Welcome.

We document our adventures in travel, food, and design, and share stories about the people and communities we encounter along the way. 

Now full-time travelers, we've always been slightly nomadic and consider 'home' anywhere that includes us and our rescue dog, Lemon. We hit the road this year to discover, explore, and build community.

IP Pork Dish #2: Bibimbop

IP Pork Dish #2: Bibimbop

While similar in ingredients to the Korean Pork Lettuce Wraps, assembly is slightly different and there are a few additions.  I LOVE Bibimbop and find this recipe to be a strong imitation of the one I used to get down the street in Philly.

What you need:

  • Cooked pork (about an ounce per person, but adjust as you please)
  • Cooked rice
  • Gochujang sauce
  • Kimchi
  • Sauteed mushrooms
  • Cooked zucchini
  • Eggs (1 per serving)
  • Cilantro and scallions

This was a great lunch because the only additional I needed from the previous meal were the mushrooms and the zucchini.  Overcrowded my zucchini pan – don’t be like me.  I am lazy, remember?

To assemble:
Rice to cover the bottom of the bowl, and then the other ingredients (except sauce, egg, and herbage) sectioned on the top, almost like a little buffet on top of the rice.  Then fry one egg per dish and top, then cover in sauce, cilantro, and scallions.

If I worked in the office and were taking this in, I would pack the ingredients all together except the egg and sauce.  Pack the sauce in a little baggie so it doesn’t get soggy, and either forego the egg or scramble it up and toss it with the other toppings.
