Friday dinner: Yakiniku! Pork, beef, jalapeño, onion, kimchee, leafy lettuce, shiitake, sigeumchi-namul, kongnamool, cheese, pickled daikon/carrot, and Scotch Bonnet peppers… yum!!!
こんばんは。How’s it going?
Tonight we enjoyed yakiniku at home. It’s basically grilled meat and veggies, with dipping sauces. We had a variety of different meats (from the recently opened market) including an American wagyu-style beef. It’s super-delicious! For veggies, we had shiitake mushrooms, eggplant, onion, jalapeno, and kabocha, as well as a simple salad. Oh, and kimchee too! 🔥
If you’ve ever had yakiniku or Korean barbecue before, you know that there can be a fair amount of smoke produced, so ventilation is indispensable. In fact, at yakiniku restaurants, there are huge ventilation hoods over each table. If you are cooking at home, I suggest closing all the bedroom doors and open up some windows to circulate the air. Not that the smell is bad. It actually smells amazing, but you don’t want all your clothes smelling like grilled meat, do you? Speaking of that, I’d also suggest taking off your jacket and putting that in the closet or another room. 😄
Anyways, I ate too much of course, but it was worth it. I love yakiniku so much!
I hope you had a nice day.
