Recreating Maangchi's Budae Jjigae (Korean Army Stew) From Taste | Reverse Engineering | Bon Appétit

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

We challenged resident Bon Appétit supertaster and test kitchen director Chris Morocco to recreate Maangchi’s Budae Jjigae, sometimes also known as Army base Stew or Korean Army Stew. The catch? He’ll have to use each of his senses – other than sight. Does Chris have what it takes to recognize and reproduce this Korean-American fusion of flavors?
