- Hoddeok. This is a fried yeast dumpling that is hugely popular in Korea. Mix one-fourth teaspoon dry yeast, one-fourth teaspoons sugar and two tablespoons of water in a bowl and leave in a warm location to ferment for fifteen minutes. Sift 1-1/4 cups of white flour into a bowl and add a pinch of salt, six tablespoons of milk and the yeast water mixture you made earlier. Mix well and cover with a cloth. Leave the mixture alone to rise for about two hours. For the stuffing, mix one-fourth teaspoon cinnamon and five tablespoons of brown sugar together in a small bowl. Oil your hands, separate one-fifth of the dough and flatten the dough into a thick disk. Place a teaspoon of stuffing inside and seal like a regular dumpling. With oil heated in a frying pan, place dumpling into the pan. When your dumpling is brown, turn over to cook the other side until both sides are brown.
- Bulgogi. Combine the following ingredients in a large bowl: 1-1/2 pounds of beef rib eye sliced thinly, two tablespoons of soy sauce, one-fourth cup sugar, one tablespoon of minced garlic, two teaspoons Asian sesame oil, two teaspoons Mirin and two tablespoons of water. Mix well and allow the meat marinate for two to 24 hours. Grill meat and serve.
- Toasto. This Korean street food recipe is for Korean breakfast sandwiches. Start by toasting two slices of bread on a griddle with lots of butter. In a bowl mix one egg with shredded cabbage, onions and carrots and fry the mixture on the griddle. Top egg and veggies with brown sugar and ketchup to taste. Place on toasted bread. Add ham or cheese if desired.
- Sanma-Jeon. The easy Korean street food recipe features sanma, which is a root vegetable. Peel the sanma and slice into one-fourth-inch thick slices. In heated oil in a frying pan, fry the slices and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Slice one red pepper (or whatever pepper you like) and add one thin slice to the top of each piece of fried Sanma. Serve warm.
- Nooroongji. This simple and delicious Korean street food recipe is essentially deep-fried rice. Spread cooked rice in a thin layer on a griddle over medium heat. Roast until crispy and brown, turning carefully to keep pieces together. Roast on the other side until both sides are golden brown and crispy. In a deep stockpot with oil, deep-fry the nooroongji pieces carefully. After they are fried, remove from pot and leave to drain on a paper towel. Sprinkle with white sugar.
