Personally, this was one of the first dishes that I LOVED in Korean food.
I promised that I would write this recipe down for you last time when I posted on how to make Bulgogi.

She could see that I was sold before I even nodded and, with a big grin, added it to my bag of other vegetables. Thankfully, in this case, it was just a pack of wood ear fungus that make for delicious eating and thus, totally justifiable. Right honey?
