Korean Recipes

Hi, EF!

Since I noticed so many of you are into cooking, especially cooking Asian, I take the liberty to post a few of my home cooked Korean dishes.

If you want the recipes, either PM me,
or some of them I have on my personal blog.

I'll leave a link for those who are interested.

www.nayslife.com

I would love to hear what you think.
Have a nice week, everyone!

Nay

Re: Korean Recipes

Looks very delicious, thanks! I'm actually going to make some japchae tonight and it's great that I can find all the ingredients easily.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to get all the right ingredients for other dishes and a pain to have to go to France, Germany, and Switzerland to get it all!

Re: Korean Recipes

I've mastered the art of kimchi making, it's actually pretty easy. The only ingredients that you can't get at the Migros or Coop is fish sauce (in any asian shop) and red pepper flakes (buy at the Korean restaurant/shop just off Bahnhofstr. near the main station). The stuff lasts for weeks and gets better with age.

Hey! So nice to see this as I've been wondering the following questions forever! Anyone know a good place to find Korean recipes between Geneva and Vevey?? And what meat is best? In the US, I can easily go to a Korean butcher and get thinly sliced short ribs but here the butchers look so confused when I ask for the steaks "thinly sliced". Not to mention, its never thin enough by hand.

Hi, KeinFranzösisch!

It's funny bibimbop makes you miss DC.

But, the good news is cooking bibimbop yourself is easy peasy!
You just need to buy gochujang(pepper paste) but otherwise
The veggies and meet, rice everything is in Coop.

Just mix'em up and enjoy!
Nay

I know, it is a big pain. In Germany ( where I used to live), I used to order everything online but since I moved here everytime I come back from Korea, my suitcase is bursting!

Re: Korean Recipes

Yum yum!
The pictures in the original post (and on blog) remind me of going over to my friend's home (her mother Korean) or going out to dinner with them and having Korean food.

There were always a lot of little dishes with things to add to whatever you were eating, not just "regular" kimchee but also cucumber kimchee, some radish salad (looks like the recipe on blog?), something with spinach and sesame, some greenbeans also with garlic and sesame I think...

I used to get japchae often as it seems a bit like leftovers of all those neat dishes all thrown together - lots of flavor! I borrowed a cook book from a friend here and managed to make a passable bulgogi, hubby and I enjoyed anyhow - but there weren't any recipes for the variety of small dishes that would "usually" be served at the restaurant, so it was okay but not quite the experience I remembered.

One recipe my friend used to love (and I've not been able to replicate) also seems a bit of a "leftover delight" thing - Kimchee Gigae - (kimchee soup?) with beef and tofu and mysterious other things. With cool weather here, that's something I think would be quite warming!

You mean LA galbi, yes I know, I also had already several issues with butchers.
Do you know about this shop? I doubt it is between Geneva and Vevey but they also deliver per post. http://sushimore.ch/ have a look yourself.

Re: Korean Recipes

I have been always afraid of Korean food being to spicy, but apparently it must not be the case. Is there a big variety of Korean dishes when it comes to their spiciness?

@tomaszt

Yes, it could be very naughty and spicy but don't worry.
That's not the every case.

Sorry I can't help you out in those areas but I found that I could get most items in just a regular asian market. Fish and oyster sauce are used in other cultures so you can probably find those. The most challenging was finding the hot pepper paste (gojijang) because it seems to only be used in Korean cooking. I found a place in Germany that has it but maybe you can order online?

As for slicing beef, I know what you mean! I just buy it intact and super sharpen my knives before cutting

If you want additional recipes, I love http://www.maangchi.com/

Gochujang, you would find in most Asian shops. I wouldn't use fish sauce from other countries for Korean food.Especially Kimchi. There's nothing wrong with them, just the taste is completely different.

Can anyone tell the name of this restaurant / shop pretty please?

I'd like to check if they may have a website as I've asked at my regular Asian (Thai I believe) shop nearby and although they do sell canned kimchee, they do not have much Korean food / ingredients available, not even the right kind of red pepper flakes.
