I make your Japchae and kimchi and am sure this stew will be another favorite. I don’t have good enough internet to watch your videos unless I can get to a town, but love to watch and learn when the opportunity arises. So, the printed recipes, directions and links are so appreciated!

If you can’t clean the anchovies, I recommend getting anchovy powder in small package. And yes, remove the cooked anchovies from the stew before serving. Not many people will be interested in seeing floating anchovies in the stew. Some people eat the cooked anchovies though.

Quite frankly the thought of taking guts out of the little fish is a bit gross! Obviously I didn’t grow up with them! Do we remove the anchovies before serving? I don’t mean to insult. I’m sure they are the base for a great flavor, but like I said, they will be a hurdle for me!

I have to tell you that I so appreciate how you link the ingredients to an info page. I take my cell phone to the Korean market and find the “right” ingredients by matching up your pictures to what is on the shelf!

You are taking one failed dish pretty hard, my friend! This dish is complicated and there are so many variables. The anchovies and kelp, were they quite fresh? They are the backbone of this stew, and if they have lost their zest, the stew will be bland and one-dimensional. The red pepper flakes are the star of this show. They have to be the Korean kind, or this just won’t taste good at all. Please don’t give up!

Just thought I would post so if anybody else created a disaster they wouldn’t feel like they were the only one.

I used Dashi anchovy dried…I highly doubt that was why it tasted like crap…sigh

If kelp is not available, skip it and use dried anchovies to make stock. Or use some chicken broth (canned or homemade chicken broth)

Is it a must to add kelp in the stock?
