 Dweji Bulgogi

Dweji bulgogi is a Korean pork dish.  Sliced pork (“dweji = pig”), marinated in gochujang (red chili paste).  Traditionally grilled (“bulgogi = fire meat”), but more commonly stir-fried, especially at home.  For reasons unknown, the pork version is spicy, while beef bulgogi is made with a sweet soy sauce marinade, even though both pork galbi and beef galbi are made with a similar sweet soy sauce marinade, but chicken galbi is spicy, for reasons unknown.  Essentially the same thing as jeyuk bokkeum (pork stir-fry), except the latter tends to have more sauce, and more vegetables (see for comparison 6.141 Bon Jovi on Fire).

W’s rendition tonight was solid.

Sogeum Gui Saewoo (0.5) : supposed to be roasted (gui) on a bed of dry salt (sogeum), but W mistakenly immersed the shrimp (saewoo) in the salt, then covered the pan with a lid, which created steam, which dissolved the salt, which penetrated into the shrimp, which therefore turned out unbearably salty — but at least she’s trying something new.

Jogae Guk (0.0) : clams, or at some of the clams, were off, so we dumped the whole batch — but at least she’s trying something new.
