Comfort Food...Korean-American Style

Where do I begin? Ok...I have an excuse...I promise...for real.
'Excuse' is the key word as to why I haven't posted an entry in a while. I do promise however I have cooked.

The following recipe is inspired by my nationality, being that I am part Korean, here is a little twist of Asian with everyday 'American' food! This is a personal favorite of mine. The inspiration behind this dish is my mom. She made this dish quite often when we were younger...I consider this as my comfort food! Mmmmmmmmmmmm!! I'm salivating just thinking about it!

Sadly, this one is not from Holly's cookbook, however, it is a great, inexpensive 'PPF' (Poor People's Food) dish! I have to say...many 'PPF' dishes are the most least according to my pallet.

Grocery List:
Green Onions
Garlic Salt or Minced Garlic
Ground Red Hot Pepper
Salt and Pepper
Hot dogs (beef franks)
Sesame Oil
Chili Sauce (pictured below)
White Rice

Are You Ready? Set, Prep and Go!

First Dish:
* Cook white rice and set aside.

Second Dish (Cucumber Kim-Chee):

* 2 Cucumbers (slice to make circles, then take a section of the sliced circles and cut again into small rectangle pieces)
* Green Onions (slice in small pieces)
* a small drop of sesame oil
* salt and pepper
* hot chili sauce (as pictured below) (Just enough to make cucumbers spicy...

Disclaimer: very spicy sauce, so please be careful)
*Mix all together (cover with saran wrap and place in refrigerator for about an hour so seasonings can come together)

Third Dish:

* 1/2 tsp. (teaspoon) of sesame oil
* 1-2 packages of beef frank hot dogs (cut in small pieces)

* Ground Red Hot Pepper dry seasoning
(You can find it in the spice aisle at the grocery store)
* Garlic salt or minced garlic
* Salt and pepper
* (Optional) Green onions
Mix hot dogs with the above seasonings, somewhat brown and you are ready to serve!!!!
I know it sounds weird...but it is delicious!

Best to serve with Ice Cold Water!

Ma - shee - so (long 'o' sound) -yo (long 'o' sound)
Very good food


  1. Eek, I'll have to run the ingredients past Hubby. So many times I make a new recipe, and he doesn't like it. Hmph!

    I didn't know you were Korean? No wonder you're so gorgeous, girl! Was that hippie van story about you?

  2. Hi Deb...yes that story was about my parents..pretty cool, huh? Let me know if you try the hot dogs and husband is not into that 'stuff' but he really likes it!!!!
