Budae-jjigae to the Next Level!!

Budae-jjigae is a typical Korean food you can find anywhere in Korea. But we are not satisfied with all the similar recipes and tastes, and we finally found this place that has taken Budae-jjigae to the next level – Jang Hyeokmin’s Budae-jjgae!

Korean Budae-jjigae (Army Stew) or sausage stew is a type of Korean stew developed by the locals during the Korean War. People used leftovers western sausages, ham, spam, baked beans from the U.S military bases at the time and cooked them together with Korean kimchi. And that’s also where the name “Budae-jjigae (Army Stew)” came from.

Although Budae-jjigae is originated from the hard times when there was so little resources that people had to take whatever could be found for a living, it has now become a unique Korean cuisine with American ingredients loved by both Koreans and foreign visitors!!

What makes Jang Hyeokmin’s Budae-jjgae different is their further developed recipe and new way to enjoy this Korean-American fusion dish. Adding whole large slice of beef sirloin and bacons to the Budae-jjgae gives it a more diverse taste, and I also love the cheese slice which makes the jjgae(broth) less spicy and more savory. Another secret to make it more delicious is to have it with butter mixed rice!

Desipte there are countless Budae-jjgae restaurants in Koreait is quite rare to see it with beef sirlion or bacon, but we’re giving a 10 out of 10 for this combination!
