- 2.5-3lbs of beef (I used chuck roast)
- 2 serrano chiles (or more, that's all I had in my fridge)
- 2 jalapenos
- 10-15 cloves of garlic
- dae pa (large green onion/leek)
- small white onion
- dried Korean red pepper
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 8 cups water, 1 cup soy sauce, 4 TB rice wine, 3 TB sugar, 1 TB honey powder, and 1 TB corn syrup
Begin by preparing your meat. Remove it from the plastic and use a large knife to cut it up into 3-inch chunks.
Let it sit in cold water for about 15 minutes to drain it of it's blood.
Meanwhile, wash and prep all your vegetables.
Hard boil some eggs for about 15 minutes, then remove from heat, peel them and set aside.
After the meat has been drained for a while, add enough water to cover and boil it for about 10 minutes until the gunk rises to the top.
And then........wash and clean both the meat and the pot.
In the pot add 8 cups water, 1 cup soy sauce, 4 TB rice wine, 3 TB sugar, 1 TB honey powder, and 1 TB corn syrup and turn up the heat. Note: If you don't have honey powder you can just add 1 more TB of sugar. I just LOVE the sweetness of honey powder so I tend to add it to everything.
Finally add your meat, and all the vegetables except the garlic cloves.
Let everything boil together for about 50 minutes and then remove all the vegetables that you used until this point and discard.
Add your eggs first and let it boil for about 20 minutes.
Then finally add your garlic cloves and some more sliced jalapenos and let it boil for about 15 minutes.
You're almost done! Let it sit until it cools down.
The beef should be really tender and very easy to shred using your hands.
Pour the leftover sauce into the meat through a strainer...
Slice the eggs and you can store them separately or together. I just stored this one together since I will be taking it into the office today.
This was Munchkin's breakfast this morning. He doesn't like egg yolk. =)
Tada! All ready to serve. Enjoy!
PS. For those of you who are non-Korean and have never seen this dish before. This is a side dish. Enjoy it with rice because it is quite salty and would most definitely give you a sodium overload if you eat it just by itself. =P
