  7. Add 1 or 2 tbsp. of sesame oil and some toasted sesame seeds
  8. Mix it by hand and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  9. After 30 minutes, you can grill the meat on charcoal BBQ, broil it in the oven, or grill it on the pan.

If using a regular stove, use a non stick pan and grill it one or two at a time. If you grill a large batch it will produce too much juice in the pan (just like a stewed meat) and it won’t have a grilled look texture. So you really need to cook it one by one or in two pieces at a time depending on the size of your pan.

Serving Suggestion:
This dish is ideally served with a side of fresh green lettuce or other leafy vegetable. The lettuce is used to wrap a slice of cooked meat, often times along with a dab of ssamjang, kimchi, or other side dishes and then eaten as a whole.
