Hello fellow Korean cuisine lovers. It looks like I've found a happy place to indulge in finding great recipes to enjoy while I'm in the states. As a writer and international journalist, I was lucky enough to visit Korea 5 times in the past year. After discovering my body loves the taste of Korea foods and behaves SO much better having it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I am trying to integrate into my western schedule.
Easier said than done. In Seoul, Korea, wonderful restaurants and tiny eateries exist everywhere. The prices are so reasonable and everything delivers. Hardly anyone I know there cooks at home. Now that I'm home, that convenience is not possible which leaves no other option than to cook it myself.
So, here's my plea...HELP!!! I need suggestions for authentic recipes or creative adaptations that:
1) I can make with meats, vegetables, and fruits available in California grocery stores. I'm not as ambitious as David Norman to grow my own ;) I do have an Asian Market a bit of a drive away for my pastes and things.
2) Are not too time consuming. I don't have a lot of time to cook. (to be more honest, patience is what I'm lacking these days)
Currently I have four dishes: Gamjatang, Sweet Potato Rice, Omurice, and Kimchi Quesadilla.
I appreciate your suggestions!
