Korean cooking forum topics:
Hi Maangchi – I was reading about this and it sounds very curious (it includes tinned spam among other things). If it is something you have made I think it would be an interesting addition to the recipes and I would try it (even though I wouldn’t normally eat meat in a can!)
There is a lot of history this dish spam and hot dogs were introduced to Korea during and after the Korean War. Korean cooks learned how to use the American ingredients in a Korean jjige. For a long time this was considered poor people food but is now becoming popular as just plain good food. Be sure to try it with a few friends and a bottle of soju.
Some names for this dish are:
army base stew
Bu dae chigae
I love the dish and it is flexible in that you add what you want. Some versions call for cheese but I have not tried that that.
Thanks for the info powerplantop – I don’t think I would add cheese either but I will definitely give the stew a try at some point :)
