Korean Appetizers

Continuing on a Korean food streak, here are 2 of my favorite “appetizers” to eat. Korean food is notorious for all the small dishes surrounding the main dish. One that is popular and easy to make are these zucchini rounds.

Most recipes I’ve seen called for a portion of ground meat to also be put together with this before dipping in flour and egg, but I just dip in flour (pat off excess) dunk in egg and then fry up. Dip in soy sauce/sesame oil. We used a mix of this ponzu infused soy sauce that was amazing!!

Another delectable, though perhaps a bit more labor intensive dish are these stuffed Korean peppers. Here I stuffed it with some marinated ground beef (soy sauce, sugar, garlic, sesame oil, salt/pepper). When buying the peppers really try to look for ones that are fairly straight and a bit fat. Clear out the seeds, but know that there is some kick in the ribs (white parts) inside the peppers too. Stuff. Dunk in flour. Dunk in eggs. Fry up. Devour with sounds of “omg this is so good”. I could enjoy a whole meal with these and these zucchini rounds. But this was part of my Korean cooking blowout for friends, so they got to enjoy the other good eats I posted earlier. šŸ™‚
