Here’s a collection of my best Korean BBQ recipes that have earned high marks from you readers out there!
What says summer more than firing up the grill for delicious barbecue dishes! Here, I’ve collected my best Korean BBQ dishes for you to try at home this summer. These are my go-to recipes that have also earned high marks from you readers out there!
The marinades are easy to put together, and most of these dishes do not take a long time to marinate. All of them can be easily doubled or tripled for a large group, making it perfect for your summer gatherings.
If you make my all-purpose Korean marinade, it will be even quicker and easier because you don’t need to assemble a new marinade each time.
If you don’t want to bother with outdoor grilling, or it’s not feasible for you, use a portable gas grill or electric grill to cook at the table. Oven broiling is also an option for these dishes.
As always, serve Korean BBQ dishes with lots of vegetables, such as lettuce, perilla leaves (kkaennip), pachae, and ssukgat (crown daisy), with ssamjang (sauce for wraps). If you want to add some vegetable side dishes, check out my 15 Korean Vegetable Side Dishes.
Bulgogi is very easy to make at home with a few basic ingredients, and the thinly sliced beef doesn’t take long to marinate. This bulgogi recipe shows you everything you need to know about how to make the best bulgogi!
If you like sweet and savory bulgogi flavor but don’t like red meat, this one’s for you! For outdoor grilling, cut the chicken into large pieces and marinate longer. Double (or triple) the recipe as needed. Grill until nicely charred basting with the marinade.
