Asian Braised Beef In Soy Sauce
Beef is a common ingredient in Korean cooking and thus beef lovers love Korean foods such as this. Sogogi-jangjorim is simply beef cooked in a fragrant soy sauce broth. Since it is not too spicy, it is much loved my kids when served with rice. Aeri uses chicken eggs instead of the traditional quail eggs. If you are not a beef lover, simply substitute the beef with chicken. Vegetarians need not be disappointed and can add mushrooms or tofu to the sauce!
