#2 Curry

Ottogi Curry Rice 🍛 🇰🇷 * * 韓国土産の一つで購入したカレーのルー。 りんご🍎の写真が載っているのは オットギのバーモントカレーという商品名。 日本のバーモントとどう違うのか作って食べてみました。 ・ 面白い…! 日本は固形ルーに対してこのオットギのカレーは粉末。 粉末だからめっちゃ溶けやすいので作りやすい。 またオットギのカレーはとろみがすごくあって、 日本のカレーは煮込むのに対して韓国のカレーは 即席カレーのように短時間で出来上がります。 お子様でも作りやすい♪ お味はというと…オットギのカレーはあっさり。 うーん、コクがない…💧 購入したカレーはあえて日本の甘口に合わせて 買ってみましたが、やっぱり韓国、 少しスパイシーでした。 次は中辛や辛口も試してみたい…♪ ・ …カレーとキムチを一緒に食べればあっさりも納得かも… ・ 2枚目はオットギオリジナルカレーだと思いますが、 りんご入りの方が美味しかったです。 ・ Korean curry is different from Japanese one. This curry is thick, but taste is weak and a little spicy. I was interested in it ! ・ * #韓国土産#カレーのルー#カレー#オットギ#バーモントカレー#オットギカレー#咖喱飯 #koreangift#curry#ottogi#ottogicurry#foodstagram #instafood#cookingram#카레#오뚜기#바몬드카레#오뚜기카레 * *

Quick easy Korean meals usually come in the form of noodles or tteok, but curry is packaged carb-free. Instead, instant Korean curry is made to be heated up and poured over already-cooked rice. While it doesn’t necessarily require rice, if you have rice, this quick meal is perfect!

#3 Bibimbap

Bibimbap is a dish that consists of numerous toppings upon a bed of rice. These toppings usually include seaweed, sliced beef, tofu, pepper paste, and numerous vegetables.

Considering all the fresh vegetables and products, some might believe it’s impossible to create an instant bibimbap. However, with multiple freeze-drying ingredients, instant bibimbap is possible with toppings like kimchi and pepper paste! The perfect Korean quick meal to make at home.

#4 Jajangmyeon

With a delicious black bean sauce, jajangmyeon is a hybrid of Chinese and Korean cuisine that’s made its mark on the population of Korea. Jajangmyeon’s popularity has led to many instant variations of the dish. As a result, you can now have a delicious bowl of jajangmyeon ready to eat in the form of ramyeon or even in a microwaveable bowl!

#5 Ramyeon

Most popular amongst this list, Korea’s variety of instant ramyeon provides tastes ranging from mouth-wateringly savory to mouth-meltingly spicy. Want something cheesy? There’s a ramyeon for that? Are you craving kimchi? There’s a ramyeon for that too! In any case, ramyeon is always a good choice of a meal that can be prepared in a short amount of time.

All of these dishes, of course, are best enjoyed when the time is taken to properly prepare them, but some may need more time and money. As a result, these instant alternatives were created to provide the same tastes in a short amount of time and a low amount of money. So next time you crave Korean food, enjoy one of our quick picks!
