Cookbook Challenge - Day 3

Today I made the Korean-style Curry Rice. I have never had this before so like all the other new-to-me recipes I was really curious about it. It was very saucy, which we LOVE. It tasted very similar to Japanese curry but I think less sweet. Hard to describe its flavor, not full of fresh herb flavor like Thai curries. Closer to Indian curries but milder and richer with a thick mouthfeel. Like a curry flavored stew in gravy thickened by a roux. Not too spicy and goes well with kimchi.

It's amazing to me how so many cuisines have a curry but they all taste different because of the different herbs and spices that go in it.

This curry was SO easy to make. Basically cut up the ingredients which included beef, potatoes, carrots and onions, throw it in a pot and boil. Add the curry powder mix to water to make a paste then add to the cooking veggies and meat near the end which turns it into a rich, thick sauce. It's very yellow. The package it says that it's the turmeric. It was good. Nice meal to eat in the winter when you need something to stick to your ribs!

Tomorrow I was going to make oyster rice but I'm having trouble finding oysters and am too tired to go down to the seafood center. Tired of going shopping every single day! So, I'll skip that one for right now and go with bibimbap. I didn't read through the recipe yet but from the picture it looks like I have all the ingredients in the form of all the sides I've been making. We'll see. Stay tuned!
