Doejibulgogi - Korean Spicy Stir-Fried Pork Bento


Korean Spicy Stir-Fried Pork or Doejibulgogi or Jeyuk bokkeum is my husband's absolute favourite Korean food. When I was still studying in Sydney, my husband (then boyfriend) visited me quite regularly and when he was there, we would go to the various food courts in China Town and tried different kinds of delicious Asian foods. We got to know Doejibulgogi in one of those food courts. We loved it that we always got kimchi and cabbage salad as side dishes for free everytime we bought something Korean - we were just poor students back then ;).

Since finding Korean restaurants in Germany is like looking for a needle in a haystack, I've converted to watching cooking videos from YouTube instead ;) and tried to make
Korean dishes myself at home. My references usually come from one these talented ladies: the cool Maangchi, Aeri from Aeri's Kitchen and Anna Kim from Korean Cuisine.

    @ Aeri Lee - What an honour to get a comment from you :D)!! I love your cooking videos and website, I've been a long-time silent reader too :). Your Doejibulgogi tastes just like the one I know from Sydney, I love the addition of apple in your recipe :)!

  4. haha...I go to the Chinatown foodcourts to eat Korean food sometimes ;) My friend orders the stir fried pork (I'm pretty sure it's the same as this one...) everytime her eats there too! Your version looks delicious- and the sushi balls are so cute too!

  5. Wow - what a stunning bento and the pork looks amazing! I enjoyed the video as well....GREAT marinade!

  6. What a beautiful Bento. My mouth waters just looking at how wonderful your presentation is! Your husband is a lucky man. :)

  7. What a delicious bento!! Love the korean stir fried pork here. Looks delicious!! Your temari sushi looks beautiful too!

  8. wow all so pretty and delicious! I wonder how long it took you to prepare all dishes for the bento. You must be very patient to prepare all these.. I know I won't have the patience! :)

  9. yeah, i watched maangchi and aeri's clips too, they are good. ..i hv not tried this pork before. hmm..gochuyang paste in pork sounds delicious though.

  10. I have already cooked "with" Maangchi but didn't know Aeri, thanks for introducing her. This pork looks perfect for me (pork+spicy+Korean just has to taste heavenly!). You have reminded me I still haven't tried temari sushi. Yours look lovely!

  11. I've had Korean spicy fried pork before, but it didn't look this beautiful :) Love your Bento collection!
    Thanks for stopping by my site! Don't be a stranger!

  12. Looks fantastic! I went to a Korean restaurant for the first time a few days ago and I really enjoyed the food. I look forward to tasting more Korean dishes.

  13. Would it be as hard to find a Korean place in the capital of Germany too? I was talking with some German friends recently when we went to dinner at a Korean BBQ place here in Paris and they said the same as you - that it's really difficult finding decent Japanese or Korean restaurants in Germany. There are SO many in Paris - I'd have thought it must be similar in Berlin, even if not so much in other cities...

  14. Oh, your pork looks so crisp and amazing! It reminds me a bit of a Korean pork bulgogi I make, but without the ginger. Yours looks delicious!

  15. OMG WHY SO CUTE!!!!
    hehe you're going on my Blog Roll ♥

  16. @ Sissi - you should make temari sushi too, it's easy to make and look pretty too :)!

    @ Charles - I guess it would be easier to find Korean restaurants, or (more authentic) Asian restaurants in general in bigger cities, such as Berlin. But what I have around where I's just poor (after all I used to live in Sydney, a melting pot of cultures and thus a food paradise...;)!!)

    @ Vivian - Aww, thank you! What an honour to be on your blogroll :D)!!

  17. I also watch aeri on youtube! and maangchi! you did the recipe perfectly, everythign looks so good! honestly, how do you bear to eat your food.

  18. You have a beautiful blog. Beautiful photos with flowers, I love it. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  19. I just tried this recipe and love it :D.

  20. @ Tina - I am glad you liked it, let's thank Aeri :D)!
