Donkas Deopbap: Korean Pork Cutlet and Rice Bowl

Tom Tom & Big John Stud’s Continuing Food Adventures: 돼지국밥

It’s once again time for myself and Tom Gates of The Red Dragon Diaries to wow you, inform you and make you hungry as we explore another of Busan’s great culinary cuisines. This weekend, we headed to Seomyeon for 돼지국밥, also known as Dweji Gukbap, also also known as Pork, Soup, Rice. I also enjoyed the dweji variant known as 순대국밥, Soondae Gukbap, or pork blood sausage. Sound enticing?! Check out the video of our gastronomic adventure.

Eating 해장국, ‘Hangover Soup,’ While Sober

Tom Gates of The Red Dragon Diaries and I are joined in our second food video collaboration (check out the first one, LIVE OCTOPUS, here) by our good friend, the lovely and talented Jookyeong, for a lovely meal of Haejang Guk, also known as “Hangover Soup.” It’s definitely not just for eating after a night of hard drinking!

Out for a delicious 삼겹살 (samgyeopsal) dinner. It’s pork, cut thinly (but thicker than bacon). I never used to like it very much, but I’ve developed a whole new appreciation for it recently.

Guest Post: Asian Meatballs over Sesame Soy Noodles

Hi Ovenless Cheffies. My name is Kristen Ramirez and I'm from the great
state of Texas. Lindsey has granted me the privilege of being a guest author on her blog for her ovenless foodies. I am a mom of 2 beautiful girls and stay at home right now, but in my pre-child life, I was a professionally trained chef. I don't get paid to cook anymore, but someday soon again I will. Lindsey asked me to create something for her followers and after much thought on what is available overseas, I came up with a play on spaghetti and meatballs Asian style. Sesame and soy noodles, colorful veggies, and gingery, garlic meatballs.

Asian Style Meatballs over Sesame Soy Noodles

For the Meatballs:

1 lb ground pork
6 garlic cloves
1 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger

1/4 tsp pepper
1 Tbs ketchup
