There’s a Korean Restaurant in Makati that I frequent to. I order their Korean stew all the time and have been wishing that I can find the recipe and replicate at home. It’s becoming too expensive for me to always go there, haha! After so many years of yearning, I finally found the recipe that is closest to the taste of my favorite Kimchi Stew!!! So today, sharing with you now one of my most-beloved recipe: Kimchi Stew!
I was too nervous after my first try. However, I’m happy to share that my Kimchi Stew was successful! It was really yummy and I love it! The next time I crave for stew after binge-watching Korean shows, I now know what to cook!
