Bulgogi Beef Ribs

This Month's Film: The Harmonium in My Memory
Cuisine: Korean

Bulgogi is the classic Korean barbeque technique. The meat is marinated in a spicy mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, scallions, and chili paste. For this menu, I chose beef short ribs, which were quite large and meaty, and instead of grilling on an open brazier according to Korean tradition, I slow-roasted them in the oven until they were tender and charred to a deep mahogany.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month, along with my 'Harmonium in My Memory' film review
