“There's a small Korean restaurant near the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where they make this dish on Tuesdays only. The line goes out the door. I tried a dozen different recipes until I found this one, which is pretty close to the Tuesday special. There are three parts to this recipe: the main dish, the marinade, and Kochujang sauce”
