“This is very similar to marinated beef you’d see at a Korean barbecue restaurant, like bulgogi and galbi,” Kim says. “The marinade is in fact similar enough that it’d be wonderful for bulgogi (buy thinly sliced beef, often chuck) or for galbi (buy “flanken style” or “L.A. style” short ribs). But this is a slightly older version of those two dishes, and one that my mother reserved for special occasions, made with more steak-like cuts. The name ‘nubiani’ suggests the shape of whatever it’s marinating to be ‘wide and flat.’"
