    Ok Dol Bi Bim Bop is one of the strangest, most delicious foods I have ever eaten. It's an Asian dish (Korean I'm pretty sure) served in a stone bowl. I don't even remember what is in the bowl other than rice, hot sauce (you can add at your own digression), veggies and various meats with a fried egg on top of it. Only one place I know serves it and that's the Dah Mee restaurant in Natick, MA and I've only had it once. I tried looking up the ingredients and so far have been unsuccessful. I might actually have to go back and copy down the description from the menu.

    The dish sounds insane but it was delicious. Yolk all over the place, heated stone pot, stomach having multiple orgasms, I should really get back there.

    Either way, if you ever wanna make somethign totally delicious and pretty easy, making a nice thai curry is pretty simple.

    Do you use curry pastes from thailand or domestic pastes? Or do you make your curry from scratch?
    I use pastes from the local asian market.. dunno what you wanna count those as. I really wanan try making it from scratch but finding a lot of the ingredients in the US seems liek it would be pretty hard...

    I'm referring to the country of manufacture, so buying them at an asian store doesn't necessarily tell me if they're thai or domestic. I just ask because when I first started playing around with thai coooking I tried some of the domestic brands that are easily found in normal supermarkets in the ethnic section such as Thai Kitchen and found them to be lacking. I later found that this was because they often left out some of the traditional ingredients such as shrimp paste, kaffir lime leaf, and/or galangal. Also they tend to tone down the heat. So I've found that curry pastes from thailand are much better though I'd also like to try making my own curry pastes one of these days.

    Also, availability of ingredients varies widely by region in the U.S. I imagine you'd have a hard time finding fresh lemongrass in most areas of Montana but here in Seattle many of the ingredients are readily available in specialty markets.



    I just checked, and the pastes I use are infact from thailand... brand Maesri

    I use that brand also, along with Mae Ploy but Maesri makes one of the few prik khing pastes I can find.

    Ive actually never made Prik Khing.. I usually stick to green or red, and on occasion Massaman, but that usually takes a bit more preparing than green or red.

    Edit : A really good cookbook for Thai Cuisine is "It Rains Fishes: Legends, Traditions and the Joys of Thai Cooking " by Kasma Loha-Unchit. Its where I get all my thai cuisine from.

    Not many people know this, but Asians are fucking coo-coo for hotsauce. The place I used to work at was a really good pan-asian place and when the chefs made food for the kitchen it either had copious amounts of crushed pepper sauce in it or it had huge knots of ginger-root. Rice and scrambled eggs (cooked in vegetable oil) is a pretty satisfying breakfast and not bad at all with the pepper-sauce.

    I went toe-to-toe once with the Mexican dishwashers with putting the stuff on my eggs once. They were waiting for me to vomit lava the whole time but I have a cast-iron stomach. I still would never put that much normally, because I think I lost some stomach lining and it tasted like hot acid.

    I still maxxed out the chili paste or whatever it was in the Bi Bim Bop because it was motherfucking delicious. I need to eat there again after writing about it. My stomach remembers what it felt like and wants more. I haven't had it since the summer.

    I worken in a little dive motel during college and the manager had an apartment right off the main office. He was korean and would make kimchi every other week or so.

    It was, without exaggeration, the absolute worst thing I have ever smelled in my life.

    It always drove me up the fucking wall when co-workers (phillipino I think but I coud be wrong) would reheat their fish lunches in the microwave and it wasn't just normal fish but some kind of aged/fermented fish that smells really fucking pungeant and the smell would permeate the whole office. Ugh.

    I had a similar situation with a filipino co-worker a few years back. I just learned to eat lunch at 11am so I wouldn't be anywhere near the break room when she went to have lunch.

    yeah it's a good dish. specifically, it's Korean steamed rice, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed asian cucumbers/zuchinni(?), steamed spinach, sauteed diced carrots, pan cooked ground beef w/ a little soysauce, sesame seed oil, and ground garlic, steamed and then pan cooked bean sprounts with salt and sesame seed oil and sesame seeds themselves. the hot sauce is actually more of a paste. you add both the hot paste and sesame seed oil at whatever amount you want. and when i say sauteed, you can have those veggies any you want, you can sweat them, pan fry them (raw would be kind of weird though), or for an American twist, grill them (that sounds pretty awesome, i should try that). and don't be afraid to try putting in different stuff, you can use shitake mushrooms, bok choi, egg plant, etc. if you want it to be a bit more fresh, try putting in like thinly diced tubers. for the egg on top, just fry one egg, sunny side up. when i get mine piping hot, i just ask whoever to crack open a raw egg on top, and then i'll mix that around, have the rice/stone bowl cook it up, and then add my veggies and meat.

    some non-korean people i know really like, and others really don't. either way, it's really healthy for you, and you can go as far as just 2-3 ingredients or 8-10, it's all preference and amount of time you have.

    Edit:

    beated by druhim. damn you wikipedia.

    Overstuffed? This is important.
    Cheese, beef, sausage?

    Lobster ravioli is the best but I hope it doesn't come in cans.

    Did you try telling her to stop eating so much? Were you using food in the bedroom? Only fruit works in that situation. Fruit and dessert toppings. You shouldn't rub steak or mac n' cheese on a girl's nipple. They usually aren't into that.

    Don't put a quarter-bottle of concentrated green habanero sauce into it. Especially when the bottle is labeled entirely in spanish and was acquired in Mexico while on vacation. My ex did not know this advice when she made chili once. It was good, but we had to mix it with rice to taste it.
