Simply Korean eCookbook

Yeah!!!! It is finally here!
My first-ever cookbook, Simply Korean, is now available for sale online in digital format.

Simply Korean

Ever since I started Beyond Kimchee, I have received many email messages asking when I would publish a cookbook. I have been longing to do so for the past two years but it was not easy to complete due to my busy life. Now I am proud to announce the completion of first cookbook in digital form. Yeah!!!

When it comes to cooking Korean food, choosing which dishes to start with can be overwhelming–savory Korean pancakes, meat and poultry dishes, numerous soups and stews, the incredible side dishes, and of course, kimchi. There are too many to choose from!

I titled this book Simply Korean.  With over 100 pages, this book contains 36 of the most requested and popular Korean recipes that are showcased on my blog, from appetizers to desserts. I also included some basic Korean pantry items that people need to stock up on if they want to achieve that true Korean flavor.

Below are some snapshots that provide a sneak peek into this new “eCookbook.”

BBQ Pork Ribs

I can't resist pork ribs. Especially the BBQ sauce kind. With meat that is falling-off-the-bone tender, even with the sweet and savory BBQ glaze sticking onto every finger, I can chow them down without thinking twice. I made BBQ pork ribs the other day. It was delicious so I thought I might share ...

It surely is one of those easy-peasy comfort foods that doesn't require much time and effort. It tastes great served ...

No Knead Bran Bread

I enjoy baking breads, all kinds of breads. As much as I love eating freshly cooked rice, I believe freshly baked bread right out of the oven is equally delicious. Kneading the bread dough with my elbow grease is one minor hesitation that I face, but I can use my mixer to do the job. However, ever ...
