Provided is a chunk of beef fat, which is intended to be rubbed on the warm grill, presumably to create a nonstick surface.
Never understood why this is necessary, especially at places serving high-end cuts, which in Korea tend to be high in fat, which are inherently nonstick.

In Seoul.  Here on holiday during DJ’s fall break.  Arrived Saturday, flying back to Manila next Monday.

MNM for lunch (see most recently 7.198 The Best MNM in the World).

  1. Looks SO delicious. Look at that marbling. Do you have any high-fat, melt-in-mouth beef recipes for the slow cooker>

    1. never used a slow cooker. but generally, i would think that low-fat cuts are more appropriate, because the longer/lower cooking time allows for the muscle to break down and become melt-in-mouth. high-fat cuts, like ribeye, can be flash-cooked/seared, as a steak, and still be melt-in-mouth.

      1. You would need a cut with both connective tissue and fat! The long cooking time will break down collagen into gelatin and the fat will keep it moist and flavourful. A lot of cuts high in connective tissue usually have plenty of fat anyway.

  2. brisket, ideal for slow and low bbq.

    but i also like the challenge of using cheap and lean cuts, simmered to tenderness in a nice sauce, as in a stew.
