Ground beef is not traditional at all. So I used something closer which is ham. Koreans often use spam( can’t bring myself to eat it) or pork belly. So I sub ham cuz it’s easy. I also add gojuchang to spice more. Read More

Fried rice is such an easy classic throw together meal with whatever odds and ends you may have. Since we have it regularly I'm always looking for a different angle so it doesn't get boring. This recipe is great. I subbed a can of diced fried-til-crispy Spam. I will be making this again and again. Everyone loved it! Read More

Used tofu instead of beef and it came out awesome! Didn’t have sesame oil but I had Chinese chili oil since it has a sesame oil and sesame in it! Very proud how this turned out ?? Read More
