This past Sunday, Y.E. Yang shocked everyone with his upset win over Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship. Because it was such a surprise, I feel a little less embarrassed that I left him off my “what to eat when watching the PGA Championship” blog last week…but also feel that I owe my loyal blog readers an addendum: a Korean dish to celebrate the first Asian-born player to win a major golf championship.
I did a little research and called my neighbor, Helen, who not only is from Korea, but also is a fabulous cook, for some insight into Korean cuisine. She suggested the following recipe for Korean bar-b-que, called Galbi. (I’ve actually tasted this and it is amazing!)
Congratulations Y.E. Yang! This BBQ’s for you!
