Korean Recipes


Korean food is based around rice and noodles,with meat, tofu and vegetables. Spices and seasonings are used extensively, including some uniquely Korean flavors - these include doenjang (fermented soybean paste), garlic, ginger, gochujang (red chilli paste), salt and soy sauce. It is also traditional to serve meals with many different side dishes (Korean: banchan).

Some popular Korean dishes include:
  • Bulgogi - In Korean, bulgogi means "fire meat". Beef is thinly sliced or shredded and cooked over a grill. Other meats may be substituted, including pork ("dweji bulgogi"), chicken ("dak bulgogi"), or squid ("ojingeo bulgogi").

  • Dakgalbi - Seasoned chicken cooked over a charcoal grill.

  • Gamjatang - Spicy pork spine soup. As well as pork spine, vegetables, including potatoes and green onions, as well as hot peppers and sesame seeds, are used.

  • Gujeolpan - This dish was traditionally eaten by Korean nobility and royalty. In the Korean language, the name means means "dish of nine dishes", reflecting the fact that it is consists of eight separate small dishes, and pancakes. It is served on a special octagonal plate with eight side containers (used for the small dishes), and a center container (used for the pancakes).

  • Hoe - Thinly sliced raw fish, somewhat similar to Japanese cuisine's sashimi, dipped in either chogochujang which is a sauce made from gochujang (red chilli paste), or wasabi sauce, then wrapped in green leaves, and served on a bed of cellophane noodles ("dangmyeon").

  • Japchae - Boiled potato noodles with beef, carrots, onions and spinach.

  • Jeongol - A stew made using seafood and vegetables.

  • Jokbal - Pig's trotters cooked in soy sauce and spices, deboned, and served with a shrimp sauce.

  • Kalbi (or Galbi) - Pork or beef ribs cooked on a charcoal grill.

  • Kalguksu - Boiled flat noodles, usually in a broth containing anchovies and zucchini (courgettes).

  • Kimchi jjigae - A soup made using kimchi, pork and tofu.

  • Kongnamul-bap - Soybean sprouts served over rice.

  • Kongnamul-guk - A soup made from soybean sprouts.

  • Makchang - The Korean version of chitterlings - grilled pork intestines.

  • Maeuntang - Hot and spicy fish soup.

  • Ramyeon - Spicy noodles with meat and vegetables, somewhat similar to Japanese cuisine's ramen noodles.

  • Samgyeopsal - Pork belly meat (similar to bacon), flavored and seasoned with garlic, sesame oil and salt. The meat is cooked on an open grill and then placed inside lettuce or a similar leafy vegetable, along cooked rice and ssamjang (a spicy paste), before eating. Green chillies, slices of raw garlic dipped in ssamjang and spring onion salad, are common accompaniments, and these help absorb the grease from the meat.

  • Sannakji - A small live octopus, cut in pieces and lightly seasoned. The octopus pieces are usually still moving when the dish is served.

  • Tteok - A chewy cake made from either pounded short-grained rice, pounded glutinous rice, or glutinous rice left whole without pounding. It may be served hot or cold, and as a dessert or snack. It is also sometimes served with beef, mushrooms, onions, etc., as a light meal.

  • Yukhoe - A raw beef dish somewhat similar to steak tartare. The raw beef is shredded and topped with a raw egg yolk, then seasoned with asian (nashi) pear, black pepper, garlic, gochujang (red chilli paste), green onions, sesame seed, sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar.

Product Description:
Ewha Womans University Press is pleased to publish a revised and expanded deluxe hardcover edition of A Korean Mother's Cooking Notes. Its first edition has long been one of the best and most representative of all Korean cookbooks, and has continually been enjoyed by all the generations of Koreans since its original publication in 1997. This new edition selectively chooses 126 authentic Korean recipes and introduces them with step-by-step instructions along with full-color pictures.

This completely revised edition is organized into nine basic categories: rice and porridge, soup and stew, seasoned vegetable dishes, food cooked in sauces, broiled food, kimchi, pickled food, popular dishes and desserts. The book also contains two types of recipes: authentic recipes such as kimchi or vegetables mixed with rice (bibim bap) for the traditionalists, and quick and easy recipes such as rice with trumpet royal mushrooms (saesong-i beoseot bap) for those who are in a hurry yet still want a home-cooked meal. There are also detailed explanations of special holidays and occasions, like Korean Thanksgiving Day and birthdays, along with suggested menus for the settings. Finally, the revised edition also contains a simple and organized explanation of the commonly used ingredients.

Chang Sun-young always explains her recipes step by step as if she is standing next to you, and always gives the specific measures of the ingredients in cups and spoons so that no matter who makes the dish, it will result in the same taste as the dish that she herself makes. Even novice cooks can prepare authentic Korean food, which has five thousand years of tradition, and have it taste just like mom used to make.

She is not originally trained as a professional chef; rather, she is a housewife who loves her family very much. This book originated as a collection of notes and recipes to help her two daughters-in-law who lived away from her. She shares her years of experience and wisdom, ranging from how to clean the ingredients to how to preserve the foods to how to efficiently prepare the foods.

A Korean Mother's Cooking Notes provides invaluable guidance to Korean home cooking and includes the secrets and wisdom from 40 years of experience of a devoted Korean housewife. This deluxe edition is a labor of love from the entire family. The older daughter-in-law helped with the preparation and presentation of the dishes for the pictures, and the younger daughter-in-law translated the book.

Even in the United States, this book is consistently requested among 2nd and 3rd generation Korean Americans. We hope that this book will be a guide to the Korean culinary arts for those who are genuinely interested in Korean culture and cooking. This new deluxe edition, completely revised and updated, and now in hardcover, will be a treasured gift and constant resource for everyone who loves Korean cooking.

The definitive book on Korean cuisine by “YouTube's Korean Julia Child”* and the author of Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking
*New York Times


Despite the huge popularity of Korean restaurants, there has been no comprehensive book on Korean cooking—until now. Maangchi’s Big Book of Korean Cooking is a wide, deep journey to the heart of a food-obsessed culture.

The book contains the favorite dishes Maangchi has perfected over the years, from Korean barbecue and fried chicken to bulgogi and bibimbap. It explores topics not covered in other Korean cookbooks, from the vegan fare of Buddhist mountain temples to the inventive snacks of street vendors to the healthful, beautiful lunch boxes Korean mothers make for their kids. Maangchi has updated and improved the traditional dishes, without losing their authentic spirit.
Among the features:
• Spectacular party food, from homemade clear rice liquor to sweet, spicy, sour baby back ribs
• Side plates that support and complement every Korean meal
• Soups, hotpots, and stews, from bone broth to tofu stews
• An array of different kimchis
• A detailed photographic chapter on Korean cooking techniques

Hundreds of striking, full-color photos by Maangchi show Korean ingredients so the cook knows exactly what to buy, step-by-step techniques for each recipe, and tempting close-ups of every dish.
