Ddeok Guk

The Ggori Story – an allegory of self-reliance and self-pity in a pot of oxtail stock.

Still sick, I made myself another comfort dish to make myself feel better, using the oxtail stock and meat that I had made myself to make myself feel better – at once a successful and sorrowful endeavor.


More goodies for W from the Ajumma Network: stir-fried spicy octopus with pan-fried tofu – I am both proud of the outcome and indignant that I had to make it.
