I haven't been doing much these days except waking up early in the morning to make 便當s (Bento/lunchboxes). JLo's 3rd year DDS schedule is pretty screwed up; on their last 3 weeks, the school decided to add 3 new classes for them. They have classes every day from 8am - 5pm, with only two 30-45 minute breaks in between. On top of that, they have to study for their Pharmacology final and 3 other finals for their new classes. Freaaaak.... so to make his life easier, i thought I'd take care of his lunches so he could have something to look forward to in the looong, tedious day of his. On my first day of 便當-making, i made Bulgogi with the marinade his mom sent him from Taiwan. Since JLo has a pretty big appetite, I made a 2 portion lunch with 1) chicken bulgogi and 2) beef bulgogi. I'm pretty sure he liked it cuz he asked me to make it again. So on Friday, i made him another 2 portion 便當 with 1) beef bulgogi, 2) chinese dumplings (will update on it later), and a salad :D. I actually quite enjoy waking up early to cook; not only does it fix my biological clock, but I also get first pick on fresh food at PP! Morning grocery shopping at PP is the best! Now I finally understand why moms are so willing to wake up early to shop and bargain at markets, hahaha. Well anyways, too bad I can only make lunches until next tuesday (pediatrics training is starting soon). So for now, JLo can continue being one lucky + happy man ;)

  • 200g beef, cut into thin slices
  • Prepared Bulgogi marinade
    - If you don't have/cant find this, try this recipe.
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 stalk of spring onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
  1. In a bowl, mix together the beef and about 2 tablespoons of bulgogi marinade. Refridgerate overnight.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet and stir-fry the onions and beef. Add Bulgogi marinade sauce to taste.
  3. When beef is about done, add in the spring onions and stir fry for another minute.
  4. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with rice.
