  • Korean Beef Barbecue

    Korean Beef Barbecue

    Bulgogi, beef barbecue, is one of the most popular Korean dishes. It's usually made by soaking thin slices of beef in a sweet-salty marinade, then grilling. Let the sirloin steak marinate for about an hour so that it can absorb the dark sauce made from brown sugar, soy sauce, sweet rice wine, ginger, and garlic.

    If you're eager to try kimchi, but don't have time to let the spicy condiment ferment for a week or so, try an adapted version of the sauce. Marinate chicken thighs for 30 minutes in a flavorful mixture of dark sesame oil, fresh ginger, honey, and cloves. Serve with a light, seasonal side, like sliced cucumber.

    Traditional Korean dishes are served with rice, so prepare a dish with a rich sauce that will soak into the grains. This beef bowl calls for a marinade of soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger, and Asian sesame oil. A similar sauce is made to drizzle over the flank steak after plating.
