Korean Food Party
Tried out some new korean recipes today, and had tested it on some tasters who don't usually seek out korean food. They tried a little of everything, and said it was interesting. And most of the ribs were gone. Which is a good sign.Clockwise from left: white rice, bulgogi, korean fish cake, korean squash, braised asian short ribs, sauteed green beans, bean sprouts, and grape tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Note: for the Bulgogi, I used the recipe from Jenny Kwak's cookbook Dok Suni: Recipes from my mother's kitchen. Marinated overnight. It was very tasty. Used the kiwi juice, and it gave a wonderful sweetness to the thinly sliced beef ribs.
Also, I bought these korean fish cake that were made fresh at the asian market. I've never tried them before. They were sweet-ish, and the peas and carrots in them gave it a nice texture. I steamed it, and cut it into slices and the kids seem to like them with their rice.
