Spicy Grilled Boneless Pork Spare Ribs

Daeji bulgogi Spicy pork is a popular Korean grilled dish and it is quite different from beef bulgogi, mainly because the marinade is not only soy sauce-based, but instead marinade juices are based and heated up with gochujang  and/or gochugaru (Korean red hot chili paste and/or powder)

Delicious BBQ (barbecue) Recipe for Spicy Boneless Pork Spareribs

Grill season is already here...yeyy! I love anything from the grill, and I don't think that there is a person out there who doesn't-at least I never met one! To be honest we grill most of the year, except for December and January. To put on the side my favorite grilled homemade sausages(cevapcici) or nice juicy grilled steak, Korean BBQ is on very top-I could just sit and eat all day and every day. I will share more of my favorite recipes from the grill this summer season. 
This time I used boneless pork ribs, because it cooks faster without the bones, but this marinade is fantastic for chicken(any part) or beef too, both grilled and baked or perhaps pan sauteed. Either way you go you will love it, if you do enjoy eating spicy food. However for those that can't handle spicy/hot food reduce and adjust how you like. 
It's a beautiful balance of sweet, savory and spicy...very playful flavor in your mouth once you take a bite, but aroma will get you first. 

 Delicious Homemade Korean BBQ recipe for Spicy Grilled Boneless Pork Spare Ribs

Spicy Grilled Boneless Pork Spare Ribs ~Korean Style ~
Ingredients:
  • 3-4 lbs(1.5-2kg) boneless spareribs (pork), cut into two bite size pieces
marinate:
  • 1/2 Onion or 4 Spring Onions, finely chopped
  • 1 (1 inch-1.27cm) piece ginger, minced
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 1 Asian Pear-it acts as a tenderizer 
  • 2 Tbs. Red Hot Chili Paste (gochujang) *reduce for less heat
  • 1 tsp.(5g) Red Chili flakes/powder, (gochugaru)*optional 
  • 2 Tbs. Sugar
  • 2 Tbs. Soy sauce (lite)/ or 1 Tbs. Original Soy sauce 
  • 1 Tbs. Rice Wine
  • 2 Tbs. sesame oil
Garnish:
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds
  • Green/Spring Onions
Directions:
 Recipe for Spicy Grilled Boneless Pork Spare Ribs
  1. Start with cutting boneless pork ribs into small 2 bite size pieces  If you want to use ribs with the bones then separate by cutting meat between the bones. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Purée onion in a blender or food processor, then add everything for the marinade, pulse few more times until all incorporated. It is easier to marinade and spread on ribs.
  3. Once ingredients are all mixed, rub marinade over the meat (use gloves).
  4. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours if you going to grill that day, but it can be placed in the fridge overnight.
  5. Grill the ribs over medium-high heat until done, about 10 minutes per side.
  6. If cooked in an oven, preheat to 375º. Line baking pan with the aluminum foil or parchment paper, and place the ribs on it. Cook for about 45min or until the meat is cooked. 
I serve it with lettuce, rice and napa cabbage kimchi with addition of Ssamjang (thick, spicy Korean paste used with grilled food wrapped in a lettuce or perilla-sesame leaf)

Note*
  • If you do not eat pork substitute with chicken or beef!
  • You can cook meat with bones but let it grill longer. 


I hope everybody is doing great and ready for Summer break!!!

Stay safe!

Your friend,

Sandra

  2. Hi Sandra, I found your blog through Maureen's Orgasmic Chef blog (she introduced me on her blog). I've mainly concentrated on French food, but your blog gives me some inspiration to try some Korean or other food. My son's girlfriend is Korean, maybe I can get her to try this recipe!

I doubt that your son't girlfriend never tried it before, maybe she can cook up some for you to try wink* hehehe If you like spicy and different flavors in one dish than you will love Korean cuisine, but it is much different from French. I hope you try it soon! Thank you!

  9. Korean is the one food I haven't eaten my fair share of. Not that I don't want to, there just isn't any around here. I have tried the other dish though, the short ribs and love those, so I guess I need to venture out a bit and try something new. So glad it's almost break, have a great holiday weekend.

    1. It is working well together. As much as pear acts as a tenderizer, it also gives bit of sweetness and balance the heat of the gochujang. Thank you!
