It's not too tough, but tender and properly chewy. I put into my mouth this stir-fried dried squid on top of a spoon of steamy rice. And another spoon of rice follows right after that.
Korean cuisine normally consists of rice, soup, and banchan(side dishes) and you eat them as you make your own combinations. The stir-fried dried squid is one of the most well-known banchans in Korea. We season the body of squids and dry them. It's called Jinmichae. Since it's already seasoned, it already tastes good. You can either snack on it with peanuts when drinking beer or cook it and eat it as a banchan. When cooking, first, you need to make it soft and then stir-fry or season it with Gochujang-based sauce. It normally tastes sweet, salty and a little spicy.
