Bulgogi Ciabatta Sandwich

Summer is here, and that means grilling season started. I decided to make a roundup of my Top 10 the most popular grilling recipes.

I love walking around my neighborhood, especially on the weekend evenings and just inhaling the aromatic air that goes under my nose from almost every house. Tempting huh? You get hungry in an instant!

One good thing is that we have nice big, man-made grill pit so the grilling was never a problem almost all year round because we have few months or real winter. Although the rainy season can ruin that excitement.

check out more grill recipes.

There is something about grilling in the summertime, grilling on a special holiday or event. Food ends up really special and memorable.

Usually, we eat and remember what we made a previous year… funny, I know! But I guess that is why it is so memorable.

Asian Beef Skewers

4th of the July is knocking on our door and I thought to post a roundup of top 10 of my most popular recipes from the blog.

That being said, you can perhaps find some kind of inspiration what to make for this upcoming holiday. Well, to enjoy it with your family and friends, of course.

My kids are already looking forward to some of our favorite. We love bulgogi, cevapi, grilled marinated pork, kebabs, etc. Also, we do make a lot of food. However, that is always eaten and I never regret making more than I should.

In addition, I do not serve only meat, but various salads and sides that go heavenly with anything grilled.

Therefore, anything that I will post could be made in a pan in a little bit of oil, marinated and baked in the oven or use option to grill.

I hope you will enjoy my Top 10 the most popular grilling recipes.

Salad with Chipotle Grilled Watermelon

Salad with Chipotle Grilled Watermelon

This week I was asked to make a wacky grilled recipe using Mazola Corn Oil and I was thinking hard on this one, but everything I tried making was not wacky enough.

So I turned to the Mazola website and found a recipe for spicy grilled watermelon.

It sounded unique, but delicious and at the same time wacky. I never had grilled watermelon, so I was a little bit skeptical about the whole thing.

Honestly I am not a big fan of grilled fruits; however, since we’re being honest here, grilled watermelon did add balance, spiciness, sweetness, and juiciness to the salad.

Spicy Grilled Boneless Pork Spare Ribs

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)

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 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.

Prep Time 10 minutes

MARINATE TIME 2 hours
Total Time 30 minutes
Author Sandra | Sandra's Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 3-4 lbs 1.5-2kg boneless spareribs (pork), cut into two bite-size pieces

Marinade:

  • 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

Instructions

  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 adds 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.
  7. I serve it with lettuce, rice and napa cabbage kimchi with the addition of Ssamjang (thick, spicy Korean paste used with grilled food wrapped in a lettuce or perilla-sesame leaf)

Recipe Notes

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