Yukhoe and Yuksasimi – Raw Beef, Korean food

Yukhoe refers to meat that is not cooked by fire in the sense of the word.
It’s like eating raw meat without seasoning.

However, contrary to the meaning of this word, Yukhoe became the name of a particular food, so raw meat food has a different name.

Eating raw meat like this is one of the characteristics of Korean food.



Yukhoe refers to the food that is eaten with sliced pears after slicing raw beef thinly and mixing with various spices.
Seasonings include soy sauce, minced garlic, sesame seeds, and sugar.
And egg yolk usually goes up.

Meat is usually used in areas that are less oily, such as rump or Beef shank.
The reason why people eat with pears is because pears have enzymes that break down proteins.

Yukhoe tastes sweet and savory, so once you start eating it, it tastes really good.
If yukhoe seems difficult to eat, I recommend you to try yukhoe bibimbap.
