Is it just me or is Korean food trending, now? It’s hard to tell sometimes because when I crave sumpin’, I seem to see it everywhere! I’m blaming Momofuku. I keep hearing so much about the restaurants and books and owner/chef David Chang. And of course, I’m talking here, in the US, not in Korea where I assume Korean food is always trending! I hope I’m going to add to that trend with this marvelous Bulgogi Korean Beef.
What happens when a lentil/yogurt/kale and green smoothie person stays on to help out her solidly Midwestern parents? Things like this, I’m afraid! This is one gorgeous pork roast from Chef David Chang of Momofuku. Momofukus Bo Ssam is crazy good. Served with rice, two simple sauces, and lettuce for wrapping, along with a few, simple accompaniments, this is absolutely one insane dinner.
Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. I love that show but haven’t seen it since I chopped my cable. Featured on one episode was Opal Thai’s Pork Larb made by Chef Opel (Opal Thai Food) on the episode All Family, All the Time. I was completely enamored – and Guy Fieri? There’s very little that shuts him up (I’m kinda the same way) but this dish did! 🙂 He was just about speechless.
