Today, I made Cheese Dakgalbi! Dakgalbi is a stir-fried dish with marinated chicken, vegetables (I used cabbage, green onion and perilla leaves) and other toppings on an iron pan. It originated from the Chuncheon region and is now enjoyed all over Korea. Give it a try, if you visit Korea! I added udon noodles, and it was great! XD You also can use jjolmyeon (chewy noodles), ramen, or dangmyeon (starch noodles). Make fried rice with the leftover sauce, and you’ll love it!
500g Boneless Chicken
Vegetables of Choice (put more than you think is enough)
1Tbsp Red Pepper Powder
2Tbsp Soy Sauce
1Tbsp Chopped Garlic
3Tbsp Gochujang (Red Pepper Paste)
2 Hot Peppers
1.5Tbsp Starch Syrup
1) Cut chicken and vegetables into bite-sized pieces.
2) Mix the gochujang (red paper paste), red pepper powder, sugar, starch syrup, soy sauce, chopped garlic, sesame oil and sesame seeds in a bowl. You can tweak the amount to taste. Add curry powder to bring it to another level.
3) Mix the marinade with the chicken and leave it in the fridge for 1~2 hours.
4) Coat the iron pan with sesame oil and fry marinated chicken and vegetables.
5) When the chicken is almost cooked, add udon noodles and keep frying.
6) Finish off with sprinkles of cheese! Done! You can sprinkle the cheese on top, or you can make it a dip like I did in the video.
To be honest, I wasn’t going to upload this video, but I was craving dakgalbi. So here it is. Enjoy!
