Home Forums General discussion Cuts of meat…korean style Re: Cuts of meat…korean style



As I don’t have access to an Asian market that carries fresh meat in my area, I’ve had to be a bit creative with my meats. I can’t help with the Korean pronunciation or some of the others mentioned in the recipes you listed, but I use brisket or for most of my recipes including my yukaejang, sulungtang, and soy braised beef recipe. I use stirfry or thinly sliced tenderlon for my bulgogi. For korean bbq I use what Maangchi did on her vid: a really nice steak. And I use ground beef (or even cubed steak in a pinch) for my myuk-gook and rice cake soups.

I’ve even found uncured pork bellies in one of the local Harveys in my area…they also have cross cut ribs (I think the manager is married to a Korean woman which might explain how Korean style cuts of meat and the occasional Korean condiment pops up now and then). Most butcher shops will sell soup bones, which can also be incorporated in sulungtang. And luckily here in the South, things like pigs feet, chicken feet, and and ox tail aren’t too hard to find.
