My husband LOVES spicy asian dishes, so it wasn't a surprise when a friend asked me for a good Korean dish. We double the Chili paste and Pepper flakes at my house... The red potatoes add a mild sweetness to counteract the hot spices, but you can use regular potatoes, too

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe will turn your entire family into the Clean Plate Club! Carefully adjust the amount of red pepper flakes and chili pepper paste in order to manage the heat level. A little of each goes a long way, so go very light if you prefer your dishes on the mild side. The Test Kitchen
