Not long ago, offal specialty stores all over the country were bustling, starting with an entertainment program called Gopchang Food. The craze for offal was amazing enough to endure the long waiting times in the heat. âGibletsâ refer to the small intestine of a cow, and it is a part that contains a lot of elastic fibers such as collagen. Cleanly prepared offal is used in dishes such as grilling, hot pot, and stir-fries, and is an ingredient that adds a savory flavor with its unique oily flavor. However, since it contains a lot of protein and enzymes, capturing unique odors is considered the core of cooking. First, you should remove enough blood water and use garlic , ginger, Japanese pepper, etc. to remove the smell. Also , after cleaning the white oil on the surface of the offal, add flour and salt, and wash it off several times to remove the smell You can catch it cleanly.
The nicely grilled offal starts out chewy and has a savory flavor that spreads softly throughout the mouth. In particular, there are many lovers who like the harmony between soju and offal. Giblets, which are high protein and low cholesterol foods, have an excellent decomposition effect when eaten as a snack to protect the stomach lining, break down alcohol, and promote digestion It is known to have such effects. This is why shochu is not missing when eating offal. The texture and pleasure are multiplied by adding various visceral parts such as giblets, lamb, and daikon. After eating it all, fried rice stir-fried on an iron plate is also a must! Let's enjoy a hearty meal of offal .
