November's ChefButler Box Update

A few days ago I post my review for ChefButler Supscription box.
November's box was Korean. I have never made Korean food and I admit I don't think I have ever had Korean food so I was scared of making these.

I made the Sujeonggwa (cinnamon and ginger punch) yesterday instead of when I made the other recipes because I didn't have any ginger root .  
It was ok but I have never really been a big fan of ginger.Maybe if you like ginger you may like it but personally this just isn't for me.

Pajeon (Scallion Pancakes) 

For some reason I can barely ever get pancakes cooked right and it isn't usually a big deal since I never liked pancakes anyways but I admit I really liked these even though this one just didn't want to cook properly but it was good anyways.

This is the dipping sauce for the scallion pancakes and I actually had to put a little less pepper flakes because this sauce was hot but it is so good with the scallion pancakes.  We really liked it.

My husband liked the Bibimbap and I would have liked it if it weren't for the bean sprouts. I had never had bean sprouts before and i found out I don't like it. I changed things up a little bit with this recipe and because I love mushrooms I cut some of the mushrooms a bit bigger than the recipe called for. For the Bibimbap my husband helped out making it . 

The scallion pancakes and the dipping sauce do take take long to make. The  Cinnamon and ginger punch takes a little over 30 minutes but the Bibimbap took over an hour.

What I really like about ChefButler is that I got to try foods I have never had before and it got me a little bit more creative with the meal. I am not a great cook but the extra instructions helped a lot.

I am so happy that I got the chance to try out ChefButler and I got to try some Korean food.

If you love trying new foods this is a fantastic monthly box to get.  I think I might subscribe to it in the near future because I want to try different foods and recipes instead of always the same ones I use all the time.

The subscription box costs  $35/month for a box every month or $17.50/month for boxes every other month. If you use promo code GEEKYGIRLREVIEWS” you will get 50% off the first month of your subscription.
