Galbi-jjim (갈비찜), Korean braised beef short ribs, are one of the most popular beef dishes to eat around Lunar new year in Korea. The meat falls apart off the bones and the tender vegetables have so much flavor from the sauce. No wonder everyone loves to eat galbi-jjim during the new year.
Korean cabbage kimchi is not always smothered in tons of Korean chili flakes and spices. Here is cabbage kimchi that doesn't have any chili flakes except a very little amount of chili as a garnish. We call it Bak-kimchi (백김치). "Bak" means white and so we can call it "white cabbage kimchi."
We love a fusion meal, and if it involves the culmination of two of our favorite cuisines, then all the better! Today's delicious recipe, brings together a classic Korean dish, bulgogi, with a popular Mexican classic, quesadillas!

There is Korean dish called "donggrang Ttang (동그랑땡)". They are like mini patties of minced meat with vegetables. The name came from the roundness of the patotoes. Donggrang means "round". "Ttang" doesn't have a specific meaning but it usually indicates something small and cute. Let's make Korean tofu tuna patties!
Apparently model, and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen passed out after cooking her Thanksgiving meal. So to make up for missing out the traditional feast, she prepared a Korean barbecue (indoor grills, muchim and all). The model took to social media to share her post thanksgiving meal on Snapchat.
Korean housewives are busy around this time of the year. It is a season of serious kimchi making. You can't skip kimchi, especially the cabbage kimchi, on any Korean meals and we need to make sure that we have plenty of kimchi available during the winter time when the cabbage is not available.
It's freezing outside and the best remedy for the chill is a drama and some spicy, piping hot soup for the soul. Add to that some delicious meaty pork and you have a bowl of goodness in your lap. Slurp away!
Halloween is in a couple of days and I would like to share one Halloween food idea with Korean food. This Black Sesame porridge is a wonderful way to serve nor only for breakfast but as a starter to fall festive meals.
