Kids Friendly Korean Banchan Braised Quail Egg

If you had watch KDrama “Its OK not to be OK” on Netflix, this is the Korean banchan / side dish that Ko Moon-young loves with her rice. The drama made me want to try these braised quail eggs too!

It is also hard to find kids-friendly Korean side dishes which my kids will enjoy. I made these braised quail eggs the non spicy way as my youngest girl is still not very good with spicy food.

I use precooked quail eggs that comes in a packet (or sometimes in cans) as they save me so much time. You should be able to find them in your supermarkets too.
