    Budae Jjigae is a Korean fusion stew that incorporates processed, canned or other popular food in America, such as spam, hot dog and cheese. Budae Jjigae is “army stew” in Korean, getting its name because of its popularity at the US military bases in Korea during the Korean War as food was scarce. Due to the surplus of canned foods and the ease of making this dish, it easily became a staple. It’s also a great dish to make for a large group so no surprise it flourished!
