Hey it’s Deb stopping by again from Bowl Me Over. Are you ready to get your grill on? Today I’m sharing an easy meal on the grill, a Korean BBQ Beef Bowl! And let me tell you, this meal is tasty!

What is in Korean style BBQ sauce?

  • chili paste
  • soy sauce
  • garlic
  • sesame oil
  • vinegar
  • brown sugar

Korean BBQ is slightly spicy and very flavorful – I know you’re going to love it! This is easy to make, cooks up super quick and has a ton of sweet/hot amazing flavor.

What kind of meat is used in Korean BBQ?

There are two main types of beef used in Korean BBQ – short rib meat & thin slices of rib-eye. You can also use top or bottom round. In this recipe I recommend tri-tip.  Just make sure the meat is very thinly sliced against the grain, that way is will be tender!

Pro-Tip! Ask your butcher to slice the meat for you! It’s a free serve and most are happy to help!

I love the flavor of tri-tip and it’s also a more affordable cut. After marinating the meat goes on a super-hot BBQ grill and is quickly cooked.

What are Korean side dishes?

  • kimchi – and before you turn up your nose, give it a try! Do you like sauerkraut? If you do, I bet you’ll really enjoy kimchi!
  • beansprouts
  • rice
  • fishcakes
  • seaweed
  • eggrolls – the list goes on and on!

Here’s the deal – eat what you enjoy, but don’t be afraid to step a bit outside your comfort zone, you just might find a new delicious flavor you love! I enjoy serving a spicy meal with bright flavors like mango, canned mandarins or pineapple. All offer a bright taste that pairs nicely with the rich flavors of this meal.
