Korean Barbecue

Korean Barbecue

Like yesterdays post for day Three we will be featuring something Korean, but dont worry it would not be as exotic as live octupus but it will be something served raw but totally cooked according to your preference, the ever delicious Korean Barbecue.

Gogigui or Korean Barbecue is a term referring to the method of grilling meats such as pork, chicken or beef on table tops using built in charcoal or gas grills or portable stoves. This is one of my favourite type of restaurants, not just it offers a lot of variety it also is very interactive and encourages more discussion compared to a normal meal (similar to the effects of American outdoor barbecues).

Different types of meats can be used and it can either be marinated or just plain, here are some of the popular meats served:

  • Beef Bulgogi – Sweet and Savoury Marinated Beef Steaks
  • Beef Galbi – Marinated Beef Short Ribs
  • Chadol Baki – Thinly Sliced Beef Brisket
  • Deungshim Gui – Beef Sirloin
  • Anshim Gui – Beef Tenderloin
  • Dweji Bulgogi – Spicy Pork Bulgogi
  • Jumulleok – Sesame Oil marinated Pork Steaks
  • Samgyeopsal – Thick Cut Unsalted Bacon
  • Dak Gui – Spicy Soy Chilli Marinated Chicken

It’s not just the meats who have that amount of variety, also the banchan (side dishes) that come along with it like Kimchi (fermented vegetables) and Namul (steamed, marinated or stir-fried vegetables) are just countless. So if you are looking for a variety in your dinner then this one is for you.

    Now this does sound like it would make for a fun restaurant experience. Gorgeous plate of meat!

  12. Oh yes, Korean BBQ in a Korean restaurant is the best not just because of the great food but like what you said, the interaction. To me, that’s what’s missing when you eat in a different restaurant. This is a good post, Raymund!

    LOVE Korean BBQ and I can eat it every week! There is no good Korean place around here but big Korean town in 40 mins. But BBQ season is here and we’ll be grilling by ourselves more! You have great posts going on this week. Sorry I’ve been absent. This week was crazy busy for me…

  14. I am so lucky there is a super good Korean BBQ restaurant a block away from me. Love it!

    We love Korean BBQ. Do you happen to know the dipping sauce they use in Korean Grill restaurants? We know it’s not just soy sauce (regular or less sodium). We just want to know so we can have a complete experience of Korean BBQ at home. Thanks.

    • Raymund says:

      You can make it by combining regular soy sauce, brown sugar, toasted sesame seeds, sesame oil. If its too salty you can dilute it with water. Adjust the contents to suit to your liking.
