Korean BBQ: 3 Top Tips

by Ella Rodriguez

If you are planning to throw your first Korean BBQ party, you may be wondering about how best you can enjoy the wonderful dishes which are presented to you. The magical thing about Korean BBQ is that the food is prepared and cooked right in front of your eyes. Watching the meat as it is seasoned and then sizzled on the grill can really help you to work up an appetite. Read on to discover some top tips which will help you to enjoy your Korean BBQ experience.

Choose your meat

The first thing you will need to do is to choose which type of meat you would like to try out. Popular choices include beef ribs, steaks, or thin layers of brisket. Alternatively, you may wish to opt for large strips of pork belly or whole chicken breasts.

Cook the meat to perfection

The food supplier will allow you to cook your own meat if you wish to do so. The key to producing high-quality BBQ food is the initial heat of the grill. Ideally, you want the grill to be extremely hot before you place any meat on it. The intense heat generated by the BBQ grill will instantly sear the exterior of the meat, locking all of the juicy flavours inside. Ideally, the exterior of the meat should begin to change to a darker colour and caramelise once it is placed on the grill.

Another sign that the grill is hot enough is pops and sizzles as the meat comes into contact with the BBQ grill. Once the meat is cooking, it is best to avoid the urger to keep flipping it over. Traditional BBQ from this part of the work is typically only turned once or twice during the cooking process.

Choose your side dishes

Finally, you will need to choose which side dishes you would like to enjoy with the meat. Popular side dishes include omelette, chopped onions, and green or mixed salads. While the potato doesn't feature heavily in Korean side dishes, many suppliers are happy to serve French fries with this menu. Contact a local supplier to find out more.
