Daktdoritang 닭도리탕 This is a repost for Yossi

This is a repost for my new friend Yossi who I met at a cooking class. He was a really nice guy and totally into food.'s the recipe for you.


Daktdoritang 닭도리탕 was the old name for this dish, but there has been a backlash against the name because it has Japanese origins. These days there is a movement to call it Dak-bokkeum 닭볶음. Regardless of the name, it is delicious and one of my favorite dishes to cook and to eat. Here is a recipe I found from


Korean dakdoritang is more or less like a chicken stew... it is extremely easy to make and will amaze your tastebuds!

In a heavy pot mix together:

2 tbsp of minced garlic

2 tbsp kochujang (hot pepper paste)

2 tbsp kochukaru (red pepper flakes)

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp sugar

2 tsp oil

1 tbsp fresh ginger

2 cups water
