By: Devon - Westport, CT - 2016 Recipe Contest
"My father in law took my husband and I to Korea many years ago and I fell in love with the cuisine. He passed away this month and I want to honor his generosity and wisdom by creating this fantastic recipe that celebrates coffee, steak and Korean flavors. He would have loved it!"
