Saw a picture of friend’s Korean Army Stew in her facebook and we decided to give it a try 😀 It’s similar to our usual steamboat, very simple to prepare. Not sure how it’s compared to those served in restaurant, but boyfriend and I certainly love our version.
The dish originated during the Korean War, and was popular for a time afterwards, when people had little to eat. People made this dish by combining leftover Spam and hot dogs from U.S. Army facilities with whatever else was available. ~ wikipedia
Wahahaha…my apologies, my photos doesn’t really look appetizing. But it’s really yummy! Besides Spam, Hotdogs, I think wen can just place whatever we like in it? After some recipes researched, the few common ingredients includes Cabbage, Kimchi, Baked Beans, Mushrooms, etc. Hm…I’m not a fan of other mushrooms except golden mushrooms :p And my soup was very simple too – boiled the ikan bilis and water 😀
Wahaha…sorry for the ugly arrangements :p
Should have taken a pic of it fully cooked :p We also added a slice of cheese in.
- 1 pot of water
- 1 handful Ikan Bilis (anchovy)
- 3 tbsp gochujang (chilli soy paste)
- 1 can of baked beans
- ½ can of SPAM
- 1 pkt of golden mushroom
- 1 pkt of Pork Belly
- 3 sausages, sliced
- 1 pkt of Kimchi
- 1 pkt of Tofu
- 1 pkt Shin Ramen
- 1 pkt udon (because I love udon :p)
- cheese slice
- vegetables (couldn't find cabbage in NTUC that day)
- In a soup pot, bring the anchovy stock to a boil.
- Add the chili paste into the boiling stock and stir.
- Arrange the ingredients (except cheese, udon and ramen) nicely in the pot (wahaha...I tried to)
- Add the prepared soup base into the pot, simmer for about 10 minutes to cook all the ingredients.
- Add ramen and udon; simmer for another 3mins.
- Add cheese and it's ready to eat after it melts!
