“Senmai (omasum)” is the third of the stomach of a ruminant.
A cow has four-chambered stomach: mino (rumen), hachinosu (reticulum), senmai (omasum) and giara (abomasum). Each chamber has a different function. It is grilled and eaten in a Korean BBQ.
“Senmai” is the third stomach that send small food to the fourth one and push big food back to the second one. “Nama-senmai” means “raw” senmai. It is cleaned, sliced and served. It is eaten with “gochujang (Korean red chilli paste)” as it itself is almost tasteless. One enjoy the chewy texture.
