carne asade and bulgogi in TJ's refrigerator section

The TJ staff member stocking this section said these 2 products were the top sellers. However, the instructions for both say to grill them. I don't have access to a grill. Is there an alternative cooking method that would still make these great tasting?

  1. I would think you could sear/brown in a pan (preferably cast iron) then put into the oven. I used to do that with their tri-tip when I did not have any outdoor space for a grill. It's not the same as if you grilled it but still good. You could also get a stovetop grill pan and do it that way.

      1. You can do it in a pan. That said, their carne asada has gone way downhill over the past few years. It used to be perfect, but now they are cutting it way too thick for what I expect from carne asada.
