★ Notes★
● Try using the gochujang (red chili paste) and mayonnaise to connect the minced beef.
● Dressing the grated with sweet vinegar and perilla wonderfully matches the taste of the beef and the bitter melon – This is perfect as a side dish with beer.

★ Outline★
● This is a healthy dish with relief from the fatiguing summer heat through the combination of the vitamin B and iron of the beef with the vitamin A and C of the bitter melon.
