Bulgogi (Korean Beef), is one of Korea's most famous dishes. It is a beef dish that is marinated in the Bulgogi sauce overnight before being fried in a pan and served with rice and side dishes. Delicious! It's quick and simple and the sauce can be used with so many other meats aswell.
An easy alternative to this dish is to use chicken legs or wings, using the bulgogi sauce marinate the chicken and roast in the oven, simple! This sauce is so versatile and you will see variations of this throughout Korean Cooking, You will also see many variations on the actual sauce throughout South Korea. Once mastered you can experiment and make your own authentic Korean recipes.
Jeyuk Bokkeum or Spicy pork is a Korean food recipe that contains sliced pork belly,and is coated with Gochujang, it's warm and spicy and is a great compliment to Bulgogi, in fact the Korean barbecue will often have both these dishes together. I add vegetables to make the dish more healthy.
Bibimbap is a delicious vegetable and rice dish flavoured with the famous gochujang, Simply fry some veg and add to a bowl of sushi rice and add the sauce, delicious. This is a famous and popular Korean Dish that is very healthy too.
Korean pancakes make a great lunchtime snack, or can go with a main dish. Made with flour and vegetables, and fried in a pan. Quick simple and delicious.
Kimbab is not unlike Japanese Sushi, However instead of using raw fish we use meats, vegetables and Kimchi as well. we call it Kimbap (Seaweed Rice), I have put together several different combinations. The look great, really healthy and are simple to make once you know how.
I find slow cooking beef is great for busy weekends, When you have little time for preparation. All you have to do is cut up some vegetables and chuck it in to a slow cooker with some meat, add some sauce and leave it to cook, Very easy to make.
Walking along the streets of Seoul you see stalls everywhere of people selling freshly cooked food. This is a very authentic Korean recipe. Ddukbokki is the most popular food sold, it is very spicy and would cost you about 50p in South Korea.
These spicy ribs are delightful cooked in a typically Korean way, nice and hot, the meat is succulent and the vegetables complete the dish. This dish gets the best from a slow cooker allowing the flavours to infuse.

Korean Fried Chicken is a great Korean styled recipe, growing in popularity the spicy dipping sauce is what makes this dish stand out. I have used just chicken legs with a homemade sauce and batter to make this delicious dish.
