Nothing is easier or more delicious than these Korean BBQ Kabobs. Choose your favorite meat & veggies, marinate them then grill to perfection! Dinner in 30!
My husband and I just recently returned from a trip to Key West and, while there, had the most delicious Korean BBQ burritos (called Bulgogi burritos) from a little place called Grunts. Grunts is a small bar that has a cute open area to sit in under the trees and they’ve teamed up with a food truck called Garbo’s Grill in order to offer a convenient food service. Well, it was a great move on their part because Garbo’s has the most delicious grilled food you can image. Their menu is very short and simple but what they do have is tops! (And if you do happen to want to visit Grunts you need to get there early, as they close at 9, and they occasionally run out of favorites an hour prior to closing.)
I know I just passed over that little tidbit about Bulgogi so I thought I would give you a little info on exactly what it is. According to wikipedia, if literally means fire meat in Korean. It refers to meat (usually beef, but can be chicken or pork) that is marinated to enhance its tenderness then grilled. Ever since I saw bulgogi on Grunts’ menu I’ve seen it in a thousand places. Does that happen to you too?
OK, enough background on Korean BBQ. Now you can begin to understand why I wanted, no actually needed, to come up with my own interpretation of a Korean BBQ recipe. Mainly because I just can’t stop thinking about how tasty it was and now, thanks to this recipe, I can have it any time I want! (Of course, you will still see me stopping at Garbo’s Grill whenever I’m in Key West!)
This is one of those recipes that you can adapt to fit your family’s tastes and it is both quick and easy and perfect for the summer grilling season. The kabobs can be made with beef, pork or chicken and just about any veggies that you like. You can serve it over a salad as I did or with Grilled Corn with Parmesan Chili Butter or Grilled Herbed Potatoes on the side. Whatever way you serve them it’s sure to be a hit in your house.
