Korean Beef Stew

Korean Beef Stew

Feeling Korean na naman ang kumare nyo!  I think epekto ito ng kakanood ng K-Drama… I think it’s a good thing, though, nalilibang na ko, may ulam pa kami..LELz! This Korean Beef Stew may look intimidating but it’s really very easy to cook. All you have to is just sauté and combine the ingredients together and it will result in such a great tasting dish that will make you eat more rice.


The first time I made this, I used beef sirloin but later on, I figured using beef brisket is much better because it’s a much flavorful cut of beef. You may opt not to use carrots too but it adds nutrients to this dish and of course, extender na rin.

What I love about this dish is that the ingredients are easily available and some are in my kitchen already. It’s really not a complicated dish and I’m sure your whole family will love it.
