Spinach with Sesame and Garlic. This is a fun take on spinach, a Korean version, with the spinach wilted in sesame oil with garlic, and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. I found the recipe years ago in Mark Bittman’s The Best Recipes in the World. In typical Bittman style, the spinach is quick, easy, and good.
Korean Meat Marinade (Spicy or Non-Spicy) This is more than just a marinade recipe. It is a recipe for Korean BBQ beef. The ingredients and method both seem easy and call for easily obtained things that you probably have in your pantry if you cook Oriental food.
