I am doing a barbecued bulgogi tri-tip for our Sunday meal. This popular Korean dish is usually made with thinly shaved marinated beef and then grilled with onions. Daughter Miriam is off garlic and onions—I also did not want to spend time par-freezing an finely slicing my meat—I would have to adapt my recipe to her needs. I finally decided to marinate a whole tri-tip, barbecue it, and then slice the roast at the table.

For this Sunday’s Korean Dinner, I decided to make separate starch and meat main dishes, because my son-in-law is again avoiding starches. I am making beef bulgogi and a vegetarian japchae. That way my diners can adjust their servings as it pleases them. In addition I am serving three vegetable sides: chive stem kimchi; Korean cucumber salad; and a Korean bok choy dish.
Last week, Jan and I went over the hill to Santa Cruz to visit her “new” brother. While we were there, we stopped by a large book store that was going out of business. The cookbook section was fairly picked over, but as I was perusing the fiction section I found a book Izakaya: Japanese Bar food—someone had obviously picked it up and then changed their mind, leaving it “where ever.” Their loss, my gain. This Sunday, I decided to make a Japanese bar style dinner.
Son-in-law Chris has requested tri-tip for his birthday meal. My daughter, Miriam, has been experimenting with her new sous-vide device and we decided to make a joint effort and give it a try. We settled on Santa Maria tri-tip as the seasoning—Myr would sous-vide the meat and I would grill it.
I decided to barbecue some tri-tip for Memorial Day. I have done this roast many different ways—California Fusion, Sichuan, Salt and Pepper with Green Pepper Sauce, Moroccan, Santa Maria style, Teriyaki, Cajun, and just plain Barbequed. What could I do that was new and different? I looked at some recipes marinating beef in red wine, but they seemed mundane.
