SPAM® Budae Jjigae (Korean Military Soup) Recipe


Hi AMW Friends

I was invited to create some short recipes with SPAM® recently and I will be sharing them here as well because I was really SHOOKT on how delicious these dishes turn out to be —- and easy-to-make!

This whole dish went straight to me and my husband’s tummy on that same day —- no leftovers!

Here’s a different way to enjoy your instant noodles while you enjoy your favorite K-Drama!  So, is it Hometown Cha Cha Cha or Squid Game?
