Korean Barbecue Wet Rub

One of the most popular Korean dishes is bulgogi, thin slices of beef that are soaked in a sweet-salty marinade and grilled. Here is a traditional-tasting rub that goes on just before the food is grilled. It's great on salmon, steaks, pork tenderloin, dark- meat chicken, or any game bird, such as duck or quail.
