Pre-marinated Korean BBQ to make at home

elmomonster | Jun 30, 2005 10:54 AM

If you are fortunate enough to live near a Korean supermarket, you've probably already discovered that they offer pre-marinated, sliced meats ready for the grilling. Their prices are always reasonable; for example, $3.49/lb for kalbi (beef short ribs).

The other night, I stopped by my local Korean grocer and picked up some bulgogi ($2.99/lb for sliced rib-eye marinated in the classic Korean BBQ way) to take home since I was in no mood to do the slicing and the marinating myself. Along with that I picked up a plastic container of bean sprout banchan. Banchan areKorean side dishes, usually consisting of veggies.

Sear the bulgogi on hot cast iron skillet a few at a time to avoid crowding and bam: a delicious and satisfying main course in minutes.

It had the intense flavors of garlic, sesame oil, soy and sweetness that you'd expect from a top-end Korean BBQ joint.

With the crisp, refreshing bean sprout banchan and hot steamed rice, it made for a spectacular meal.
