To Feel Real Korea with Traditional Food : Soon Dae Guk Bab

in food •  4 months ago

Each country has it’s own characteristic food. Sometimes it is amazing when I find out the ways of cooking with one material.

In this posting, I’d like to introduce the Soon Dae Guk Bab. This food is made with the intestines of pork.

In Europe, the sausage might be a representative food made with Pork.

I don’t know why making sausage was not developed in korea.
In Korea a boiling skill was developed specially in comparing to other area.

There are so many boiling foods in Korea, and this time I’d like to post the Soon Dae Guk Bab

I had been riding around the Byeong Cheon city located in Middle area of Korea not far from my office. I dropped by the Byrong Cheon Area to taste the Soon Dae Gook Bad which was a representative food in this area.

This food was originated for the tradesmen in this area. It was said that there was a big market place. So people came here early to buy goods and left to sell. They needed cheap and nutritious food. The intestines of pork was considered as a proper for them.

The intestines of pork was widely used in Korea. But there existed some differences between South and North. The Cheon Soon Dae Guk Bab is the representative in Southern Area. Actually Soon Dae was more famous in Northern Area.

But unfortunately we can not get to the North Korea due to the political reasons. As you know, North Korea is the most notorious closed country. If you want to taste the original Soon Dae Guk Bab, you would bet your life instead.

During Korean War, many people came into South Korea as the refuges. So you could taste the North Korean Soon Die. But many people came from north told me that the taste was not as exactly same as that of north area. But when I have a chance to taste North Korea Soon Dae Guk Bab, I will post.

Beong Cheon Soon Dae Guk Bab was served as below.

They put rice and blood with some spices into the intestines and cooked.

They served a soup. The secret of this food was the soup. It is not easy to make that soup.
They have boiled the bones for 24 hours to get the white soup.

Of course there are more materials put in the soup while boiling.

You need to put the ground perilla seeds in the soup.

The shrimp sauce was a essential for the Pork in Korea.

It was said that the shrimp salted sauce was inevitable to have the pork to prevent the problems.

It tasted really nice.

There were full of people in the restaurant.

I’ like recommend the Soon Dae Guk Bab to feel real Korea when you visit Korea.

But one thing you need to mind is sitting position, for some one it could be a torture sitting crossing two legs.

If you ever come over to Korea and get this dish, be sure to ask for a portion with extra liver. You can say "Kan man ju sae yo". It'll make it even better!

thank you for reading

서민적인 음식도 즐기시네요
막걸리 한잔 하면 딱입니다.
스팀이 많이 오르네요
개인정보에 신경쓰셔야 될것 같습니다.

I trust u for the taste , but the sight is not appealing at all lol.

·

Nah man you don't even know. I'm an American over in a korea for a business trip this week and I just had some sundae guk 순대국 at a famous restaurant in Gyeonggi Icheon (경기도 이천시). Really crazy good food over here.

You gotta get past the sight and trust that it'll be delicious. It's just gonna turn to mush in your stomach so it doesn't really matter how it looks does it?

·
·

Icheon ?
I didn't heard of that, I wil find and taste it.
Thank you

·

That's right.
Sometimes looking good was not so taste in my experience

that looks very tasty

Korea traditional eating is good, in mactan Cebu Philippines Korean people are building restaurant business corporate or non corporate I work their for 8 months but I wonder why they did not made this menu here in Philippines.

I'd try alot of Korean food, specially their delicious appetizer, dongte tang is my favorite dish :)

·

It needs a special skill to make that kinds of traditional food which is absolutely secret.

·
·

oww..that kind of food are exciting to eat, wish I could explore and taste that kind of special food.

i love philiphins

·

You do?
I do.

My life philosophy is that foods are the source to get the love spread. Experiencing food from the different culture and being respectful of their creation is the best way to kickstart your interest toward cultural interest and be more acceptance in life.

I absolutely love and extremely impressed of the way that you're flexible and adaptive towards many cultures and being adventurous to try new things. This is definitely inspiring and motivated me to expand my travels and hopefully to Korea one day too! Btw, I am a food and travel blogger. If you like, you can check me out for food or any travel ideas.

gotta get some of that kim chi and eat it with kim

Interesante informacion!! Gracias por compartirlo @slowwalker.

·

thank you

Sounds gross but looks really really good, I've gotta make a trip to Korea someday. What is your favorite food there?

You are so adept at bringing cultural education through food and tidbits of local tradition. Wonderful. I have to say your pictures make it look appetizing but this particular dish looks too difficult to reproduce. Just have to get to Korea for the real thing!

Restaurant full of people is the best recommendation that food is good in this place :)

Thank you for sharing this food very nice personally i like that carry on your life

wow, amazing. it looking yummy.yes, you are right, every country has its own way and techniques of cooking foods. in our country, i like the rice too much. and we using vegetables and beefs in our dashes too much.

One of my friend and he asked me to send names of some places where there is Halal food.

i like tradisional foods :)

yes this is the difference of our typical food ... I really like the same rendang duck

Looks delicious! ... At first I thought in the second picture on the left side I had spotted some tofu, but now I think it must be something else ... :)

@slowwalker nim, I hope you're having a Happy 2018

among all the Korean food this is one I wouldn't even dare touching
cause of the blood, I don't eat anything with blood in it because in Science some studies claim that the animals know they'll be put to death so they sort of panic before they even get butchered specially pigs, thisis with pig's blood isn't it? Once the animal panics it sends toxin to its blood that's what I was taught in the University so I'd never eat that because of the possibility of eating toxin but I could imagine that it must taste good cause a friend of mine could finish a platter full of that

·

I didn't know that before. Thank you.
Anyway I like it

·
·

it's alright @slowwalker nim
I'm trying to reach you in the chat but I guess you're not staying there?

Cool food I must try this :))

·

You have to, lol

·
·

Yes... :))

damn I would love to try that dish!!!

more and more of my fellow Filipinos are getting familiar with Korean food. The food is simply tasteful and deliciously healthy. oh I love Kimchi. Thanks for sharing it for us.

·

thank you so much

Oh Man. I've got to go back to Korea! That soup used to be my favorite! More than ten years later and I still get the most intense cravings for kim-chi from time to time! Great post my steemit friend!

·

Hahaha
thank you for your comment.
Let's enjoy our lives

Damn, interesting idea! Haven't seen anything like this before. Absolutely LOVING Korean food lately. Looks yummy!

So delicious good photos

·

thank you

Great, now I am hungry:D I miss it so much! When I was younger I didn't really like it, but now i love to dip it in this pink salty thing! So Yummy!

I just posted a Korean food blog as well. It is by far one of my fave cuisine

·

I have tasted many Korean dishes, and I love them. However I've never tasted intestines before, I'm a little scared. I love the korean tradition of removing shoes though. Keeps places clean. Very nice post.

We call that blood sausage here. A bit different but I guess in a way very similar.

ohh they look so delicious !Mom, I need to show this food. :))) Thanks for sharing my friend ! @slowwalker

·

Thank you so much for visiting

·
·

You're welcome sir ! I guess today is not my lucky day. :)) But I follow you with pleasure.. @slowwalker

very good post friends. and your food looks very good.
I have a friend. if you have time please visit to my blog and comment if there is a mistake

·

thank you

·
·

Maybe you should try to travel here in the pilippines and try to eat out the food you never ate before. Feel the ambiance of the nature and the presence of pilipino esp. The way they treat you as a family not a foreign :)

This looks interesting. In Austria, we also have a dish that is made of blood - but then we add meat, bacon, and white bread and make a sausage out of it. (We even call it blood sausage.)

Thanks for teaching us about Korean cuisine! I've never had Korean food before so I'm looking forward to more posts :-)

·

thank you so much for your comment.
I founded out there were similar cousin in Austria from you

Woow! Awesome post!
Well I'm new in here and I post amazing pictures about yoga because that's my passion! I follow you! kisses <3

·

Wow
You are amazing

The first picture in your post looks so delicious I'm sure it's very tasty. As always you have my support. @mannyfig1956

·

Yes, Is amazing.
I guarantee it

Se ve atractivo ese plato y mas que a mi me gusta el chorizo así le decimos en mi Pais y si tiene el toquesito buenisimo.

I am interested to learn about Korean food because my dear daughter in law is from Korea. We Texans don't usually eat things boiled; we like fried foods. People used to eat a lot of pig intestines here, but they fried it.

·

Im from Texas and I love boiled food!! Haha

·
·

@normalbro No way! What boiled food do you like? The only things I can think of are boiled greens, and dumplings - Yum I love both of those. Hey, I think I like boiled food too! But I have to tell you, my son-in-law is Burmese, and the last boiled food I saw was at a party at his house - squares of boiled pig skin. Pig skin, my friend. They coulda fried it. But no. Boiled.

·
·
·

Haha I was actually gonna say boiled greens. But it wasnt until I came korea then I started eating alot of boiled meat, boiled chicken etc. As for fried pig skins.... I never was and I never will be a fan

·
·
·
·

Chicharrones, baby! Yum, yum. LOL. But I need to get used to more boiled food, so I can enjoy my visit to Korea better. I think I will get healthier and skinnier if I can eat their way for a little while.

·

I heard that the boiled food is better than the fried in health

·
·

I'm pretty sure it is. We Texans are notorious for being fat and relatively unhealthy. When my grandparents were working on the farm from sunup to sundown, they needed the extra calories. But now, we eat the same way but work a lot less! My granny's favorite meal was fatback, breaded and fried. Now that is some high-energy food! And it fueled a whole lot of heavy labor!

interesting and good foods. I trust u for the taste

·

absolutely

Wow this looks great! Always into learning about new food cultures. If I ever go to Korea I will know what to get!

·

You will like it.
I swear

看起来真的很好吃,挺喜欢的美食,不知道什么时候能吃到

yaaas one of my favorite korean dishes

·

It's cool how the Koreans fix food. Like other distinct ethnic/racial groups, they have their own distinct dishes and customs. It's fascinating to me to see this - especially like a highly intelligent people like Koreans.

Thanks for sharing this unique food/dish. Eye-opening !
What is the meaning of Soon Dae Guk Bab ?

99/100 Americans would not try this! I'd try it - but there'd be no guarantees I'd like it. Thanks for sharing!

mmm, this food color look dirty...but i would still like to try

wow, sounds delicious dear. I hope i can taste it haha

Nice article again from you slowwalker and thanks for showing a little bit of your journey to Korea :)

·

thank you

Next time I'm in Los Angeles, I going look for Soon Dae Gun BaB in Korea Town. Thanks for sharing!

i like kimchi the best 😆

·

I like kimchi and other Korean cuisine dishes but I have never heard of this..
This foodie is sure up for the challenge though. Thank you for putting it on my radar.
follow me!

Thanks for the post, I'm interested. Follow you =)
