What do I miss in my recipe?

  • 9

I repost this thread by adding my recipe (although everything is explained in the video):

It is my own creation. France - Korean dish.
Dish name: the Korean Sandwichi
Question: it is good but not perfect. Any suggestion to improve it?
Please add any suggestions, I will try them.

I have been asked to share the recipe by writing, so here it is:

Ingredient:
French Baguette
Tomato, Lettuce, eggs, Parmesan

Korean Red Pepper paste
Korean Soy sauce, Sesame oil, Sesame leaves
Green onion, Shallot, Garlic, salt, sugar, pepper

Meat Seasoning sauce: 120 g ground beef
18 g (1 tablespoon) soy sauce
6 g (½ tablespoons) sugar
9 g (2 teaspoons) minced green onion
5.5 g (1 teaspoon) minced garlic
0.3 g (⅛ teaspoons) ground black pepper
4 g (1 teaspoon) sesame oil

  1. Skip the Parmesan - there are enough salty flavors already.
    Needs something acidic. Perhaps a vinegar-ed vegetable or a little ginger. A vinegar-ed vegetable would add some texture and crunch too. The lettuce adds a little of this, but not enough imho.

    1. re: meatn3

      I think some kimchi would work nicely for the vinegar-ed vegetable. Maybe separate the leaves and lay them across.

    2. Curious as to why you separate the eggs and make white and yolk omelette.
      I cannot view the video on my computer, so if you explain it there I apologize.

      1. Onyonghashamika Aialn,

        Bul kogi (bulgogi, bulkogi) is missing from your sandwich.

        1. The ingredient list is incomplete. The sandwich needs some Korean barbequed beef known as
          bul kogi (also bulkogi or bulgogi). Substitute the barbequed beef for the ground beef. Recipes can be found in some Asian cookbooks of which I have about 6.

            Hi Chilidude, yes, bulgogi can be a good idea. I will try it.
            Hi Meatn3, my friends who tried it loved the cheesy part. Let me see is I can do the sauce less salty then.

            1. re: alainphone

              You might try mozzarella, especially fresh, instead of parmesan and mushrooms cooked with the meat. For some reason vinegar vegetable also appeals to me.

          2. Maybe some quick pickled (vinegar and sugar and salt) carrots or cukes.

            1. Thank you for all your suggestions. I replaced the parmesan with emmental...it taste much better and less salty. I balanced the taste with bulgogi. It is ok, just ok.
              Great ideas about the pickles...it must be separated though (they cannot be part of the sandwich). Anymore suggestion welcomed!
