I first ate Korean Beef Stew at the old Kimchi Korean Fastfood in the mid-seventies. My love for Korean beef stew inspired me to make my own version similar to the Kimchi Korean beef Stew. Here is my version that is a hit with my guests.

    Hi! I’m trying this recipe this weekend and couldn’t find rice wine in my grocery. What can I substitute? I have white cooking wine, can I use that? Also, is the sesame oil you used here the darker one? Thanks!!!

  • msanti31

    fact: do you know that they use grated fresh pears to make the sauce sweet? try substituting 2 grated pears with 1/2 cup sugar. it will work wonders.

    I am wondering if sesame cooking oil can be used on the skin? Or would that be a different kind of sesame oil?

    I was reading about sesame oils many uses and one of them was for massage purposes.

  • noemi

    I buy the Sesame oil at the grocery store so it is not the one for the skin.

    I’m making a sugar solution to wax, and it asks for 1 tbsp of sesame oil. Is sesame oil basically the same as Olive oil or vegetable oil?

  • noemi

    sesame oil is aromatic
