Foodie Goodie | Kalbi Taco.

It's Korean meets Mexican in this week's edition of Foodie Goodie!

I've been craving for Kalbi (Korean barbecued beef short ribs) the entire week - ever since the husband mentioned that he had Kalbi last Sunday. So I went to the supermarket today, bought a pack of Kalbi along with a box of taco shells and decided to make some Kalbi Taco for dinner. It's a dish I learned from watching too much Arirang TV, haha! :)

Kalbi Taco

Ingredients: 
250 grams Kalbi, cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
a pinch of sesame salt
black pepper/paprika powder to taste

1 can of sliced mushrooms
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tomato, diced
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup mayonnaise
6 taco shells

Procedure:
1. Prepare the Kalbi mixture by combining the first six ingredients in a bowl. Let stand for at least an hour.
2. Heat a frying pan on medium-high, add Kalbi mixture and cook until brown.
3. Add mushrooms to the pan, stir-fry for about two minutes.
4. Add onions to the pan, stir-fry until the onions soften.
5. Add the tomatoes next, stir-fry for about a minute.
6. Spoon the Kalbi mixture into the taco shells.
7. Top with lettuce, cheese, and mayonnaise. Serve.

I've tried Kalbi before and I like the savory taste of it. With the taco, ang sarap siguro nyang pulutan and snack. Is this a part of your HCG diet recipe? thanks for sharing

Hi Kath! Kalbi is love, no? :)
I'm done with the HCG Diet for now, but I'm still watching what I eat and counting the calories, hehe. :)

Sounds interesting-but you lost me at the soy sauce, that and MSG make me swell up like a balloon. Now if I was a lot younger I would have tried this in a NY second!
