Korean works really well with Chenin Blanc, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. The Essay Chenin Blanc with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 9 dollars per bottle.

Essay Chenin Blanc

Old, bush-vine chenin blanc was used as the anchor of this wine and gives it its intense fruitiness and refreshing acidity. The viognier adds floral and spicy notes and a soft, appealing richness to the palate. Perfect with grilled seafood and chicken.

Instructions

  1. 1.Make the stock by cutting the beef into thin strips and boiling them in a large pot. Simmer on medium-low heat and skim off any foam or scum using a fine mesh sieve or strainer. Adding half an onion and some garlic cloves for the stock is optional. Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a simmer cooking for 15~20 minutes.
  2. 2.Meanwhile, rinse the rice cake slices in cold water and drain well.
  3. 3.Stir in the rice cake slices and the 2 tablespoons soup soy sauce. Boil gently about 8~10 minutes or until the rice cake slices start to float. Season with a little salt and pepper. When rice cakes are almost cooked, include the scallion slices and beaten egg.
  4. 4.Make the garnish ingredients by separating the egg whites and yolks. In a non-stick pan or skillet, add olive oil and fry them in olive oil into a thin sheet; transfer to cutting board and cut into thin strips. Toast gim (seaweed) sheets over heat until crispy; cut into thin strips.
  5. 5.Ladle the soup into bowls, dividing the rice cake slices evenly. For each serving, place a nice handful of the fried egg white, yolks, and seaweed strips.
  6. 6.Eat hot otherwise the rice cakes will "booluh," or get soggy.
  7. *Most Koreans include mandu (dumplings) with tteokguk to make it heartier. If doing so, simply add them in the broth a few minutes before the rice cakes. These ingredients are available at Korean grocers and supermarkets with well-stocked Asian food sections.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

  • You can choose lean ground beef or switch to ground turkey or ground bison if you prefer less fatty meat.

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

Price Tips

  • The price of ground beef is going up. Beans and lentils, on the other hand, are both cheap and filling. Depending on the recipe, you might be able to add beans or lentils to stretch out your beef.

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • Seaweed for cooking can be found in Asian markets or on Amazon.

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

Green Tips

  • Choose organic, grassfed beef whenever possible. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating a few vegetarian meals so you can afford better meat!
