Weekly Korean words with Jae Korean101.com videos episodes 16-20

Korean101.com produces a youtube video every week called, "Weekly Korean words with Jae." I have reproduced the sentences they create here, because for myself I find that the subtitles go way too fast and having to stop the video every few seconds is irritating. I thought that other people may have the same problem and this might help them. I haven't corrected the English grammar of the subtitles, so you will see that some times it is a bit awkward when you read the English translation.

My Little Kitchen Season 2 Episodes 9-12

Arirang television produced a second season of "My Little Kitchen." The last episodes of this series.

Episode 9 Part 1 Bean Sprout Soup with Rice.

Almost done with this series, can't wait. Fabien's voice is so grating.

Part 2 Boiled Fish in Soy sauce.

I've never seen anyone fry the fish before boiling it, seems a bit weird.


Episode 10 Part 1 Beef Mushroom Hot Pot.

It seemed like a bit of a waste to make your own broth, but not use the ingredients from the broth for the soup.

Part 2 Spicy Stir-fried Rice cakes with Fish cakes.

Yeah..., no. Please use Maangchi's recipe if you want to make ddukbokki, thanks.


Episode 11 Part 1 Rice-cake Soup.

Traditional recipe, mostly no liberties taken.

Part 2 Marinated Grilled Beef Slices.

This is a type of sanjeok, and used to cooked on skewers. Some times ground beef is used and shaped into square patties, like a burger.


Episode 12 Part 1 Soybean Paste Stew.

I would replace half of the potato with zucchini.

Part 2 Korean Three-colored Pasta Soup.

Why couldn't they just call it sujebi in the title, like they did in the video? Also, I would not call this pasta, dumpling is more accurate.


Currently watching: Just finished this awful series, back to King of Food.

Queen of Sorcery (The Belgariad, Book 2) by David Eddings
Rereading a favorite from high school. David Eddings died while we were living in Carson City, NV, he too lived in Carson City. It's sad to think I never got to meet him.

My Little Kitchen Season 2 Episodes 5-8

Arirang television produced a second season of "My Little Kitchen."

Episode 5 Part 1 Bulgogi with Rice.

It looked good until the cream sauce was added.

Part 2 Donggeurang Ttaeng, Chili Pepper Pancake, Shitake mushroom .

Mostly traditional, so not messed up.


Episode 6 Part 1 Soft Tofu Stew with Seafood.

Another more traditional recipe, so much better in my opinion than the fusion food that was shown before, except where is the gochujang???

Part 2 Dumplings.

Standard recipe.


Episode 7 Part 1 Pumpkin Rice with cheese.

Cheese? Everything was okay, until they added the cheese. Luckily the cheese is easy to leave out. I'm really, really not liking this series.

Part 2 Chicken Puffs.

Meh.


Episode 8 Part 1 Seaweed soup.

From far away this looks okay, until he adds soy sauce to the soup.

Part 2 Mung Bean Pancakes.

I hope people aren't making Fabien's recipes and thinking that is really what Korean food tastes like.


Currently watching: This awful series, unfortunately.
