Korean food craving. - Narcissism is Necessary

Korean food craving.

Everybody has phases when it comes to food, myself included. For the past few weeks I have been craving for Korean food.

I just love that wholesome, spicy, sour tastes. Very titillating to palate.

Naturally it got me interested in actually whipping up a few Korean dishes. And so I did….

# – Bibimbap.

My bibimbap has seasoned bean sprouts, seasoned shitake, seasoned cucumber, seasoned spinach and beef bulgogi. All topped off with a sunny side up.

To eat, mix everything up with a spoonful of Korean pepper paste or gochujang.

Learnt a new trick while researching for recipes, to marinade beef with kiwi fruit and a splash of diet coke….my cheap cut of beef was nice and tender after only an hour marinating!

Hubs was very pleased :)

My next goal is to make dol sot bibimbap, but first I need to buy those cute Korean claypots.

For our next dinner I still wanted to eat Korean food so I made it happened.

# – Homemade Korean dishes.

I made scallion pancake with dipping sauce, kimchi jigae with streaky bacon instead of pork belly, seasoned tofu, seasoned shitake (which I sautéed with some bacon bits for good measure lol) and seasoned cucumbers again (love this). Pretty pleased with myself.

As usual I cooked too much food for two T-T Really need to learn to control portioning or have children.

I think I have enough of Korean food for now.

    Hi Kim,
