A good reason to fire up the BBQ

I was teaching a BBQ class outdoors the other day and I had a customer criticize me for not holding a beer in one hand whilst grilling with the other, saying that it was mandatory.

I don’t completely disagree with him, however being at work makes this idea more problematic, and even though I’m the boss, it would be awkward  to fire myself!

That being said one of the current food trends is of course the Korean BBQ.

“Bulgogi” is a word that literally means “fire-meat”

The word fire is not to necessarily imply that the recipe should be spicy but more so that it should be cooked over a fire or grilled. This is a tradition that started off as a “street-meat” in Korea that has now evolved into finer restaurants.

I like to put a few chili peppers in the marinade more so for flavour than for actual heat, as this dish can be quite flavourful!

I like to make the marinade in a separate bowl, pour some over the raw meat but also reserve some that has not been contaminated so that I can use some on the veggies and also to finish the cooked product. Fire away!
