Korean Spiced Chicken :: Dak Galbi (닭갈비)

Sorry there was no recipe last week, folks! I was visiting Sweden with my sweetie O for midsummer — it was great seeing his friends and family, and getting to eat all that wonderful Swedish (and Korean!) food. Now I’m back and even more committed to cooking at home and trying to save some money in the process. ;) 

Before I left for vacay, I had some friends over for dak galbi, or Korean spiced chicken. I can’t even begin to tell you just how much I ADORE this dish — basically a mix of marinated chicken, assorted veggies and rice cake. The best part comes at the end when you mix in some rice and create that heavenly layer of crispy nooroongji (much like paella’s soccarat) that forms from the residual heat of the pan. Ahhh, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! 

Dak galbi joints are usually peppered around busy university areas, as it’s a popular and affordable student food. It’s also very convivial, as you eat ’round a large tabletop skillet, taking turns mixing everything up. Cold beer and even colder soju are often good friends of this dish. :) I love dak galbi so much that I finally decided to give it a go at home. And you know what? It was really easy and REALLY good!
