Video: How to make Gaeran Jjim (Korean steamed egg casserole)
This video will show a simple way to make 계란찜 gyeran/gaeran jjim (Korean steamed egg casserole). The written version with pictures can be found at Kfoodaddict.com.
There's no bad time to eat Korean food, but gaeran jjim is particularly good for a quick, protein-packed breakfast.
It's also a good meal to make if you've just recovered from a serious stomach illness and you want to gently reintroduce your stomach to real food. Gaeran jjim is light and easy to digest yet nourishing with adequate protein.
Some Korean restaurants offer it as one of their gratis banchan (appetizers or side dishes). If a restaurant serves it, don't pass it up.
