Dwaeji Kalbi (Sweet and Spicy Korean Pork Barbecue)

This delicious barbecue  is very easy to do even more so if you use the marinade powder (that’s where I “discovered” this delicious Korean dish), but making it from scratch using a mini food processor or blender makes it almost as easy as opening a packet of marinade mix.

The homemade marinade is deliciously scented and  it’s sweet, salty, spicy and hot (I added chili flakes to the recipe) at the same time.

This is very similar to bulgogi (Korean beef barbecue).  You can double the marinade ingredients and store half of it in a jar, it will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator ( based on my experience).

I have made this dish  several times using spareribs and pork belly. The only  problem with using spareribs for this is that it doesn’t get fork-tender even after a 2 days of marinating (boiling it first before grilling will do the trick).

For a much quicker barbecue: use pork cutlets, it’s very tender and takes a lot less time to cook. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it sooner.  

It’s perfect for making skewered barbecue because it’s already flat, just cut it into wide strips and let it marinate for at least an hour, overnight is even better.

Sprinkle brown sugar on pork belly ( country style ribs) and let it sit for 10 minutes..

Marinate meat, preferably overnight, if using cutlets or tenderloin, an hour or two will do.

Baste meat with marinade.
