So when I impulsively picked this up from Tarjee/Targhettino/Targemple/Targettini/Targeaux (Target), I felt… I felt… I felt… a bit out of character? Cooking Light is a magazine that lives on coffee tables, doctor’s lobbies, waiting areas for haircuts or dentists… Baby boomer women read this magazine. What made my arm muscles reach to grab this possibly cultural appropriated product? … *blink *blink
Fugggg it! Let’s just try this thing!
I had pretty low standards. I was expecting some sweet soy, maybe kimchi-bean-ish favor to dress a tough pile of pork. “Lowered Expectations”
Alright 5 minutes in the microwave and it’s supposed to be ready. MMMMKayyyy. I should’ve got some tortillas or some friggin rice (which would’ve been appropriate right?). Geeeeez I am losing Asian points left and right here!
I started pulling the meat to mix with the juices. It smelled alright. Actually the tenderness was pretty decent after ripping it all to shreds. There was not that much fat which is what I really love about pulled pork or beef. Guys, the best part of meat is the fatty parts that stick to the threads! C’mon why are people so uptight about fatty meat? That is FLAVOR PEOPLE! SABOR Amigos! Why you scared mayn??
Anyway, the flavor was definitely a sweet subtle soy with that earthy Korean flavor. It was definitely a safe marinade. A little too safe though. The meat had no spice or pepper or bite. Ya know what I mean? I suggest you do a little bit of doctoring to make it more interesting. However, if you are like my white bread Midwest baby boomer parents, you will probably like it just fine.
Would I buy it again? Yeah sure. If I am in a crunch and making Korean inspired pork tacos or bowls for my family. Why not.
Would I recommend? Eh….
Be ready for MORE MORE MORE REVIEWS from me
