    How to Cook dishes from Korea

    Korea Korean food is based on noodles, rices, meat, vegetables and tofu (known in Korea as "dubu"). Meals are usually served with many side dishes ("banchan"), as well as steamed rice, soup and kimchi (fermented vegetables, most often cabbage but sometimes cucumber or radish). Spices and seasonings are widely used, including doenjang (fermented soybean paste), garlic, ginger, gochujang (red chili paste), salt and soy sauce.

    Some popular Korean recipes and dishes include:
    • Bulgogi - Literally translated from Korean, Bulgogi means "fire meat". The dish consists of beef, shredded or thinly sliced, then cooked on a grill. Other meats may be substitued to create variations: chicken ("dak bulgogi"), pork ("dweji bulgogi"), or squid ("ojingeo bulgogi").

    • Galbi (or Kalbi) - Beef or pork ribs cooked on charcoal. A similar dish made using seasoned chicken is known as "dakgalbi".

    • Gamjatang - A spicy soup made using pork spine, potatoes and other vegetables, and green onions, hot peppers and sesame seeds.

    • Gujeolpan - Literally translated from Korean, Guljoelpan means "dish of nine dishes". This is a very elaborate meal, traditionally eaten by Korean nobility, which is served on a special plate divided into eight octagonal side sections, each containing meats and vegetables of a different type and color, and a ninth center section containing small pancakes.

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

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

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Maeuntang - Hot and spicy fish soup.

    • Makchang - Grilled pork intestines, somewhat similar to chitterlings.

    • Ramyeon - The Korean version of Japanese ramen noodles. Spicy and cooked with meat and vegetables.

    • Samgyeopsal - Pork belly (similar to bacon), flavored and seasoned with garlic, sesame oil and salt, cooked on a grill. Slices of meat are placed inside lettuce or another leafy vegetable, along with cooked rice and ssamjang (a spicy paste). Green chillies, slices of raw garlic dipped in ssamjang and spring onion salad, are common accompaniments.

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

    • Tteok - A sweet dessert made from glutinous rice flour - there are hundreds of different variations.

    • Yukhoe - Raw beef, topped with a raw egg yolk, and seasoned with black pepper, garlic, gochujang (red chili paste), green onion, nashi pear, sesame seed and sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar.

    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.

    My Rice Bowl: Korean Cooking Outside the Lines

    Product Description:
    From James Beard Best Chef-nominee Rachel Yang, My Rice Bowl is a cookbook with 75 recipes based on her deeply comforting Korean fusion cuisine, inspired by cultures from around the world.
    As co-owner of the popular Seattle restaurants, Joule, Trove, and Revel, and Portland's Revelry, chef Rachel Yang delights with her unique Korean fusion—think noodles, dumplings, pickles, pancakes, and barbecue. Along with her husband, Seif Chirchi, Yang serves food that exemplifies cross-cultural cooking at its most gratifying. In the cookbook you’ll find the restaurants’ kimchi recipe, of course, but there’s so much more—seaweed noodles with crab and crème fraîche, tahini-garlic grilled pork belly, fried cauliflower with miso bagna cauda, chipotle-spiked pad thai, Korean-taco pickles, and the ultimate Korean fried chicken (served with peanut brittle shards for extra crunch). There are rice bowls too—with everything from lamb curry to charred shiitake mushrooms—but this book goes way beyond bibimbap.
    In many ways, the book, like Yang’s restaurants, is analogous to a rice bowl; underpinning everything is Yang’s strict childhood in Korea and the food memories it engrained in her. But on top you’ll taste a mosaic of flavors from across the globe, plus a dash of her culinary alma maters, Per Se and Alain Ducasse. This is the authentic, cutting-edge fusion food of a Korean immigrant who tried everything she could to become an American, but only became one when she realized that her culture—among many—is what makes America so delicious today.
