De in D.C.

Would this come out the same if made in a pressure cooker?


I grew up eating this dish as well and my mom used to add whole garlic cloves, which end up quite tender, and hard-boiled eggs (peeled). The eggs soak up the sauce and makes for a great side dish...just slice & serve.


De, I think this would be great in a pressure cooker.

JA Mom, I will have to try the garlic and eggs. That sounds delish.


This looks interesting. Brown sugar and soy is a nice combination. I would think that the whole jalapenos would be too hot... I will have to try this.


I just tried this last night and it was delicious! I made mine in a pressure cooker and it took about 30 minutes from prep to finish. Thanks for a great recipe.

Ths sounds realy good- what about a crock pot? DO you think it would work? I am always looking for things I can prep beofre work that will greet me with a cooked dinner when I get home!


That looks too east not to try. That's an awful lot of chilis though... you sure you don't have a different heat scale because your palate grew up with korean food? ;) There's a JA dish (shoyu chicken) and Filipino dish (adobo) which a very similar, soy sauce braised dishes which we love. So I'm sure we'll love this one too.


Just had this for dinner tonight - hubby said it was just like the version his mom used to make (minus the hard boiled eggs - didn't realize that was so popular). Thanks for such an easy, delicious dish!

P.S. - We put in 10 jalapenos and will probably add more next time; there really isn't much heat and the peppers themselves become so mild and yummy during the simmer.


Yay Pam and Kim! I'm so glad you tried the recipe. And, see? 10 jalapenos are nothing to worry about, right? :-)


i am making this friday. i need to pop it in the crockpot though...any words on that? also, my jalapens were the size of bananas so i am thinking maybe the full amount would be too much? the bf is half indonesian so no stanger to heat but me and the littlefoodie are super honkies and can't take it.
oh, and soy sauce...we use the think syrupy abc kind..is that anything like the korean? its what the indo inlaws use!


This looks so good! You should cross-post the recipe.

hi there! i found this blog via kimchi mamas. :-) i decided to try this out since my own mother isn't good at giving me recipes - just estimations.
i let this simmer for a few hours and the jalapenos made it spicier than i wanted, but otherwise it was very close to my mom's. i guess i just have some sensitive spicebuds. :-P i added some garlic and boiled eggs (as JAMom suggested & as my mom does as well).
also, i linked this post in my blog. http://mrsjkimcheese.blogspot.com/2007/10/tastastic-tuesday.html
hope this is the right way to do it. i'm not totally up on my link etiquette.
thanks for the wonderful recipes!


Good post, this looks interesting.
Best regards,

What does eating Activia Yogurt regulate our digestive system?
What is the difference between regular yogurt and Activia Yogurt? Also, how does yogurt regulate our digestive system? Yogurt is just milk, how does it help our body more than milk?

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
