Recipe: Spicy Korean BBQ Pork (pics)
Spicy Korean BBQ Pork
As you might expect, I love all kinds of barbecue. I also love Asian food,
but I'd never done any Korean barbecue, so this was a bit new to me. It's
only a bit new because it uses a lot of familiar flavors, but to a different
The Korean name of this dish is Daeji Bulgogi. Bulgogi means "meat fire" and
it's traditionally made with beef. In this case we add daeji, which means
"pork", so we end up with "pork meat fire". Now, in barbecue terms that
that just about all you need to know.
This is a mildly sweet and spicy dish that is served with either lettuce for
wraps, or with steamed rice. It also typically calls for pureed or grated
Asian pear (a natural meat tenderizer), but I came up with a substitute of
applesauce and pineapple juice.
OK, enough with the food anthropology, let's get some pork meat fire
2 lb Lean pork (I used sirloin tip)
6 Scallions, quartered widthwise
2 Scallions, chopped to 3/4" (for garnish)
1 large Yellow onion, cut into eight wedges
Toasted sesame seeds
Canola oil spray
3/4 cup Pineapple juice
1/2 cup Applesauce (natural)
1/2 cup Soy sauce
1/4 cup Light brown sugar
4 cloves Garlic, minced
3 Tbsp Mirin (or 1 Tbsp honey and 2 Tbsp water mixed)
2 Tbsp Oelek sambal (Thai chili paste)
1 Tbsp Ginger, grated
1 Tbsp Sesame oil
1 Tbsp Fish sauce (optional)
Note: You'll need a grill wok or a wire rack to sit on top of your grill grate.
You can also stir-fry this in a wok or cast iron skillet on the stove top.
To aid in slicing, put the pork in the freezer for about 30-45 minutes.
Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a large bowl and whisk well.
When the pork is partially frozen, slice it across the grain to about a
Add the pork, onions and quartered scallions to the bowl and stir to
Cover the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for 3-6 hours.
Start your grill and prepare for direct cooking at medium-high heat
While your grill is heating, with a slotted spoon remove the pork, onions
and scallions from the marinade to a platter or baking dish, draining the
excess marinade. Reserve one cup of the marinade.
Spray your grill wok or wire rack well with canola oil spray then set it on
your grill grate and let it preheat for 2-3 minutes.
Grill the pork and veggies in the wok or on the rack direct for about four
minutes per side.
While grilling, bring the reserved cup of marinade to a gentle boil in a sauce
pan over medium heat and let boil for five minutes. This kills the nasties in
the marinade and allows you to use it as a finishing sauce.
Remove the pork and veggies to a platter and drizzle with the cooked
Garnish with the sesame seeds and chopped scallions.
(Makes four servings)
