This black iron bulgogi grill pan from Iwachu Casting Works will produce perfect Korean barbecued beef in your own backyard. You place the pan on the barbecue grill with the coals heaped high beneath it, and then you place marinated meat on the domed area (the savory juices will run down and collect around the rim). Slits in the metal allow the heat to sear the meat directly and impart that authentic smoky barbecue flavor. Other, slit-free, models are designed for use on range tops and portable burners. To season the pan, film it lightly with oil and heat it on top of the stove or in the oven for two hours.
Domed bulgogi grill pan for barbecues, $25.99 at Kim's Home Center, 2940 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles. (213) 386-4882.
