    Rinshinomori's Note:

    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.

      This was great!! I used a 3 lb prime rib roast. Now i didn't slice it into strips. i marinated it just as written with so fresh ginger added and grilled the whole thing on our charcoal grill for 45 mins. I just couldn't bring myself to slice up a 30 dollar piece of meat. But it came out great everyone in my family raved about it. i will definately make again, maybe with a cheaper piece of meat. Thank you so much for this great treat. Oh yeah and it works great will chicken too!

      Seeing as one of your recipes is already in our family favorites cookbook and one that is so a repeatable at our house - sees to recipe requests ... just knew this was going to be one we would enjoy - and that we did. Made as posted using steak and wouldn't change a thing. I think it would be great with chicken too - will soon find out. Thank you for sharing those lovely recipes!

      We normally go out for yakiniku, so it was a nice change to make it at home. The marinade is excellent! Thanks Rinshinomori! Made for ZWT 4 Zingo.
