Samngyetang

Samgyetang is a chicken soup made with a small, whole chicken and ginseng. It is an iconic summer dish in Korea. People eat this boiling hot soup to beat the heat and stay energized during the summer. It is especially popular during sambok, the three hottest days of summer; these days are based on the lunar calendar — chobok (beginning), jungbok (middle) and malbok (end). As the Korean saying goes, eating the hot soup is “fighting the heat with heat.”

How to make Bibimbap

Bibimbap

Bibimbap is a large bowl of rice topped with a colorful array of individually prepared vegetables and beef, and served with a gochujang (Korean red chili pepper paste) sauce. Bibim means mixing, and bap means rice. The mixing typically happens at the table right before eating. Sometimes, bibimbap is served in a sizzling hot stone bowl (dolsot), which gives the bottom layer of rice a nice golden crust. This bibimbap recipe looks long, but it is actually a collection of several easy-to-make side dishes (banchan) using common vegetables such as spinach, cucumbers, zucchini, carrots, bean sprouts, etc. This recipe uses 7 toppings, but any 3 or 4 of these will make a delightful bibimbap dish. Simply omit the beef for a vegetarian dish.
