I don't know why we didn't think of this any sooner. Then again, Korean Club is only a fledgling club. We've only been around for two years! At the end of each month, we teach the members of Korean Club how to make a dish native to South Korea. Having been doing so for the past six months, we only thought it was appropriate to get on right ahead and test their skills. Two weeks ago, we hosted the first annual Korean Club Cook Off.
Prior to this, we split up the members in four groups and had them discuss what recipe they'd be making. We gave them full power over this, and the only thing the board members provided were portable gas stoves. At first we had our doubts about this entire spectacle, but boy did my members prove me wrong.
Because Nikki's everyone's favorite goober.
Here we have Group 1 who made marinated Samgyupsal and Bokkeumbap (Pork Belly and Fried Rice) .
Group 2 who made Bulgogi (Marinated thinly sliced beef).
Group 3 who made Naengmyeon (cold buckwheat noodles with gochujang sauce) .
Group 4 who made Chadol Baegi with Kimchi Bokkeumbap (kimchi fried rice).
You've no idea how shocked I was when the board members, being the judges, ate the food. They were all so delicious, it was really hard to choose who won. In my book, they were all winners. Though the naengmyeon was a bit spicy, it still was delicious nonetheless. In the end, it was Group 1 who took home the prize. Their marinated Samgyupsal along with their simple Bokkeumbap was to die for.
Congratulations Group 1!
