    Budae Jjigae (Army Stew) Recipe - Millon Wines

    Budae jjigae  (army stew) is extremely easy to make!

    This American Korean fusion dish is made with sausages, spam, bacon, kimchi, and gochujang. Budae Jjigae was created shortly after the armistice that ended the Korean war, using the smuggled excess foods from the U.S army bases.  This dish was created during the period of post-war impoverishment and has continued to be extremely popular to this day.

    • 2 hot dogs (or sausages)

    • 3 strips bacon (or about 3 ounces fatty pork),
