1/1 Photo of Japanese Style Beef Rib Eye BBQ - Beef Yakiniku
This is the second recipe for the Japanese style barbecue. The first one posted was pork. In Japan, barbecue is popular. It is however different from the American style barbecue. Beef, pork, chicken are usually thinly sliced for quick grilling and are grilled indoors. The diners sit around the table with the grill in the middle and pieces are quickly grilled and eaten at the table a few pieces at a time. This type of barbecue is called yakiniku which translates to grilled meat. People outside of Japan are sometimes familiar with yakitori, a skewered chicken pieces, usually marinated and grilled. But, yakiniku is equally popular in Japan. Yaki means grilled and niku means meat. Yaki means grilled and tori means poultry. You can use he whole apple instead of half and you can certainly sub the apple with pear or nashi (pear apple). Although you can most likely use the juice only in a pinch, you want the pulp from the fruit to adhere to the meat while grilling.
