We got this small 14cm-sized pot with lid which is excellent for making Korean noodles. It fits a regular Shin Ramyun perfectly, and the lid makes it easy to cook an egg in your noodles to your desired doneness.
But what makes this pot truly valuable is that it looks so nice that you don’t feel bad about eating straight out of it. I actually don’t mind eating out of a pot, but I have to admit that it is a little tacky. Maybe okay for a college student, but for people of a certain age, it’s just not good. 😂
We were recently given a bottle of this Kimchi by a Korean friend of ours, and she said it’s the best brand you can get here. Interestingly, another Korean friend recommended the same brand, so I’m really looking forward to trying it! We still have a lot of kimchi left in the jar we have opened, so it might be a while until we get to the new one, but it’s something to look forward to.
Today I made Budae-Jjigae (Army Base Stew) using this video as a guide. It was super-delicious, spicy, and will leave your whole body warmed up. It’s also very easy to make (hey, if I can do it, anyone can!)
In the photo below, you can see it with the spicy paste mixed into the broth (we just used water), and instant noodles added. We cook it on our kitchen stove, and then bring it over to the table and use a portable gas stove on low to keep it nice and hot. I highly recommend this yummy Korean dish!
Yes, American cheese in Shin Ramyun is so yummy! I drop an egg in the boiling water 3 minutes before it’s done, then two slices of American cheese. Mariko says Mozzarella is also very popular, so I need to try that too. 🍜💗🌶🔥
