BUDAE JJIGAE Korean Army Stew

Comforting and warming Korean stew with ramen, select meats, veggies, and a savory umami broth. Ready in under 30 minutes, this dish is delicious and easily customizable!

Mix together base seasoning sauce

In a medium mixing bowl mix together gochugaru, gochujang, soy sauce, fish sauce, rice wine, sugar, black pepper, minced garlic, and choice of stock stock.

Prepare your toppings

A balance of sweet, spicy, and savory will yield the most flavorful stew. Classic toppings I highly recommend always including are spam, tofu, cabbage, ramen, and cheese.

Cook the toppings

In a large shallow pot or braiser, add in your toppings. Pour in your stock and add the seasoning sauce in the center. Cover and cook on medium high heat until the stock begins to boil.

Add Noodles & Cheese

Add the noodles, cheese, and green onions. Continue cooking uncovered for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the noodles soften.
