SAMGEOBSAL (Korean Food)

100_1817 100_1816


Yesterday, I was craving for some Korean food. When I started being sick with my Gastritis, I ceased from eating some Korean food, I didn’t have the appetite for it. But yesterday, I gave in to my cravings.

I went to the store and got me some of the ingredients and oh boy!! Was I happy to taste that cilantro with some Korean seasonings in my mouth. I thought I was in heaven. So yummie!

I am not writing down the recipe, since not all of us eat Korean food. But those who’s interested, let me know and I will give you the recipe.

Thanks for looking and have a great day to all.

Shrimp Fried Rice

My hubby loves fried rice, only when I make it.. It doesn’t matter whether it’s shrimp or chicken, as long as I made it, he will gobble it..

Most of the time, he prefers Shrimp Fried Rice, so I have to buy the raw shrimp, it’s tastier than the cooked one. He loves it most with egg over easy on top of his rice. I love to put some carrots, or green onions, but hubby is not fond of any veggies.


Picture: Courtesy of Google, but it looks exactly like my fried rice.


2-3 cups of freshly cooked white rice

1 tbsp. carrots, chopped into small pieces

1/2 tbsp green onions (onion leaves)

corn and green peas are optional

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

1/2 small onion, chopped

1/2 –1 tsp. soy sauce

salt and pepper

4 eggs

10 pcs. medium shrimp, peeled.

1 tsp. cooking oil


1. In a medium pan, crack open 2 eggs, and scramble it out of the pan, and set aside when it’s cooked

2. In the same pan, sautee the garlic, and onion. Then put the shrimp, pepper and soysauce. When the shrimp seemed to be cooked, add the carrots. Cook for at least 2-3 minutes

3. Put the rice, and the rest of the veggies, stir occasionally to avoid burning of the rice. Then add the scrambled egg. Season to taste.

4. The rest of the eggs would be cooked over easy and put over the rice when you serve it.. (it’s my hubby thing)

Serve 2-3

Kalderetang Manok


Actually, the way I cook my Kalderetang Manok is just the same way I cook my Afritada, the only difference is, when it’s almost done, I would add coconut milk with a dash Crushed Red  Pepper. I am telling you, when I cook this, it doesn’t last.

1/4 cup soy sauce

2.  Add the chicken, soy sauce and at least 2 cups of water, ground pepper, bay leaves and half of the red bell pepper.

PR2, wow!

It's been a while since I last updated this site of mine. Since I have 3 other blogsite to think about, I kind of neglected this..This site is supposed to be for my cooking posts, but lately I haven't had a chance to take a picture of my finished product since before I can even take a picture of it,we would gobble the food.

I just thought of checking the PR of this site, since all my 3 blogs don't have any PR yet. I was surprised that it's PR2, wow..can't believe that.

I am so thankful for the people that keep coming back here even though this is not updated for the longest time. Ate Cecile, thank you so much for being not tired of visiting this site. I will promise to post some entries soon..

Again, that's to all my friends who are still interested in coming here. I will make sure that I won't neglect this site again..

Next post would be Kalderetang Manok..it's really good and mouth watering..But, I will have to cook it first, hahaha!
