Reinventing the Wheel…errr…The Ramen 19/12/2010

My dinner tonight was somewhat Korean- inspired. I cooked up a packet of Ramen (yeah yeah, I know, its technically Japanese because I prefer Maruchan) but I threw away the chicken seasoning pack and added a TON of red pepper flakes, and some garlic. I added some teriyaki-marinated steak on top and mixed in some peas. Pretty tasty and hot as HELL, lol. I think this is why Korean food is attractive to me- I love love love spicy and hot food. I eat red pepper flakes on pretty much everything; same with tabasco sauce.

Anyway, I took a pic of my delicious spin on Ramen noodles

My Spicy Beef and Noodles

Yum Yum πŸ™‚ I have leftover steak and a never-ending supply of Ramen so I think I will probably have this again for lunch tomorrow and then for dinner, I will have my Dwaeji Bulgogi with either noodles or rice and maybe some Kimchi if I can get my hands on it πŸ™‚ Pics to come!

I also made a new page called “Shannon Cooks Korean Too” where I will post all of my culinary adventures so make sure you check that out!

Korean Food :)

Well, kinda. I had Ramen noodles for lunch (yes, I know, they are more of a crappy Japanese food than Korean but it was delicious nonetheless πŸ˜› ) and I marinated some chicken in chili paste and red pepper flakes, mixed it with peas, and poured it on top of the Ramen. Very tasty πŸ™‚

We have some pork loin in the freezer so I think I am going to make λΌμ§€λΆˆκ³ κΈ° (Pork Bulgogi) for dinner tomorrow. Found a good recipe online and its something that even my non-Korean-food-loving family will enjoy. I mean, its just spicy pork with a side of veggies (and maybe some plain ramen noodles as well).

Speaking of (authentic) Korean food, there are actually a lot of restaurants that are within 20 minutes from my town and I have yet to try any of them out 😦 One of them is connected to a Korean grocery store, so I will definitely have to check that out, as no regular grocery stores in my area carry kimchi. All of the Korean restaurants around here have received glowing reviews so I’m super excited to give them my patronage. I’ll have to wait until my “adventurous-eater” friends are in town, lol.

I will post pics of my λΌμ§€λΆˆκ³ κΈ° tomorrow night, for the one or two people who might be reading this blog πŸ˜›
