Know any good Korean Recipes?

As some of you know, our family size grew unexpectedly by two teens for the rest of the school year when we got two foreign exchange students from Korea that are attending our oldest daughter's high school. Well, until tomorrow, it's three, but who's counting? Me, I'm just trying to find some good Korean recipes that I might have a hope of cooking. :)

In that vein, if you know one or a link to some, please share. :)

I'm knee deep in my next book for Brava. It's taking some fun and unexpected turns of its own, but that makes the writing interesting. Sometimes, my sense of humor takes me down paths that I had no intention of ever going and I can only hope it will make my editor smile rather than want to pull her hair out by the roots. LOL

My hubbys grandma has the best recipe for Korean chicken. I don't have it at the moment but I'll get it from her tomorrow and post it. Its so yummy!

I don't have any, but I could post a few links (not that you couldn't manage that on your own). I hope everything works out with your new adventure.

Kelley, Korean chicken sounds really good - is it spicy?

Judy F said...

I will be on the lookout for some. Maybe we have a book at the bookstore.

Sorry, I have no idea about Korean cooking, but I will check around and see if one of the gals on one of the threads I am on has any.

Looking forward to your new book, is that the one you did the research for in Vancouver recently ?

Korean Chicken
combine 12 chicken thighs
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 garlic cloves
3 stalks green onion
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
in pan and marinate for 30 minutes - two hours

add 1 chopped onion, 4 potatoes cubbed, and carrots. Cook on high unitl boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is done and potatoes and carrots are tender.

I've found that I sometimes have to add a little bit of water to the recipe so there is enough juice to cook it. When I do I try and add just a little more soy as well for flavor. Not too much or it will be too salty. This chicken is soo yummy!

Stacy, I'm not big on hot so I don't put the cayenne pepper in mine so it just depends on what you like.

Thanks for the links, Stacy...actually, you saved me lots of time. Because I tend to go off on tangents researching when I start looking for stuff on the Net. Smooches!

Cryna...yes, it is and it's making me laugh for sure. Just hope it does readers and my editor. ;-)

Kelley...sounds totally yummy...similar to a recipe for Vietnamese Chix I have from my m-i-l (who is from Vietnam). The recipes are just different enough though that you can see the different culinary background in them. :)

Oh, Judy...if you find a book to recommend, would you email me with it? I'd be in alt. :)

Hey Lucy I emailed my asst store manager and he is going to look for some books and let me know later this week.
