Korean Meat

A friend used to go to a korean bbq where she got meat that was sliced but not all the way through and was shaped like a fan. It was already cooked when she got it. Does anyone know what this dish is called? TIA

  1. Was it beef, do you know?

    1. It's probably kalbi (beef short ribs). It comes in different cuts, but this sounds like the cut I used to eat growing up at home. My mom would buy English cut short ribs and butterfly them before marinating.

        Saw this done yesterday on Primal Grill, on PBS Create. He first ran the knife along the bone but not all the way through, unfolded like a book, and repeated the butterfly cut two more times. yielding a long narrow strip of meat with the bone at one end.

      2. Yes it is beef, does anyone know where we can get it in the Los Angeles area?

          Any Korean market with an in-house meat cutter should have both the LA cut (a thin strip with three to four oval bones), and the traditional "butterfly" cut.

            I really like the butcher counter at the Galleria Grocery Store, on the basement level of the Galleria. It's on the SE corner of Western and Olympic.
