Grilling Bulgogi at Home

My husband and I both love barbecue or grilled meat that’s why we had a electric grill at home. It is more convenient and cheaper than going to barbecue joints/restaurant.  As we are leaving Korea soon I have asked my husband’s permission to send the electrical grill to my family and before depositing it on my box we decided to grill bulgogi on Lunar New Year.

Grilled Bulgogi

We grilled meat in our balcony to avoid smoke and stench inside our apartment.  I just open the window and put the electric grill in top of the washing machine.

Bulgogi is the most popular variety of Korean barbecue. Before cooking, the meat is marinated with a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, and pepper. It is traditionally cooked using gridirons or perforated dome griddles that sit on braziers, but pan-cooking has become common as well. [source]

Grilled Marinated Steak

We grilled steak last Friday after getting a good deal in the nearby supermarket.  When I am done grilling all the steak for my husband I marinated my steak on soy sauce, salt, sugar and little bit of water , I just add salt on the steak that I am already grilling so it has something to taste.

Grilled Steak

My husband laughed on what I did because the meat should be marinated longer before cooking it but mine is on the spot marination. It didn’t turn bad anyway,  I grilled mine longer too unlike my husband steak which is grilled medium rare.

Grilling Galbi and Dweji Bulgogi at Home

The other night I have blogged about the fun we had with our new electric grill, we bought two kinds of marinated meat, Pookie bear was the one who put the meat in the electric grill and I am the one who turn it to be cook.


Above is Galbi,  a marinated beef short ribs  in a ganjang-based sauce (Korean soy sauce). In the Korean language, galbi literally means “rib” and can often indicate uncooked ribs. In addition, the dish’s full name is galbi gui, although “gui” (grilling) is commonly omitted to refer to it.

Dweji bulgogi

Above is Dweji bulgogi  or Spicy pork bulgogi it is also a popular Korean barbecue dish and it is quite different from beef bulgogi because it is marinated is gochugang (Korean chili powder) and not in soy sauce.
