ChoonChun Style Dak Galbi

Ingredients and Method:

  1. There’s cabbage, green onions, and hot peppers along with chicken thigh meat and spicy sauce. Yes, the sauce is spicy! Koreans LOVE spicy food.. which is kind of interesting because most other Asians don’t use a lot of spices in their food. Although some cultures do enjoy spices but a different kind of spicy. A lot of Korean foods are red. And that’s because they use Gochujang or Gochugaru. I love it. And this Dak Galbi is a great example of what Koreans like to eat and how spicy they like their food.
  2. To make this dish; you will need about 6-8 chicken thighs. I strongly recommend chicken thigh meat over breast. Place the thigh meat in a bowl and pour milk to cover. Set it aside for 20 minutes. This gets rid of the unique chicken smell and makes the chicken taste better.
  3. Cut 1/2 green cabbage in small squares. Slice 1 red pepper and 8-10 Korean Ketnip leaves.
  4. Make the sauce by combining 1 heaping tablespoon gochujang, 4 tablespoons gochugaru, 6 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon oyster sauce, 4 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 4 tablespoons rice wine (sake), and freshly ground black pepper in a bowl and stir to mix.
  5. Drain milk from the chicken bowl and add 1 tablespoon rice wine, salt and pepper to the chicken and stir with hand. Grill the chicken on indoor grill until the outside of the chicken is brown.
  6. Transfer the chicken to round pan and turn on the heat to medium high. Add the prepared sauce to the pan and turn down the heat to medium.
  7. Continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce starts to thicken. Using kitchen scissors, cut the chicken into bite sizes.
  8. Add the cabbage, red pepper, and Ketnip leaves to the pan.
  9. Stir well with wooden spoon and continue to cook until the cabbage is softened, about 3-5 more minutes. Sprinkle with 2 green onions that are chopped and serve!
  10. And here is the best part of ChoonChun Style Dak Galbi! Add rice to the pan and stir! This is what they do at restaurants in Korea. They bring out bowls of white rice and put it on the grill and mix it with the leftover chicken, veggies and the sauce! And it’s definitely my favorite thing about this dish!
