Okay folks – here’s something I’ve never seen before. This is bajirak kalgugsu. I’ve had kalgugsu before, but this has a special ingredient: actual clams in shells! Here we go!
The back of the package (click to enlarge). I spent a while trying to figure out how to cook this stuff; watched videos on how to steam clams, etc. Well, after I opened the vacuum pack of clams, I knew they were precooked. Everything in the boil for six minutes. Simple!
The noodle block – flat and broad looking noodles.
Light in color and a very fine powder.
The vegetable packet.
Look at that! The little clam pack!
As you can see, they’re already open and precooked. I’ve never steamed clams before and I was quite pensive about the idea of doing so. Thankfully, I don’t have to.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sweet onion and green onion. The noodles are broad and thick. Pretty good! The broth is light and has a nice clam flavor. The dehydrated bits came out nicely. The clams from the vacuum pack: perfectly cooked and good quality. This is really neat stuff! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8801073111080.
