Despite being Vietnamese, my comfort food are various kimchi-based dishes such as kimchi stew (kimchi jiigae), kimchi pancake (kimchijeon), kimchi fried rice, as well as fusion options like kimchi udon or kimchi pasta.

Lately, my obsession has been Kimchi Duruchigi!!

Duruchigi (두루치기 ) is a traditional dish originating from the Gyeongsang provinces in South Korea. In this dish, pork is cooked together with kimchi and various vegetables.

There are also variations of Duruchigi with squid or tofu.

Duruchigi is a a delightful midpoint between a stir-fry and a stew. Pork (beef, squid or tofu) and other vegetables sizzle with a flavorful sauce in an iron pan, and then cooked with some water.

Duruchigi is also known as a “rice thief” (밥도둑, bapdoduk) because its delicious spicy-savory taste is so irresistible that you’ll find yourself eating lots of rice with this dish.
