Oh Glorious meat, how the Koreans make some wonderful grilled meat. Today the Hungry Ferret had a big craving for grilled BBQ. We will see how well the Hungry Ferret searches for the sweet scent and flavor of the wonderful Korean BBQ.
In the Korean tradition we were served lots of appetizers with our BBQ order. The Kim Chi was quite good and had a really nice tangy flavor. Along with that we had ordered a Kim Chi Pancake, the pancake was very flavorful and full of spicy goodness.
The grill was fired up and the first up to be grilled was the BBQ Pork Belly (Samgyeopsal Gui). This dish reminds me a bit of unsmoked bacon. After the meat was cooked, we dipped the meat in a salt / pepper vinegar. It was then wrapped in a piece of lettuce with some scallion / lettuce salad. The meat was thick and had chewyness. Often when I have had this dish, the meat was too thin.
Next to be grilled was the BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi). This will be a true test to see if black angus meat was better. Oh it was very tasty and full of flavor. The black angus had a nice marbling to it and that marbling transferred to how good the short ribs tasted. The meat was very tender and juicy.
