Korean Beef Bowl

I love the taste of Korean BBQ.  However, most places have all you can eat beef for a set price.  It’s not a huge price, in my opinion, if you eat a lot, but if you don’t eat a lot of food, you’re paying a large sum of money for only a small amount of food.Korean Beef Bowls 1

Another aspect of Korean BBQ that I’ve never understood is that you “get” to cook your own food.  If I wanted to cook my own food, I would do that at home.  Why would I want to go to a restaurant where I have to cook my own food?Korean Beef Bowls 2

One benefit of going to a Korean BBQ restaurant is that they provide marinated meat.   It is hard to reproduce the same flavors at home.  Another benefit is that sometimes someone else at the table wants to be able to cook, so I don’t have to cook the meat.  They also usually have a variety of meats available to choose from.

Now you can make beef that tastes similar to the kind that is served at Korean BBQ restaurants at home, whenever you want it.
