Earlier in the day, I’d sent IZ to the supermarket to buy garlic – I failed to specify the form or amount – and he returned with a huge bag of peeled garlic cloves. When I looked at him with a “WTF?” look on my face, he was like, “Well, I don’t know!”
So I made bossam, using my standard scallion-steam technique (see 2.222 Bossam (with recipe)), and added about half of the garlic cloves.
It turned out okay. While the meat did have a hint of garlic, I had expected more of a garlic explosion.
Now I have to figure out something to do with the other half of the bag.
