Our schedules are very different this semester, but we have made the promise that we are going to try have home-cooked dinners together as much as possible. We started this week by cooking steak on our portable grill. I broke out some leftover soju, and we had a nice impromptu Korean meal.
Our favorite restaurant in Korea serves a side dish that consists of raw onions with a dark sauce poured over them. I would go to that particular restaurant just to eat the onions, and hate that I didn’t ask them how to make the sauce. We have been struggling to replicate this sauce ever since we got back to America. The main ingredient has to be soy sauce, but it also contains wasabi and other spices/oils. You can see our attempt in the photograph in the bottom left corner above, and although our attempt was not terrible, there was something missing, but I just don’t know what it was. Thankfully, everything else turned out great.
