Dosirak No. 27 - an old one

on Tuesday, December 20, 2011
Hey everyone,

here is one I make quite often:
Kimbap with peas and berries. Recipes for the Korean "sushi rolls", Kimbap, can be found here, in an earlier blog post: Instead of meat, I put in smoked salmon. I just cooked the peas in salt water for 5 minutes and put in some berries, that's it.
Enjoy! :)

How to ... Bulgogi (불고기)

Hi everyone,

previously, I showed some Dosiraks containing Bulgogi (, which is marinated beef. Sometimes I marinate chicken, turkey or beef Bulgogi-style, too.

So first, buy some beef (for 4 people: 600 g), chop one big onion and 4 cloves of garlic. To make the beef really tender, also chop one Kiwi (yeah, that's right!):

How to ... Baby meatballs, heart-shaped Kimbap and carrot-flowers (Dosirak No. 5)

Hi 도시락lovers,

here another Dosirak:

This one has heart-shaped Kimbaps made of wild rice, filled with sesame leaves and carrots, carrot-flowers, salmon-wasabi-rolls, baby meatballs filled with baby peas, a tomato, Korean style spinach and raspberries for dessert.
This one has heart-shaped Kimbaps, flower-carrots, baby-meatballs also filled with baby-peas, kohlrabi (under the carrots) and raspberries, grapes and strawberries for dessert.

So how do you make heart-shaped Kimbap? It's pretty easy, but first you should get a little helper like this:

Speedy Kimchi-Mandu soup with mushrooms (Soup No. 1)

on Monday, August 1, 2011
Hi everyone,

like any (half) Korean, I love soup. And sometimes there isn't much time to cook, like, in the morning for breakfast, while making my Dosirak or before heading out to do stuff. So I love speedy soups, like this one:

I always have some Kimchi-Mandu (Korean dumplings or "wan-tans" filled with Kimchi, you can get that in the Asian supermarket) and mushrooms like Shiitake or Enoki ( 팽이버섯) in the freezer (also from the Asian supermarket). I just put everything in the pot with some broth powder and a fresh carrot and add some sesame sprinkles on top in the end. Delicious and it only takes 6 minutes!

Flowers and turkey - Dosirak No. 4

Hi 도시락lovers,

here a 도시락 with cute purple-orange flowers, spicy turkey and beans.
 The flowers are the same as in Dosirak No. 1, with the difference that I used purple carrots instead of regular ones (they sometimes have it @the supermarket here). They are on a bed of wild rice.
