Great recipe. I have to say, the quality of the Gochujang matters. I used one brand the first time I made this, and it was very grainy flavored, and I switched brands and much different, much more tasty! Wonderful recipes!

By: Henri Thu, 11 Sep 2014 02:11:42 +0000 Thank you so much for this great recipe. I’m so lucky to have found you here. I used tiny dried shrimps and they taste even better because it’s less chewy and much cheaper too. The only bad thing about it is that I finish them even faster…..Thank you Manngchi!

We love myeolchi-bokkeum!

Here’s another request for a recipe for gochu jangaji!
I’ve got shishito peppers (for your kkwarigochujjim) and put-gochu – I suppose the latter are right for jangachi?

Btw: I don’t use olive-oil for Korean dishes; here, the easy-to-get-one is not neutral. Neutral oils in Germany are e. g. cheap sunflower-seed-oil and oil made from oilseed rape.
When it comes to non-neutral, I use Korean sesame-seed-oil as seasoning! Love it! :-D

Ciao, Sanne.

You are more and more getting into Korean cooking as time passes! Now it sounds like you make all side dishes very easily and fast! Congratulations!

All I can say about 멸치볶음 is that it is super easy and quick to make, mouthwateringly delicious and very addictive! I don’t know how it could last 2 weeks in my refrigerator because it is sooooo good!


By: Maangchi Thu, 06 Feb 2014 13:35:14 +0000 What’s gaeri? The tiny dried anchovies are called janmyeolchi (잔멸치) or jiri myeolchi (지리멸치) in Korean.

By: Cutemom Wed, 05 Feb 2014 18:14:51 +0000 Maangchi ssi,

Do you recommend using gaeri or jiri for this recipe? I usually use jiri. What’s gaeri for?
