Have you Eaten?: Korean Raw Beef topped with Egg Yolk

Korean Raw Beef or Yukhwae (육회)is amazing. The meat is not aged, so it has a fresh taste to it and it is often mixed with slivers of Asian white pear. The juices of the pear help to tenderize the meat and add flavor. The meat is topped with a fresh egg yolk and this is mixed in before eating. The creaminess of the yolk adds to the freshness of the beef. The meat can be dipped in a roasted sesame sauce and salt mixture or with red chili paste and with raw garlic.

It is a taste experience like no other and I recommend you try it. The best place to get it is at the Yukhwae Alley in Kwangjang Market.
