My son’s girlfriend who was visiting from Georgia, Shannon, volunteered to cook Sunday Roast this week.  It was an amazing Korean dinner – absolutely Delicious!

First the spicy sauce, which needed to sit and “marinade”.  Fresh garlic, sesame oil, and a couple types of red pepper

Also a marinade for the green onions which included sesame oil, kosher salt, garlic, and red pepper

Samgyeopsal is Unsalted bacon (pork belly) fairly thickly sliced – the kids picked up many of the ingredients at a local Asian market – they always have this type of meet on-hand.

Special pan – this would normally sit on the table so people could cook it themselves.  There is a bit of pork fat in the cup on the top.  The black dome sits on top of a ring that holds water where the grease goes – this means that the dome gets very hot but the meat is not cooking in the grease and the water helps keep the grease from igniting.

The strips of meat were cut into smaller, bite-sized pieces.
