    Newer Older

    Korean army stew or budae jjigae, the god father of Korean fusion food! :) Recipe on my blog . For those who are unfamiliar with this, Korean army base stew originated during/ after the Korean war when meat was very scarce in Korea so the creative ppl living at Ujeongbu which is where the US army base was located made use of leftovers from the US soldiers and of course it included sausages/ frankfurters...spam is also popular.
