Why when you eat some kimchi jjigae taste so good. I believe 2 main ingredients that make it outstanding is Broth/stock and kimchi. Broth can be many kind. Chicken, fish, pork and others. Up to you to add in. If you do not have, just add in more kimchi!

Gojuchang – is another important ingredient. That depends on you as they have a few flavours out there. Mine is Spicy gojuchang and there are 2 brands if not mistaken.
