#3303: Chil Kab Farm Products Spicy Sujebi – Seafood Flavor – South Korea

#3303: Chil Kab Farm Products Spicy Sujebi - Seafood Flavor - South Korea

Found this one yesterday at Boo Han Market in Edmonds, Washington. So it had a sticker on the side which pulled a bit off but I can still make out the cooking instructions from what’s left. The sticker mentioned ‘Korean pasta’ which I found compelling. This is sujebi – let’s see what Wikipedia has to say –

Sujebi[1] (수제비, in S. Korea), ttŭdŏ-guk (뜨더국, in N. Korea), or hand-pulled dough soup[1], or Korean-Style Pasta Soup, is a Korean traditional soup consisting of dough flakes roughly torn by hand, with various vegetables. The flavor and recipe resemble kalguksu, except that the latter is made with noodles rather than wheat flakes. It is commonly considered a dish to consume on rainy days, along with bindaetteok.

The broth for sujebi is usually made with dried anchoviesshellfish, and kelp. In order to obtain a rich, umami flavor, the ingredients should be simmered for many hours. Added to this broth are soft noodles and various vegetables or kimchi, most often zucchini and potatoes.

Korean people began to eat sujebi and guksu (국수 noodles), both dishes made of wheat flour, from the early Goryeo period (935~1392), but the name sujebi (earlier sujeop-eo) dates from the mid Joseon periodSujeop-eo is a combined hanja word comprising the terms su (hanja: ; hangul: 수; literally “hand”) and jeop (hanja: ; hangul: 접어 or 접다; literally “folded” or “folding”).

From the Joseon period, people started making various types of sujeobi according to various purposes. Sujebi is today considered a typical commoner’s food, but in the past, it was relatively rare and used for special occasions especially janchi (잔치; feast, banquet) such as dol janchi (the celebration of a baby’s first birthday).

In North Koreasujebi is called milgaru ddeudeo guk (밀가루뜨더국), which is the words comprising three words: milgaru (밀가루; literally “wheat flour”) + ddeudeo (뜯어; literally “tearing” or “torn”) guk (국; literally “soup”).

The names of sujebi vary according to regions in Korea. [2]

This sounds really interesting. The package mentions this is a seafood flavor and shows some shrimp there. Let’s give it a go!

Here’s a pouch of the pasta.

A wet sachet.

Finished (click to enlarge). Pasta reminded me of shells in a way. They were definitely chewier and pretty good mouthfeel. Broth was spicy with a very strong shellfish taste to it. Vegeteables were oft found and of interesting character. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8801759016616.

Meet The Manufacturer: Product Samples From Hakubaku USA (2 of 2)

This is the second box of samples from Hakubaku USA. I want to say that I have really fallen in love with one of these products – the Mochi Barley. No, it’s not ramen. But it’s become a big part of my diet lately and it’s really good! Breaking away from the standard way I just focus on ramen, I’ll do a special review of it as well as I’ve been eating it almost daily for a couple of weeks now.

Got a box this time from A-sha of Taiwan. They have a lot of different products, but this one is very different. The company is known as a maker of dry noodle products, hence usually no broth. But this looks to have broth – let’s give it a close look.
