Korean Style BBQ Chicken

I love Korean BBQ!  It is spicy, sweet and all around delicious.  Since I moved from the DC area I have been having the hardest time trying to find good Korean food.  So I decided to make some from scratch.  It was delicious.

Korean Style BBQ Chicken

To start grate the garlic, ginger and onion into a 1 gallon zip-top bag.

Grate the ingredients

Then add an 8 oz can of crushed pineapple, 1/2 soy sauce, 1/2 cup gochujang (or other Asian style chili sauce), 1 tbs brown sugar, 1 tbs toasted sesame oil, dash pepper and 1 tbs toasted sesame seeds.  Mix the mixture together.  Remove 1/4 cup of the marinade and reserve it in a container in the fridge to use as a condiment later when serving the chicken.  Make sure to reserve the marinade before adding the chicken.

Add the remaining ingredients

Then thinly slice 1 pound of chicken breasts.  Add the chicken to the marinade.  Let the mixture marinate for at least 2 hours.

Thinly Sliced Chicken

Preheat your grill to high heat.  Add a vegetable grill pan to the grill.  This will prevent the thinly sliced chicken from falling through the grates.

Cook the chicken on a grill pan

Cook the meat until the chicken is opaque and the edges start to caramelize.

Cooked and starting to caramelize

Remove and serve over rice or in lettuce cups with your reserved marinade.

Recipe Notes

Useful Equipment:
Grill Pan
Microplane Side Note - If you do not have a grill, cook this in a heavy bottom fry pan over medium high heat.

This meal was delicious.  It was sweet and a little spicy.  It was full of the that amazing flavor that I remember.

  1. This sounds absolutely amazing, Rex, especially the idea of using this as lettuce wraps. Gotta try this one!

  2. The preservation theory needs to explain why carnivores like lions, which are on top of the food chain and thus have little to fear, sleep the most. It has been suggested that they need to minimize energy expenditure when not hunting.

  3. Some suitcases that include a telescopic handle and wheels are known as trolley cases. Trolley cases typically have two fixed wheels on one end with the handle located on the opposite for vertical movement.
