Hi, just wondering if anyone know the recipe to make this at home? They're delicious and I've been trying to recreate the same flavor but no luck. Why not just buy these, you ask? Because they're quite expensive, even at the local stores, $16 for a 6 pack, $25 online, but most importantly its too spicy, I'm hoping if I can make these myself, I'd just tone down the spiciness a little.


I can get most of the ingredient such as hot pepper paste, red pepper flakes powder, udon noodles and other stuff. I just don't know how to recreate the flavor like the premade sauce pack. Any help would be greatly appreciated.z

Serving size: 2-3

  • 18 ounces fresh jajangmyeon noodle (or kalguksu noodle)
  • 6 ounces lean pork (loin or tenderloin), cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1.5 onions, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/2 zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup black bean paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

    Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender. Stir occasionally and then drain. Put the noodles in a serving bowl (you will want to time this out so that the noodles finish cooking at about the same time as the sauce).

    Heat wok (or skillet) over high heat until a drop of water evaporates within a few seconds of contact, then add olive oil and pork. Cook until the pork is fully cooked and then add black bean paste, onion, and zucchini and continue to stir-fry. When the vegetables are all cooked, add water and sugar, and boil over high heat. When the black bean sauce boils, add cornstarch and quickly mix in. Remove from the heat. Serve noodles and sauce in separate bowls or together.

오이김치 - Cucumber kimchi

뒈지고기 볶음 - stir fried pork belly

계란말이 - folded omelette

데친 브로콜리 - sesame and garlic broccoli

버섯 나물 - stir fried mushrooms.

I used other recipes than the ones I linked. Mainly from Korean Home cooking and Our Korean kitchen

However, I thought it best to link recipes that are similar to the ones I made. :)

I hope you all enjoy!

I don't know if it's necessarily for a "beginner", but I really love Maangchi.

Here's a link to her cookbook that I have:

Maangchi Cookbook

The thing that I love about her is that she also has a youtube channel where she uploads videos on how to make different things.

Here's her youtube channel:

I bought these yakgwa from Amazon and love them! I got a bag of the little ones off eBay and they were pretty hard (likely just old). The ones I linked were nice and soft😋

Rice cooker? Zojirushi are the best. My Japanese mother-in-law just cooks it on the stove, though. All you really need is a pot with a tight fitting lid so it keeps the steam inside.

I don't brine my pork belly.

Kimchi is definitely cheaper to make yourself (in bulk), but I frequently buy prepared. The stuff you can buy at Korean restaurants is typically way better than mass market jarred kimchi.

Why not a portable butane stove burner? Top it with a Korean BBQ rack for tabletop grilling excellence.

You don't need a fancy rice cooker to make nice rice. For years I used a random wolfgang puck 2 cup cooker that is now discontinued, then moved to something like this.

However, you can cook it on the stove, too. I think the most important steps are to account for rinsing, setting, and water amounts. I use the knuckle method seen here, because that's how my mom taught me to do it.

I know how you feel. The difficulty of finding correct ingredients is both challenging and frustrating. Coarse ground is the proper one for Baechu Kimchi for sure. But then having such 'specialized one' can be a luxury for remote areas. (I had the pleasure of cooking Korean food with limited items before and even made Kimchi with fine grind before - didn't die. Taste is not perfect of course.)

If you have access to Amazon delivery and budget allows, try getting both:

Coarse one example:

p.s. I use fine grind for almost everything except for big baechu kimchi. (Thus, 90% of my consumption is fine grind - soups etc).

I've actually looked around a lot and I found only one brand of gochujang at the hankook market nearest me that had no corn syrup or added sugar, it's from chung jung won:


It's expensive if you buy it online, at the store it was a little less than half the price. I bought a jar on Saturday. I'll let you guys know how it tastes when I get the chance to try it!

I reallllly enjoy Nong Shim veggie ramyun. It’s labeled as mild level spicy.

Everything is from the H-Mart housewares section. The stove is kinda like this and the grill is at Hmart too. There are similar pieces on amazon.

The Korean Table by Chung & Samuels is good. It tries to avoid hard-to-find ingredients wherever possible, and the specialty ingredients it does use are generally non-perishable spices, oils, etc. that are readily available online.

I imagine you're talking about the granulated hon dashi? This is the Korean counterpart. There are lots of other options though!

u/jackjackj8ck · 2 pointsr/KoreanFood

Amazon sells gochugaru for $10

It’s a totally different flavor profile than regular chili flakes, so unfortunately it won’t taste the same without it

You can use this to make all kinds of Korean dishes though beyond kimchi

Same! I was considering making my own, but I haven't seen short grain rice either. I was just going to cave and buy some short grain rice on amazon and grind it myself in my mortar and pestle lol.... but this one is the right one, and so far the only one that has come up for me on amazon.... So it's still really difficult to find. At least the sweet one is less difficult to find.
