You don't need ten side dishes as you would in a restaurant to complete your Korean meal, and most people don't regularly dine restaurant-style with a table filled with food. You'll always be impressing every Korean foodie with the main dish and a few side dishes.
1. Doenjang Jjigae
Doenjang jjigae (almost) is one of Korea's most common stew dishes made from Korean soybean paste (doenjang), a form of soybean and brine fermented bean paste. It's a comfort food.
2. Kimchi Fried Rice
Having Kimchi fried rice, as well as leftover rice, is a perfect way to use leftover Kimchi which is a little past its prime. Canadian bacon or thinly sliced beef, pork, ham, or even spam may help make it. Or, use tofu for a vegetarian protein.
3. Pa Jun
Korean pancake with scallions is simple when you want a fast and cheap appetizer or side dish, and is always a big crowd pleaser. You can eat it with a soy sauce or a dipping sauce.
4. Egg Roll
To make this beautiful dish you only need 10 minutes. For breakfast, as part of a lunch box, or for dinner you might enjoy a Korean rolled egg omelette. You can change the vegetables and even add a few hams or meats.
