I’ve got a fee-va! Not for cowbell, but for my favorite Korean dish: bibimbap. Oh, my goodness, but that stuff is good. In Korean households, the dish is many times prepared from leftovers, so it is an economical dish. UNLESS you get it at a Korean restaurant. Then it’ll cost you a pretty penny. They have a pretty good version at Koreana; I’ve never tried it at Korea House out my way. The best bibimbap I’ve ever had is at a small storefront Korean restaurant in Ft Walton Beach, Florida called “Okee-Dokee”. (Yes, they have Karaoke…)
Anyway, I’d like to make some for Lintilla for her upcoming birthday. (The kids won’t touch it, so I’ll have to make them bulgogi that night). To do that, I need the stone pots to cook it in. This is what makes the dish soooooo wonderful – the bottom is lined with rice, and as the dish cooks, the “outside” rice gets crunchy and brown. My mouth is watering thinking about it. You pour hot chili sauce (well, I do) over the whole thing and eat up, Yummm!
So, my mission this week is to find two “dolsots” (stone pots) , and get them to my house before June 12. Anybody know where one can buy Korean cookware (in English)?
