it’s been a while since we cooked something, i know. but like i mentioned in the last post – exams and writing final reports were pretty exhausting.
so today, Korean cuisine again. really easy to make and delicious Korean chicken stew, dak bokkeumtang which literally means ‘fried chicken hot pot’. But what’s funny, we don’t fry the chicken while making that dish. ^^
400g chicken leg meat (without bones)
300g chicken leg halves
4-5 chicken stomachs
6 small potatoes
chilli peppers (optional)
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of Gochujang paste (Korean red hot pepper paste, you can probably buy it in every shop with Asian food)
3 tablespoons of chilli powder
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of mirin (you can use rice wine as a substitute)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Add salt, pepper, sugar according to your taste.
HOW TO MAKE?
1. Cut the meat, rather big pieces. Prepare a pot or a deep frying pan and fill it with cold water (about half a pot). Add the meat into the water and boil on the low heat until it’s cooked.
2. While the meat is cooking, cut the vegetables. Also rather big pieces. Potatoes pieces should be big, tensai said it’s much more delicious this way ^^
3. When the meat is cooked, add the vegetables and sauce. Add chopped garlic and chilli peppers (optional, if you like to have it very spicy). Cook until the potatoes are soft.
4. The soup should simmer all the time, this way the taste will be stronger, potatoes more soft and the soup’s taste will soak into the meat making it amazingly soft and tasty ;)
5. When it’s ready, put some stew in a bowl (as much as you’re gonna eat). Cook some rice before, when eaten with rice it tastes even better.
Easy, right? Enjoy! ^^
