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.
