Kimchee Jigae is one of my favorites. I made some a while back, but it was only ok. I think the kimchee that I bought was too freshly made. I think the next time I make it I'll buy some kimchee and let it sit for a month or so to let it get nice & funky.

very true... the key is a very "nice & funky" kimchee and the samgyopsal pork is heavenly too.

won, as much as i'm a ramen lover, i'm gonna have to say to the ramen on this one. don't want to confuse the jigae... LOL. but i don't mind ramen in budae jigae or dukpoki.

Ramen in "boo-dae-chi-ge"

Did you know that the name's literal translation is "military-base casserole", because they used to get all the Spam and other processed meat from G.I.'s stationed locally.

It is also know as "Johnson-tang". I guess Johnson was the main supplier.

I had a Dutch Oven before leaving for college. Then, with all the moving around to Atlanta for school, back home to a house I rented temporally, then to a town home I owned for a few months, then into a house I purchased....... the oven got abused. It basically stayed packed in boxes, and eventually rusted to the point where I just wrote it off as a loss.

But, on this weekends wheeling/camping trip, someone had a Dutch Oven. He made two meals with it, both awesome. The first one was a breakfast meal; eggs, hash browns, sausage, and cheese. The second meal was dinner; pork chops, onion, potatoes, and a creamy sauce. These two meals came out looking like something you would expect from a High School lunch room, but they actually tasted good. The pork chops were so tender, you could eat them with a fork.

I always liked cooking ribs in my Dutch Oven. Basically boil them in pineapple juice with some spice and peppers thrown in. The pineapple helps to break down the meat, and the slow cooking made them really tender - even with beef ribs. After about 2 hours in the oven, toss them onto a smoker or grill to finish them off.

Any of you use a Dutch Oven for cooking?

Dutch ovens are great for camp cooking. One of the dishes at the last ICS was pork and hominy stew. http://www.expeditionexchange.com/ics5/ He made corn bread as well in a dutch oven. The dish was amazing for trail food. I love it when someone takes a tough cut of meat and turns it into something amazing. That takes skill. Things are easier with the more spendy cuts of meat. If you have a tenderloin, the meat is the entire dish and only requires the cook not screw it up.

On the rib subject, I usually hate ribs that have been cooked in any type of liquid. They end up being gummy and mushy. Sure they tender, but are they good? I prefer to use just a little bit of dry rub and smoke them with hickory at 225 F for 5 hours or so. The great thing about smoking them over low temp is that the long cooking time allows them to become tender, but not mushy. The smoked ribs also taste like pork.

I bought a nice dutch oven for my brother a while back and he left it at home on his last trip out to UT. You can lead a horse to water, but can't make him drink.

I heard about this on NPR this morning: http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_6111188

Apparently in Hawaii both McDonalds and Burger King serve Spam.

I'll add to this discussion that Spam is prevalent in the Japanese-American community as well. Growing up I probably had a fried Spam sandwich or a Spam-egg-rice dinner at least once a week.

When I was a kid we didn't have spam. I don't know when I first heard of it but I could have easily been in High school.

What we had was like the fresh equivalent of it which was called "Jumbo". It was made by the butcher in the meat department.

It looked something like this canned Ham.

Doing research on it now I cant find a thing about it. I'll have to call home and get the scoop on it maybe its out of existence now that spam is prevalent.

I hope you sat facing the sun so you could wear your D&G shades and had a smoothie and a half a pack of Parliments with that.

Come on man... I'm a Persol guy, there Lemonade is the only drink worth getting and what is it with those fucking Parliments?

In all actuality, that has to be the best place in L.A. for checking out the talent and when I have the time to kill, there aren't much better places ... Unfortunately, I mainly get my food delivered...

Ok, so there is no picture of the prepared meal, but here's a picture of the package of some ramen I had today for lunch. This was by far the best package of noodles I've ever had. These weren't the typical machine made noodles that come in most packaged ramen. These were together in an amorphous mass as opposed to the perfectly oriented noodles. The texture of the noodles was much better than I expected. The broth was very tasty and didn't have that bouillon taste.

yakatori on the trail might be the best thing since shabu shabu on the trail.

Love it. Big, greasy, messy burger, and a diet drink.

Does he do his own nails?
