Here is a simple and easy recipe that is close to my heart. My boyfriend, Jer, and I enjoy cooking together. He is great at portioning the ingredients, while I’m horrible at estimating them. To redeem myself, I’m the one who’s in charge of the flavor and final touches of the dish. 😁 Who would have thought, right? If you’ve been reading this blog since 2009, you are probably aware that I used to be so horrible at cooking that even following a recipe ends up as a disaster. 😂
I tried making Budae Jigae again today and I can say I’ve perfected it now! Hooray! For those of you who aren’t familiar, Budae Jigae is a Korean army stew. Korean soldiers used to eat this during the war since this is very cheap to make. Until now, this is still being eaten and being served in restaurants because it tastes so good. You can use this recipe as a guide, but feel free to adjust the amount as you see fit. That’s what cooking is all about, right?
