Impromptu Dinner...

On Saturday, my daughter called and asked how to make a Korean dinner.  She wanted to go buy the ingredients and put it all together.  My DBF told them (her and her family) to come over and he would show them how to do it.  He lived in Korea for 8 yrs and knows how to make this.  We invited my other daughter and her family and it turned into a party! 

This is a bowl of Barbeque Beef Strips that will be cooked
 on the grill that you see above.

This is cooked on a butane powered stove on the table
 where you are eating. 
Please excuse the christmas table cloth--
you need a plastic one as this can get a little messy...
and this is the only plastic one I have.

We had two stoves and an electric griddle.
There are 12 of us altogether, so we need to make a lot!

The smell is just incredible!

When the beef is cooked, you take a big lettuce leaf
and start piling the stuff on.

This is called Miso paste.  It is made with soybeans, hot pepper sauce and a little sesame oil. 
It adds lots of flavor to the lettuce rolls.

This is one that they bought at the Oriental store. 
DBF's was better.

This is a platter of Marinated Vegetables. 
This goes along with everything else....
White rice, and Kim Chee (pickled cabbage) are
also added to the the little package.
So pile everything onto the lettuce leaf, fold it up into a bundle and enjoy!  
Oh so good!
And so much fun, without a lot of forethought!
So they learned how to make it, and hopefully the next time they make it, they'll invite us over!
'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean
