Cheese Buldak (치즈불닭) Recipe

Cheese buldak is one of the famous side dish served with alcohol, but it can also be eaten as a meal. The name of the dish literally translates into “cheese fire chicken” in Korean –I hope there is no need to explain how spicy this dish is 🙂

However, I tweaked the sauce recipe a little so that it is not as spicy as the ones sold in Korea.
If you still find it spicy, just reduce the amount of gochujang (고추장; red chili sauce) and/or increase the amount of sugar.
If you would like to make it spicier, add more gochujang.

  1. Reblogged this on Bisquefinch and commented:
    Made this, and it’s absolutely fantastic. It’s going to be a permanent part of my kit. I cut the chili sauce down to 1 tsp. (and replaced the liquid with more soy sauce) and it was very good, mildly hot with a nice after-kick, perfect for a main course. This will definitely be seen again at my table.

  2. Thanks for the recipe, I do enjoy Korean food very much – particularly because it tends to be spicy.

    A tip: When i made this for my mother (who cannot eat spicy), I added some Yogurt into the pan and it managed to cut the heat pretty well. I also added some red/green peppers and it was great!

  3. We first tried this dish at a local restaurant down the road, so we were excited to give making it ourselves a go. Your recipe is delicious, and easy to follow as it was our first time making a korean dish, thanks for posting it! 🙂
