10 Most Popular Recipes of 2016
1.Budae Jjigae (Army Stew)
“It was great. Exactly how I remember it tasting. The wife ate too much (always a good sign!) I don’t know how you do it but everything of yours we’ve tried tastes so amazingly authentic and delicious.” ~ Bill
2. Dak Galbi (Korean Spicy Chicken Stir Fry)
3. Sundubu Jjigae (Korean Spicy Soft Tofu Stew)
“So simple yet really good!” ~ Devy
4. Hotteok (Korean Sweet Pancakes)
“Oh yum! I’ve never been to Korea and will probably never get the chance to go, but thank goodness (and Sue) I don’t have to miss out on one of the world’s great cuisines. I am so making these pancakes for dessert tonight.” ~ Robbie
5. Rabokki (Ramen + Tteokbokki)
“It tastes super delicious. Thank you so much Sue!” ~ Adin
6. Oven Baked Korean Style Chicken Wings
“I tried them, absolutely delicious, also tried on boneless chicken thighs.” ~ Bertrand
7. Korean Style Popcorn Chicken
“This recipe is outstanding! We loved it and I plan to make it often. Our favorite aspect of the dish was that the fried chicken remained crunchy even when covered with the sauce (I double-fried the chicken). I used all breast meat, and it was still very juicy. I tend to be wary of deep-frying, but I liked working with the bite-sized pieces of meat because they cooked so quickly. I served it with rice and your Sautéed Cucumber Side Dish.” ~ Elizabeth
“I have made this twice in 2 weeks!! Could not find rice cakes, ordered on line!! This recipe is absolutely delicious!! Now I can watch my Kdramas and have a great Korean meal also!!
Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!!” ~ Karen
8. Spicy Pork Bulgogi Rice Bowl
“I have never eaten Korean food before but I made this today and it was sooooo delicious. My husband and I love spicy food but I was grateful for the salad on the side. Yummm I will be doing this again. Thank you.” ~ Judith
9. Kimchi Udon Noodle Stir Fry
“I made this last night, one of the best meals I have had in ages – such a perfect balance of flavours too! thank you!” ~ Lu
10. Fish Cake Soup
“Yay! I like fish cakes, and now that we have a Korean grocery in our city I can buy the basic ingredients that I need and I can make more of the dishes in your recipes. ^_^” ~ Laya

Here are 5 of your all time favourite recipes.
“I came across your website looking for a simple bibimbap recipe and it got me hooked!!! So delicious!!! I have made it several times, my husband loves it (especially the great sauce) and the kids like it (without the sauce though, which they reckon is too hot). It tastes much better when I make it than when we have it in a restaurant (ok, Munich, Germany, may not be THE best place for Korean restaurants).” ~ Nina
“This came out amazing! I usually suck at cooking but this was easy to follow and now my belly is happy! ? I added Zucchinis and it gave it a little extra crunch. Thank you for this recipe!” ~ Elena
“I just made CHOPCHAE, a big hit with my family. They loved it! It’s taste reminded me of how my mom used to make it. Thank you for sharing ? ~ Jynn

“I had made beef bulgogi before – pretty unsuccessful I must admit. Gave it another try with this recipe and it might have been the best dish I have ever made. My wife and I loved it.” ~ Flo
