15 Korean Dishes You Can Make at Home (Really)

Thanks to a few popular dishes, Korean cuisine is blinking brighter on the radar on the broader map of our culinary culture.

Grab your sesame oil, fish sauce, Napa cabbage, and fresh ginger, and try making those favorites, twists on those favorites, and completely different Korean dishes at home. This classic vegetarian Japchae recipe is a Korean stir-fry with translucent sweet potato noodles, fresh mushrooms, garlic, onions, spinach, and carrots. And then there's that slightly sweet, mostly savory sauce.
