Episode 8 :: Korean BBQ

KimchiJoin me as I visit a Korean market and purchase items for a semi-traditional Korean BBQ meal. We make beef bulgogi with rib eye steak, along with some spicy kimchi, a seaweed salad, and fish cakes.

I also enjoy some Soju on the show and try two different varieties. Soju is the national drink of Korea, and it tastes like a light vodka. Very easy to drink, and easy to get in trouble with. I give a little more information than you probably need on this drink, but we’re nothing on this show if not educational.

There’s also a discussion of Chris Cosentino and his San Francisco-based restaurant Incanto. Chris made it to the final 3 on The Next Iron Chef competition on Food Network. He recently appeared on an episode of “Modern Marvels” on the History Channel, which focused on “OFFAL” – cooking the less than desirable cuts of the pig. I play a brief segment of his appearance on that show. Check the whole thing out on the History Channel if you’re interested.

Oh, and don’t forget to listen to Big Foamy Head, where I’ll be making a brief appearance on their next “Sexiest Beer Alive” competition. Trust me, this is not to be missed.
