I apologize for the blurry photos I was obviously way too excited about this recipe or drunk on Korean beer. 😉
For those of you who know me I am obsessed with Korean bbq and finding the right recipe has been the ultimate challenge. Alas, through some diligent research I discovered a magical secret ingredient authentic to this type of bbq, PEAR JUICE!
I have the most amazing marinade for you that will save you the $18.99 on the All You Can Eat (AYCE). Now you can make korean bbq right in your home. The meat will be perfectly caramelized and tender. It will not skip a beat. I highly recommend using a grill pan to enhance your “at-home” dining experience, but it’s up to you.
Any type of beef will do, galbi, bulgogi, or I even used skirt steak. After it marinades for about 8 hours cut into small pieces using kitchen scissors.
The Most Amazing Korean BBQ Marinade (Time: 8 hours)
- 1 cup of pear nectar/juice (goya)
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 3-4 chopped cloves of garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger
Combine the meat and all the ingredients together into a large ziplock bag. Place in the fridge. 🙂
For the ginger you just need a little bit of the root. You can purchase by the pound. My little piece cost .30. Peel the skin and finely grate into the mixture…
Let the grilling begin!!
The perfect side for this dish haricot vert. Sounds fancy, but it’s just the skinny version of the string bean that is now sold at your local grocery store in bags next to the regular green beans. I sautéed mine with some sweet yellow onion slices in some butter with equal parts molasses and soy sauce. 🙂
Simmer them on low for about 15-20 minutes while you grill the steak. Super easy. 🙂
When the bbq is done, plate the haricot vert and onion mixture alongside the meat.
Serve with this awesome chili garlic sauce. You can find it down the asian foods aisle. 😉
Looking at these pictures is making me hungry. Now go have a kick ass korean meal with your friends!!
