Korean BBQ, Asian Slaw

This recipe came together in pieces, first with the salad/slaw, then doing a galbijjim-style beef. I had made both before – the slaw for tacos and the beef for galbijjim, a Korean short-rib stew. Everything is surprisingly easy, but has a lot of flavor and is a good hot weather dish.
