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.
Ingredients (2 servings):
2-3 pieces of chicken breast or thigh
a preferable amont of onion
shredded cheese or sliced cheese
1 spoon of crushed garlic
1 spoon of red pepper powder
1 spoon of sesame oil
2 spoons of soy sauce
2 spoons of gochujang (고추장; red chili sauce)
2 spoons of sugar
Step 1. Add 1 spoon of crushed garlic, 1 spoon of red pepper powder, 1 spoon of sesame oil, 2 spoons of soy sauce, 2 spoons of gochujang (고추장; red chili sauce), and 2 spoons of sugar in a bowl and mix together.
Step 2. Cut chicken and onion into small pieces and cook with the sauce mix in medium high heat.
Step 3. Add shredded cheese or sliced cheese when the chicken is completely cooked.
Cook in low heat until the cheese is melted.
Enjoy with rice.
