I have not tried this one, but the author is trustworthy and Korean. I imagine you have to use a very tender cut of meat (top round, maybe, or something even more expensive) to do it this way, or else add a teaspoon of tenderizer to the mix: ................................................................. Hello, my name is Chi Won, I am Rick's wife at Lightning Strikes. Rick suggested that I get involved with some of the LinkUSA conferences.... I have decided to give you my recipe for Bulgogi.... A Korean dish made with strips of beef and cooked in a soy sauce and other ingredients. So here it is: .................................................................. 3 pounds of roast beef sliced.... 1/2 cup of soy sauce 1 tablespoon of sesame oil 1 tablespoon of sesame seed 1 tablespoon of garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, brown sugar, or honey (either one of the three) 5 green onions sliced (stems and all) First slice the Roast Beef (in raw form) 1/8th of an inch thick. Once sliced then cut into little bite size chunks... Next place all the ingredients above in a large bowl and mix with large utensil until sugar is disolved. Add a 1/2 a cup of water to your mix, stir and let set for at least 3 hours or overnight.... This will give the meat a chance to soak in the juices. Last but not least, place your batch of Bulgogi in a pot and cook it at a medium temperature. Do not use any kind of oil in your pot. The ingredients you mixed above will do just fine.... If you would like your mix a little sweeter, add a little more sugar... If you prefer a saltier taste add some more soy sauce.... Eat up and enjoy, let me know if you liked it.... If you do, I will throw some more of my country dishes up for review.... *** Chi Won *** Origin: Chi Won Blough From: MICHAEL LOO -End Recipe Export-

As some of you may have noticed some people spell Korean Barbecue Beef Bulgogi and some Pulgogi. Both spellings are both right and wrong. I live in Pusan but it's sometimes seen on maps and spelled as Busan. The reason is Hangul- the Korean language- does not have a hard p sound or a b sound but something in the middle. They also do not have a hard f sound(as in fat) so fat sounds like pphhat(sort of) anyway, to stay on topic here is a great recipe for chile pepper fans. STIR FRY BEEF WITH PEPPERS ========================== 1/2 lb beef tenderloin 1 tbsp rice wine 2 tsp soy sauce 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp sugar 1 tbs cornstarch 3 ounces korean green peppers 3 red peppers 3 cloves garlic 1 tbs oil 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp sugar Cut the beef into thin strips and season witht the rice wine, sugar, soy sauce, salt and cornstarch. let it stand for 10 minutes. cut the green peppers into thin strips and soak them in water to remove some of the heat. slice the garlic into flat pieces. stir fry the green pepper and red pepper strips lightly with the salt and sugar in an oiled pan. stir fry the garlic and seasoned beef in lightly oiled pan. add the peppers and stir fry again. Note: Any small hot green pepper can be used instead of Korean peppers. From: REBECCA KISSEL -End Recipe Export-

Pick over mung beans; wash and drain. Place rice and beans in a bowl and cover wtih 5 cups of water. Let soak for 10 hours. Remove skins from beans by rubbing between your hands. Drain off floating skins now and then, replacing water with fresh water, until most all of the skins are removed and drained away. Drain off remaining water and blend rice and beans in a food processor until it becomes a thick paste. With machine running, gradually add 3/4 cup water to mixture; blend in thoroughly. Blanch bean sprouts in boiling water for 2 minutes; drain. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible, then stir sprouts into the batter along with the scallions, green pepper, onion, baking soda, sesame oil, sesame seeds, soy sauce and salt. Mix well. Have all cooking paraphernalia ready and at hand. You will need to have near your skillet: 1/4 to 1/2 cup of vegetable oil in a cup or bowl with a small spoon, a larger spoon to spread the batter, the bowl of batter with a 1/3-cup measuring scoop/cup, a metal spatula for turning the pancakes, and a plate on which to place the finished dosas after they are cooked. Pour 1 teaspoon of oil into the skillet and tilt to distribute evenly. Heat the skillet over medium-low until oil is hot. Pour 1/3 cup of the mixture onto the center of the hot skillet. Use the large spoon to spread the batter in a spiral motion, until the pancake is about 6-7 inches in diameter. Turn pancake after 2-3 minutes and cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side. Remove pancake to plate and repeat with remaining batter, adding only enough additional oil to the skillet as needed to keep surface evenly greased. I found that about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon for each pancake was plenty, but your mileage may vary. DIPPING SAUCE: Mix together all ingredients and serve with hot Bindaetuk.

    -Begin Recipe Export- QBook version 1.00.14 Title: Mom's Kim Chee (made With Nappa Cabbage) Keywords: Condiment, Side Dish, Cabbage, Korean, Kim Chee MOM'S KIM CHEE (MADE WITH NAPPA CABBAGE) ======================================== Kim Chee is a pickled salad/condiment type food served at virtually every Korean meal. It is often compared to saurkraut. It can be made not only with nappa cabbage, but with types of raddishes, greens, or cucumbers. It is salty, (spicy) hot, temperately cold, garlicy and tangy. Here is a short cut version. My mom usually makes a bushel at a time. If you are new to kim chee, I doubt you would want to deal with that much on the first try. It is a short cut version for a second reason which has to do with how the pepper paste/sauce is added to the cabbage. In the long version, not given, the pepper mixture is layered between whole leaves of quarted cabbage pieces. In this version the mixture is tossed like a salad instead. The seasonings are the same. THERE ARE THREE MAJOR STEPS TO MAKING KIM CHEE: 1. Salting the cabbage 2. Making the pepper paste/sauce. 3. Combining the pepper with the cabbage and putting it into jars. YOU WILL NEED: 1/2-1 c pickling salt 1 ea Head Nappa Cabbage 1 ea daikon raddish (one third to one half the size of the cabbage) 1 ea head of garlic, minced 1-2 Tb ginger, minced 2-8 Tb Korean red pepper flakes, or fresh hot red pepper to taste, or a combination. 2 ea green onions, julienned 1 tb sugar X A new pair of latex gloves are handy for handling hot pepper mixture. X A large bowl for soaking the cabbage in brine solution. X Large glass containers to put the finished kim chee into. X Especially handy for large batches is a food processor and/or a contraption for shredding vegetables into julienne strips. DIRECTIONS: First, the cabbage must be salted in brine solution. Cut the cabbage in half lengthwise. Then cut a second time lengthwise to form quarter cabbage chunks. Mix the salt with enough water to cover all the cabbage in a large bowl. Soak the cabbage in the brine solution, making sure that all parts are submerged. If they are not, you can restack the cabbage half way through the soaking process, moving bottom chunks to the top, and vice versa. Leave the cabbage for 2-4 hours. At the end of this time, the cabbage should be wilted, supple, limp and salty in taste. (optional: A trick from my grandmother is to lightly salt each stalk of each leaf which is much thicker than the leafy part in order that the leafy part and stalk are evenly seasoned. So to do this you must rub pickling salt sparsely on each of the stalks. This is done midway through the soaking when the leaves are manageable wilted. ) Reserve some of the brine solution. Rinse the cabbage and then cut into bite size pieces about an inch and a half long and drain the cabbage. Discard the centre core. In the mean time, prepare the daikon raddish and the pepper sauce/paste. The daikon must either be shredded into julienne strips. Add to the daikon: red pepper flakes, red pepper, minced garlic, minced ginger, julienned green onion, salt to taste (1 Tbsp) and sugar, then toss. If you are using your hands, beware of the the hot pepper. This is where gloves come in handy. Finally, thoroughly mix the pepper mixture with the cabbage by tossing. Then check for salt and red pepper and seasoning in general and adjust if necessary. Then pack into glass jars. The mixture should have a liquid sauce in the jar and more will form as it sits. It is important that the mixture is in a sauce. Should you need to add more liquid, take some reserved brine and rinse the final mixing bowl and add to bottles so that all the cabbage pieces are just submerged in liquid. You can keep a bottle outside for a day to help it ripen more quickly, otherwise store in the refrigerator, tightly capped. The taste changes as it ripens. It is initially like a salad and then ferments to taste more sour. Kim chee compliments meals served with rice. It is a Korean staple. It is also good fried with butter or sesame oil, or stir fried with pork and tofu. From: jkwak@inforamp.net (June Kwak) -End Recipe Export-

Seaweed, which is now domesticated, that is to say raised on farms jutting out into the sea, supplements food that is raised on land. Containing iodine and a host of other minerals and with a flavor reminiscent of an ocean breeze, the fried kelp (Laminaria japonica) with a light sprinkling of sugar is an example of the culinary ingenuity of the Koreans. 1. Wipe each piece of the dried kelp with a damp (not soaking) cloth. 2. Heat the oil in a skillet over moderate heat. One at a time, put a very lightly dampened piece of kelp in the hot oil, holding it with chopsticks, until the color changes to dark green. Bubbles may appear on the kelp surface and it will develop a crispness. 3. While the kelp is still hot sprinkle on a few grains of sugar. The sugar will cling to the kelp when it is still hot and just removed from the oil. It will not do so when cold. Eat as a side dish or snack food with tea or a drink. Serves 4 to 6.
