South Korea plays Algeria at 3pm EST in Group H World Cup action. The two teams should be relatively evenly matched. In a food competition however, there is no contest. The national dish of Algeria is couscous, which while delicious cannot beat umami-mad Korean cuisine. Looking at a list of popular Korean dishes and condiments, it’s like a who-who’s of tastiness. Beat this line-up: Bulgogi, bibibambop, banchan chicken, with the most valuable player awards going to kimchi and gochujang of course.
Speaking of gochujang the spicy pepper paste, check out this post on the RoodonFood version of Dak dori tang (Korean Spicy Chicken Stew – works great with tofu as a substitute too).
World Cup Food Victory: South Korea
I love stews and this one looks like a winner! We don’t cook much stew in the summer time and that’s one of the reasons why Winter is my favorite time of year. Great post!
Haha I totally agree. Thanks for the comment!
I LOVE Dakdoridang. Didn’t know you had posted a recipe too!!! Awesome. Also, love the genius idea of World Cup Foods!! Cheers.
Thanks for the kind words. It’s so tasty. Are you going for Germany or the U.S? Must be hard to decide? Obviously Germany is the better team.
