Korean army stew, known as Budae Jjigae, is Korean-American fusion dish. It's made with canned processed meats, but with the Korean flavor of kimchi and instant ramen noodles.
Make Budae jigae sauce: Mix together Korean chili flakes (gochugaru), gochujang, soy sauces, garlic, and pepper in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
Onion on the bottom: Put slices of onion on the bottom of a shallow pan.
Arrange fillings: Arrange the jjigae fillings (Spam slices, hot dogs, sausage, tofu, mushroom, kimchi, and etc) as you please.
Add sauce and stock: Add instant ramen noodles, cheese and the seasoning paste. Pour in enough stock to barely cover everything.
Boil: Bring the stew to a boil on a portable burner. Reduce the heat to low and simmer. Stir the seasoning paste to distribute it throughout the stew.
Korean army stew doesn’t take long to cook. When the ramen noodle is soft, enjoy the noodles first. Then you can serve the stew hot right at the table
You can also serve it with rice, drizzling the broth over the rice to soak up all the wonderful flavor.
