Sweet-and-Sour Korean Cocktail Meatballs
Old-school Swedish meatballs get a Korean twist, courtesy of gochujang, a spicy, subtly sweet fermented chili paste.
This Korean dish, which comes from Norm Matthews of Junction City, Kansas, features paper-thin slices of meat marinated in a salty-sweet sauce. It is served over rice or wrapped in lettuce leaves.
Kimchi Fried Rice
The spicy tang of kimchi (sometimes spelled kimchee) gives a delicious Korean twist to fried rice. Top each bowl with a sesame oil-fried egg to make it a complete meal.
Korean Beef Tacos
If you cook the beef chuck roast and pickle the cucumbers in advance, these delectable tacos come together in just 10 minutes.
Kimchi Pancake with Shrimp Recipe
Buchimgaru, or Korean pancake mix, is widely used when making dishes such as this kimchi-jeon. Our homemade version calls for a combination of all-purpose flour, rice flour, cornstarch, and baking powder, and keeps the pancakes crisp and flavorful without the added preservatives often found in packaged mixes.
Chicken and Pork Seekh Kebabs
Ingredients borrowed from Indian cuisine give far-flung flavors to these kebabs. Naan and a summer-fruit chutney cool the spicy dish.
Bulgogi is a classic Korean dish that calls for grilling thin, marinated slices of beef. It's often stir-fried in a skillet when made at home. Serve with lettuce, rice, kimchi, thinly sliced scallions and jalapeno or serrano chiles, and ssamjang (Korean seasoned soybean paste), and let your guests assemble their own wraps.
