How To Make A Bulgogi Cheese Waffle Sandwich

Doing waffles as the base to a sandwich is already a dope move. Make those waffles into kimchi cheese waffles, or “chaffles,” and you’re in for a savory, cheesy, oozy sandwich experience.

Foodbeast friend and chef Cody Storts made these waffles when he stopped into the Foodbeast Kitchen a while back for a cooking stream on Twitch. His full creation? The Ribeye Bulgogi Chaffle Sandwich, featured bulgogi-marinated ribeye steak, kimchi slaw, gochujang mayo, and the aforementioned cheese waffles.

While there’s flavor packed into every component through kimchi, gochujang, and more, the star is definitely those cheese waffles that crown the outside. Together with the sweet, savory ribeye and the freshness of the kimchi, you get one epic sandwich that’s as messy as it is delicious.

The recipe to make the Ribeye Bulgogi Chaffle Sandwich is below for those who wish to make their own version.

Ingredients

Chaffles

  • 1 16 oz package of mozzarella cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup finely chopped kimchi
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Bulgogi Ribeye

  • 2 12 oz ribeye steaks
  • 1 cup Korean soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon gochugaru
  • 1 cup roughly chopped green onion

Kimchi Slaw

  • 2 cups thinly sliced cabbage
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrot
  • 1 cup roughly chopped kimchi
  • 1 cup green onion
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Gochujang Mayo

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Gochugaru (Korean chili powder) for garnishing
  • Sesame seeds for garnishing

Steps

  1. Marinate your steaks in all of the marinade ingredients for at least 20 minutes, or overnight.
  2. Remove excess marinade from the steaks and sear on high heat in a frying pan with sesame oil. Cook to medium-rare, then let rest.
  3. Combine your cabbage, carrot, kimchi, green onion, sugar, sesame oil, and rice wine vinegar to make your slaw. Season to taste.
  4. Combine your mayo, gochujang, a tablespoon of gochugaru, and sugar. Add the zest and juice from your lime, and mix well. Season to taste. 
  5. Preheat the waffle iron and grease it. Mix together chopped kimchi, shredded mozzarella, and eggs to make your cheese waffle mix. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Fill the waffle iron with your mixture, and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. You’ll need to do this twice to get two waffles.
  7. Add one cup of your steak marinade to a pan, and bring to a boil so it reduces to a glaze. Slice your ribeye and toss it through the cooked glaze.
  8. Assemble your sandwich: start with a cheese waffle base, then add your steak, the kimchi slaw, the gochujang mayo, and a sprinkle of gochugaru and sesame seeds on top. Crown with your final waffle, and dig in!

5 Instagram-Worthy Foods In Westside Costa Mesa

Tucked just above the beautiful shores of Newport and Huntington Beach is one of Orange County’s oldest and most historic cities — Costa Mesa.

Costa Mesa also happens to be the local Chomping Ground of our friend and popular Instagram foodie, @Dradevsfood.

Join us as we take a ride with Drade to see how he spends his time cruising through local eats within Costa Mesa’s vibrant and ever-expanding food scene.

First stop, Wild Goose Tavern, which is known for a robust list of signature cocktails, gourmet burgers and a super laid back vibe. Drade highly recommends the caprese burger, a juicy burger stacked with a thick slice of fried mozzarella, cilantro chimichurri, and garlic aioli.     

Don’t forget a Wild Goose Sour to go along with your burger, though. This fresh take on the classic whiskey sour – made with Basil Hayden’s, angostura bitters, egg white, and lemon – is not to be missed.

Donuts, anyone? If you’re in Costa Mesa, Sidecar Doughnuts is a must-see for any level of donut lover. Sidecar has been supplying the Orange County scene with delicious, colorful and seasonal donuts for years.

If there’s a must-have at Sidecar, it has to be the Eggs Benedict Donut — made with a poached egg, Benton’s ham, and infused with a homemade basil hollandaise.   

Now it’s time for a steak dinner at Boathouse Collective. One of the most popular plates is the off-the-menu – but always available – 20 oz. ribeye served with yakimo, a.k.a. Japanese sweet potato, and miso butter.

This perfectly cooked, juicy steak is packed with flavor, and the miso butter provides the perfect depth to the dish.

One of the greatest things about Costa Mesa’s proximity to the ocean is the access to super fresh, super delicious seafood at all times. If you’re in the mood, there’s no better spot to check out than Catalina Fish Kitchen.

While there’s plenty to choose from, do yourself a favor and go with the LSB Burrito stuffed with Lobster, Shrimp and Bacon. This surf and turf burrito is smothered in a homemade gumbo sauce (per request) and is a surefire way to make all your Instagram followers jealous.  

For some lighter fare, Oak & Coal is your go-to spot for some Kimchi Dumplings. These perfectly handcrafted dumplings are stuffed with chicken and pork and will become an instant favorite.

Thanks for showing us around, Drade! Make sure to visit https://www.travelcostamesa.com/eatcation/ to learn more about the foodie scene in Costa Mesa.
