Sorry, I don’t imply to shout at you, particularly on a Monday, but it’s true what I stated up there, here is the greatest Monday dinner. It’s an beneath thirty minute meal, tremendous simple, and further delicious.
Ok, all of the dramatics aside, I do pretty love this recipe and am very excited to share it with you guys for thus many reasons.
I wished to leap the week off with yet another Korean impressed recipe, simply due to the fact you guys…we are simply NULL days clear of boarding an aircraft and flying off to South Korea. Craziness! It’s nonetheless spectacular to me that we're headed there to observe my brother compete inside the Olympics. I recognise I’ve been speaking about this for weeks, but here is for particular the coolest factor to ever occur inside my family. I were following alongside with my brother Red’s Instagram stories (it is so fun having social media so we'll all be a aspect of his experience). He spent Saturday in Soul, South Korea getting equipped for his Team USA Opening and Closing Ceremony outfit. Yup, simply one other regular Saturday…
One of my favourite Korean impressed recipes is Bulgogi, which is Korean gilled pork in a candy and spicy sauce. It’s pretty simply so good. I even have a recipe for Korean Bulgogi BBQ Steak Bowls that you guys all appear to love, but I wished to create a lighter, easier hen model utilizing the Instant Pot (don’t worry, I covered gradual cooker directions too).
The key to this recipe is all inside the sauce, it’s sweet, sticky, and just somewhat bit spicy. It takes typically boring hen to a entire new level.
Most regular Bulgogi marinades use pears and much of brown sugar, but I wished to maintain this hen at the more fit side, so I swapped honey for brown sugar and diminished the sweetness somewhat via way of omitting the pear (which I am pretty now not a fan of anyway). The relaxation of the sauce consists of Gochujang (Korean chili paste) sesame oil, ginger and garlic.
And then? Everything will get blended and cooked up inside the Instant Pot (or gradual cooker). It might now not be easier.
I desire to serve this Korean hen over a bed of rice with a few kimchi, toasted sesame seeds, and inexperienced onions. I also introduced in a few thinly sliced mango…because I am obsessed and I can’t assist myself. Mango is for particular now not Korean, but it’s delicious. Just move with me in this one.
Here’s the thing, as I said, I’m particular this isn't traditional. But that’s variety of the concept of those Korean impressed recipes I’m sharing, they’re in hassle-free terms Korean inspired. I can’t wait to see how the recipes I’m sharing now, vary from the actual deal Korean meals that we might be having fun with in South Korea. My aim is to discover a few new inspiration whereas there and be capable to come house and share new, further traditional, Korean recipes with you guys.
But till then, you must perhaps make this chicken, simply due to the fact regular or not, it’s pretty stinkin’ good.
Also? I assume if there’s one factor I would prepare dinner inside the Instant Pot, it'll be chicken. I’m now not going to lie, I even have a love/hate courting with my Instant Pot. I’m nonetheless attempting to determine particular issues out. But if there’s one factor the Instant Pot appears to prepare dinner amazingly well, it’s chicken. No subject what, it all of the time seems tender, moist, and via way of no means dry.
That said, this may simply be cooked inside the gradual cooker and even inside the oven.
And with that, I’m off to maintain running away in guidance for my week away. Happiest Monday!
PS. I even have in hassle-free terms ever been out of the nation once, and that was to Mexico, so this might be a entire new variety of journey for me. It must be fun…and very interesting, pondering nobody in my household is aware of even just somewhat Korean. Ahh, yikes!
