This is the meal my kids request most when we get together. I've developed this version based on curry in Japan, and my memories of curries my Mom made. It is a real comfort food, and warms the tum, best in cool weather, but my family loves it any time. It makes a big pot -the serving number is an estimate. It's basically a thickened spicy stew, so easily varied according to your tastes. We love it with lots of potatoes and carrots. Enjoy!
Obviously, this recipe can be made lighter by varying the thickening agent, but I personally don't wish to mess with it. Let me know if you have luck with it.Submitted by TADPOLE17
This is something that was a hit with my hubby and 3 year old. I took some stuff we had and put it together (I was craving cabbage) I also used low-sodium cream of mushroom soup when I made it, but for the recipe, put down regular (as I think it would help with flavoring)
You may want more or less salt and pepper for taste.Submitted by JOYPHOTOG
Slow cook on the stove stop. Uses all fresh ingredients. Adding this mostly due to it being a family favorite and not many others call for making homemade verde sauce. I also adjust the heat by leaving the seeds and ribs of one half of one jalapeno. Can also add 2 anaheim or poblano chiles for more heat. Submitted by TGIRL09
Here is a favourite recipe of mine, it's packed with nutrients, and really easy to make with whatever veggies or meat you have on hand, or you can leave the meat out for vegetarian fare....
I actually used a cut called "Sandwich Steak" at my grocery store, I couldn't find it on here though, so I put in the flank steak cut.
The bibimbab sauce is actually a red pepper paste mixed with sesame oil, that can be found in most Asian markets (or if you have a really great International Section in your supermarket). If you find just the paste, then add a bit of oil at a time til you get a taste you like :)
I used my steamer for my rice and chopped veggies while the meat cooked, great multi-tasking lol...
The key ingredient for the proper flavour is the sesame oil! I tried to sub different oils, but it just doesn't taste very good, unless it's sesame.
I think the egg is the icing on this recipe, it makes it very authentic! (I lived in South Korea for a year, and ate this every other day!)
This is very filling, if I eat a serving for lunch, it really takes me past that 3:00 Snack Monster, I think because of the protein in it :)Submitted by IMLUZINGIT
