4. Rub sauce into beef with finger tips. Let the meat marinate for at least 1 hour.

* Barbeque Hints

Preheat grill well, then put meats on. Turn when one side is done. Never turn again since the meat loses its flavorful juice and becomes too crusty.

It is recommended to grill vegetables for nutritive balance and a change. Cut green peppers length-wise into halves or quarters. Slice green onion diagonally. Cut pumpkin, garlic or carrot into 1/8 in (0.3 cm) slices for easy cooking.

Red leaf lettuce (bronze lettuce) can also be rolled with other accompani ments.

Cooking the beef to the medium rare stage over charcoal brings out the best flavor of the meat. Traditionally, cooking is done at the table on a pulgoki grill over charcoal. Along with kimchee, pulgoki is the most famous Korean dish.
