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.

I've seen those fish cakes being sold in Korean supermarkets before but I don't dare to buy them coz I'm not sure if they are fresh. Which Asian supermarket make them fresh?

Hey C!
Thanks! You come over and I'll make a big plate for you! :)

Hi san.y,
This is not a kimchi crowd, and H. eyes will row if I have kimchi in my house. ;)

Hi Tigerfish,
I went to the H-Mart where there's a high population of Koreans, and the korean lady that was standing there by the live fish told me they made it that morning. It's not as shiok or salty as the Singapore fishcakes though. :)
