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. So...here'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 www.teachenglishinasia.net.
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
