Anchovies Recipe and New Korean Butchery

New Korean butchery opened near Beauty World MRT ! New gem found for quality meat Korean home bbq ! My hubs is very fussy…he doesn’t really like those frozen meats we got from NTUC for BBQ. He prefers fresh and quality ones. So sometimes i will have to check Cold storage to see the waygu beef or pork got discount or not. Sometimes 1 slab of waygu beef cost about $20 and just nice for 2 of us to pair with bbq mushrooms and bean paste stew etc.

Seoul Butchery is located along Yuk Tong Avenue. I got to know about this butchery after i went to Oppa’s Korean friend’s house for BBQ. K&J butchery moved to Martin road which is abit out of the way for me. So now i get my meats from Seoul Butchery ! They do sell home made side dishes , korean sauces and all the things you need for Korean bbq so it is actually convenient and one stop for everything..Price point also slightly cheaper than K&J. But because it is just newly opened , the variety not alot yet lah. The boss told me they just opened for less than a month ( when i went in July )…he said there will be more variety of meats and groceries in August.

Weather was very hot and hubs does not want to use the electric pan to bbq at the balcony so we bbq the pork belly i bought from Seoul Butchery over the stove using a frying pan instead.

Hubs love the new tofu recipe i cooked. I was watching the variety show “Dinner with Me” and saw this Korean nutritionist ajumma fried tofu over perilla seed oil. So i tried it and it was sooo yummy. Very simple to cook, yummy and healthy !

Just oil the pan with perilla oil and add in sliced tofu ! Fry till golden brown and you can serve as a main dish or side dish. Hubs love it so much and asked me to buy more tofu and cook often. When i go out for evening appt and unable to cook , he will cook this dish himself and eat together with other side dishes.

Very easy to cook and make the anchovies side dish !

You can do at home and save $$ and no need to go out to buy them.
1 small box cost about $8 and it is not worth it because it is so easy to make at home.

Ingredients ?

Anchovies ( preferably medium size ones )

Minced garlic

Cut red chilli padi (optional)

Anchovies

Korean Soy Sauce

2 spoon of Sugar

2 to 3 spoon of Corn/Rice syrup

How to cook ?

Oil the frying pan and add a spoonful of minced garlic and fry

Add in the anchovies and keep stir frying so that they will not get burnt. They get burnt easily so you need to keep flipping them over medium heat.

Add cut chilli padi (optional).

Add soy sauce (Slowly add to taste. Some people prefer more salty ones then you can add more). I usually add about 4 spoon because the anchovies itself is already salty.

Add the sugar and corn syrup and continue stir fry.

If you realized you added too much soy sauce and it is too salty , just add more sugar.

Once done , let it cool in a tupperware before you put in the fridge. Once it cooled , it will become slightly sticky like those you saw in Korean restaurants. The rice syrup will harden and become sticky once cooled. So don’t put too much else your anchovies side dish will all stick together like nougat lol .

I add the soy sauce amount based on estimation and depending on the type of anchovies i bought and my hubs like it more salty. So usually i add about 4 spoon of soya sauce.

Very easy to make hor..took me about 10 mins to prep it and i can keep in the fridge and eat over 10 days.
