Go ahead and knock #5 off my Forty x 40 list!
Two nights ago I tried my first ever attempt at making Kalbi! I bought the short ribs at HMart in Federal Way and put the ribs in a marinade of diced onions and 7Up. After a few hours I drained all the liquid (keeping the onions) and then threw in my marinade of soy sauce, ginger, garlic, sesame seed oil, honey, brown sugar and scallions. I let that sit over night and had two people try them.
The first person that tried them never had Kalbi before but loved it. I was happy but I wanted to see what a person familiar with korean food thought. Luckily my friend Eddie who’s Korean-American and has eaten a TON of kalbi was in town for business and came over for dinner last night.
He loved it as well!
I am making some serious headway on my 40 x Forty list – I am now on book 3 of the Harry Potter series!
After scanning the rest of the my list – I realized I have not gotten closer on anything else.
I have to get started. For this summer I will attempt to camp (#35), learn a new dance (#13), try to make daeji-bulgogi(#6) and daeng-jang-jigae(#7), and learn about my family history (#29)!
What do you want to do this Summer?
