Steamed Egg – (계란찜) - Version 3.0

This California weather is sort of crazy, isn’t it?  EARTHQUAKE weather for sure.  =/  Growing up in Cali, I’m so used to earthquakes.  I’ve been through quite a few of the big ones so they hardly bother me anymore – but still the thought of the next big one is pretty scary.  =P

The rain has made it a lazy day today.  All of Munchkin’s sports activities this week have been cancelled due to rain.  This means the kid is going stir-crazy from 3PM until his bed time.  Stir crazy kid means a mom that has to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible. 

The following is a quick and easy way to make steamed egg all in one pot.  There are other ways to make egg jjim and I have VERSION 1 and VERSON 2 right here.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 CUP water
  • 2 TSP shrimp jut
  • handful of green onions

First crack two eggs into a small stone pot.

Pour a cup of water into it.

Add 2 TSP of shrimp jut LIQUID ONLY.

Whisk it all around thoroughly using a fork and place it on the stove on medium heat.

Once it looks like it’s just about to boil, turn down the heat to low…

…and add a tin foil tent on top with a tiny opening to let some air out.  Just let it simmer on low for about 10-15 minutes.

When it looks just about done, throw some green onions on top.

Let it continue to simmer for a couple of minutes and you’re ready to serve!  This type of egg jjim tastes best when served fresh.

Even just after just a few minutes, it starts to flatten out.

It still tastes great though!  This is the quickest and easiest way to enjoy egg jjim besides microwaving it.  Whenever I get around to it, I’ll post up the microwave version.  Enjoy and stay warm!

Munchkin’s dinner tonight also consisted of miyuk gook and clams.  =P  The kimchi jjigae was leftover from yesterday and was for ME.  =)

Spicy Chicken Gizzards – 매운 닭똥집 볶음

I started this recipe a couple weeks ago, but never had the time to finish up the post. I’ll attempt to finish it now from my memory.  =P

I’m reusing the pictures from my older post on Fried Chicken Gizzards because I completely forgot to take pictures during this stage.  Basically, cut your gizzards up wash in some flour/salt and then boil it for about 10 minutes to rid of all impurities.

Meanwhile, get your sauce mixture ready.  1TB red pepper powder, 1TB red pepper paste, 1TSP sesame oil, 1/2TSP sugar, 1TSP soy sauce, and a handful of green onions.

After the chicken is done boiling, add the sauce mixture to it and mix well.

Let it sit for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to coat the gizzards.

Then throw everything onto a hot pan with some garlic cloves and onions and you’re ready to serve!  Enjoy~
