Recipe: Korean Jjimdak + Army Stew

A quick update before I disappear! Hahaha! Sorry, managing a blog is really so time consuming! Omg! 
Follow my on dayre instead if you're interested to stalk about my life! :P

Anyway, here is a recipe or rather, two recipes which have been sitting in my backlog. A Korean type of dinner that I've made for the family! :D  

If you could recall, I have previously made a Korean-style dinner for the family as well. 


Here! Click on the picture for the recipes! ^^



For this post I'm going to share with everyone one of my favourite food from Korea, Jjimdak,

Jjimdak is basically simmered chicken with potatoes, carrots and Korean sweet potato noodles as the main ingredients. It is so so so delicious and so so so underrated!

Ingredients:
1 kg chicken, cut and washed
3 potatoes, sliced
3 carrots, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 pack Korean Sweet Potato Noodles 
Handful of dried chilli (depending on the level of spiciness you want)
White sesame for garnishing

Seasoning: 
1.5 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Korean rice wine
1/2 cup sweet soy sauce 

Method:
1. Soak noodles in water for 20 min. Then drain water in a strainer.

2. Place chicken, carrots, potatoes, onion and dried red chilli in a pot. Pour seasoning sauce over the ingredients.

3. Boil without lid on high heat for 5 min. Lower the heat to medium and simmer without lid for 20 min. Skim off the foams. Stir every 5-10 min to prevent burning.

4. When the sauce has been reduced to half, add soaked noodles. Boil for 5-10 min on medium heat or until the noodles are fully cooked.

5. Dish and serve. 

I would say this is a really simple dish to make! ^^ 
This portion is good enough to feed 5 adults by the way. :)


Decided to go on to make army stew! One of my favourite Korean food~  

But but.. 
I don't know why I think that it is possible to finish all these food. LOL! 
 In fact this army stew itself could feed a village. Haha! :P 

Ingredients:
1 can spam, sliced
1 pack ham, sliced
  • 4 pieces hotdog, sliced
  • 1 piece instant ramen
  • 1/4 pack of sweet potato noodles, soaked
  • 1 cup Korean rice cakes/tteobbokki
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 leek, cut
  • Kimchi 
  • 4 tbsp gochujang (red pepper paste)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Method:
  • 1.  Bring a large pot to a boil before placing kimchi and sauce ingredients (gochujang, minced garlic and diced onion). Boil for about 10 minutes to soften the kimchi and enrich the broth.
  • 2.  Add spam, ham, hot dog and rice cakes. Cook for another 10 min.
  • 3. Add sweet potato noodles follow by instant ramen noodles and leeks
  • 4. Serve immediately before noodles soften and set at the center of the table where everyone can help themselves, or plate individually into separate bowls.
What I love most about army stew is the huge variety of ingredients in a pot! Makes a really wholesome dinner. ^^

But seriously.. this pot is good enough. Please don't cook so much like me! :X


Then I even went on the make Tteobbokki, Korean spicy rice cake (recipe can be found here). 

Now, I really have no idea why I have to cook so much! Hahaha! Btw, dinner was cooked for 4 adults. -.- 

But it was nonetheless a fun and therapeutic session with my kitchen!

Alright, till then~

Love,
Lirong.

Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com)..

  3. ALL THANKS TO UPSTART LOAN AM NOW FINANCIALLY STABLE . upstartloan@yahoo.com
    I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.
