Another ” K-Drama made me cook this” moment! But this time, SPAM® Budae Jjigae naman. Suddenly had a craving for this. Thank fully, all the ingredients are pantry staples, especially SPAM.. Yesss, pati gochugaru, at gochujang dahil nga nahilig na mag-try ng Korean dishes and of course, ng favorite ng lahat: Samgyeopsal.
This dish is very easy to cook, all you need is to fry the SPAM. Combine the garlic, gochugaru, sugar, gochujang, soy sauce, and vinegar in a small bowl. Then you need to sauté the white parts of the leeks, add the chicken stock and gochujang mixture and simmer for 30 minutes before adding the instant noodles — without the seasonings ha.
When the noodles are cooked, add the fried SPAM, and cheese slices, cover for a minute then garnish with soft boiled egg and green leeks before serving.
