My friend and I originally came up with this recipe for an online (Korean) cooking contest. Little did we know that we came up with a dish that’s easy yet worthy to be in any dinner table here in Asia or across the globe. A classic Filipino favorite spiced up with Korean ingredients. Truly a unique winner combo!
