Mushu Hanwoo (with handmade pancakes)
by me (and Mom)
at the cabin
-Changchon, Seowon, Hoengseong, Gangwon, Republic of Korea-
with Mom & Dad
At the cabin to do some chores, at the behest of my mother. When I asked if anyone wanted to come, they all declined (“Thanks, but don’t really feel like doing chores this weekend.”).
For dinner, Mom made a big show of preparing ingredients for a Chinese spread. The centerpiece was mushu, made with top-grade hanwoo (Korean beef), featuring hand-made pancakes that she’s been working on. But after making the pancakes, she suddenly handed the rest to me, telling me to do the actual cooking.
