars, shakes, etc.  So it's only natural that I try my own take on s'more for an easy sweet-tooth fix......

Korean Fish Tacos

The modern fish taco was born in Baja California, although different kinds of fish tacos have been part of that Mexican state's cuisine for centuries. I made a Korean fish taco with 된장 doenjang-glazed cod, Korean pear salsa and coleslaw (shredded cabbage or lettuce...

Experiment: Korean Petit Fours

Trying to get into baking. I have an oven--something that is not too common in Korean households. So I should take advantage of it. I made a successful Coconut Rum Raisin Pound Cake a few weeks ago. Then I tried my hand at a Coffee Angel Food Cake, which ended up in...

Korean Kitchen Hacking

Recipes for kitchens in Korea

Korean-Cajun Dirty Rice and BBQ’d Shrimp

I'm trying to prove to EJ that I can cook within a budget. So yesterday I set out to a supermarket and the open air market looking for what was cheap and in season. Vegetables have mistaken themselves for another food product because they are NUTS! Only beans and...

Korean Kitchen Hacking: Fresh Lemon-Ginger Ale

I think I got whiplash from spring rushing by so quickly. Bring on the summer heat! A little over ten years ago I learned from Ming Tsai's old TV show how to make an easy ginger ale. Since ginger ale was cheaper than actual ginger at that time in Alabama, I didn't...

Korean Kitchen Hacking: How to Make Goat Cheese

Korea has been considered the last Asian frontier for westerners trying to obtain culinary comforts from home. South Korea's relative isolation (thanks to water masses and the crazy brother to the north), low immigration rate and local pride/stubbornness in its own...

Alkongi's First Children's Day

Yes, I know it's a bit creepy for me to make a big deal about Children's Day for a fetus. (BTW--Alkongi has graduated from embryo to fetus stage.) But Eun Jeong was craving something fresh, and I wanted to treat them both to some good food that was both healthy and...

Rice Cooker Series: Biscuits for Strawberry Shortcake

Things come together at different times.  It's been a while since my last rice cooker recipe, but not for the lack of trying.  Frustration builds when you are focused on getting a specific result rather than enjoying the process along the way.  I rarely throw out food...

5 minute Korean chocolate mug cake

Posted by Tammy Many Korean apartments and condos do not have ovens (as many expats discover after moving to South Korea). Having to adjust to cooking without a major appliance can make it life in the "Land of the Morning Calm" difficult if you enjoy baking. This is a...

A Journey in home-made barbecue

Vacation from Crestock Creative Photos Posted by Steve Ward My contract finishes this week and I found myself at the end of the year with some vacation time left, so this week I'm off all week, trying to get some rest. ...only it hasn't been very restful so far, as I...

Ask ZenKimchi: Baking Soda vs. Baking Powder

Here's a question from Lori: Hi guys! Love your blog. Wondering if you could answer me a question about baking soda and baking powder here in Korea? I heard that these are switched here in Korea and you should use BS if a recipe calls for BP and vice versa. I've been...

Rice Cooker Series – Carrot Cake

Posted by shinshine After learning a lot about rice cooker baking from a great blog that's dedicated to no-oven baking (in Korean), here is what I came up with.  Many of her rice cooker baking recipes center around foam cakes (folding in egg white foam to a base cake...

Mammy's French Toast with Tangerine Compote

We had a nice quiet Christmas in the ZenKimchi household.  I didn't even bother doing any herculean feats of cooking.  But I did make my Eun Jeong a nice breakfast featuring her favorite, Mammy's French Toast.  Mammy was my great-grandmother who could make any food...
