Samgyeopsal (Korean Pork Belly BBQ) at Home | 집에서 삼겹살 구워먹기

Last Saturday, we held a Korean BBQ dinner at home for the first time. It was a belated house warming party (husband moved here in April and I join him after 6 months later), also a farewell dinner for Mr Park who is returning to Korea soon, and a welcome party for Mr. Ryoo ~ Mr. Park's successor. All of them are my husband's colleagues. This is our first time held a Samgyeopsal BBQ at home. And below are some of the basic items normally needed for the BBQ: 

The Ingredients & preparation:

For BBQ / Grill:
  • 1kg of Pork shoulder meat and Pork Belly (clean with salt water, rinse and dry it, then sprinkle some black pepper on top and keep in fridge for half an hour)
  • King oyster mushrooms (thinly slice) 
  • Enoki mushrooms 

For the wraps
  • Lettuces 
  • Garlic slices 
  • Green Onion slices
  • Chili pepper (green or red)
  • Cut kimchi 
  • Seasoned leek or green onion (Pajeregi 파재래기 or Pajeori 파절이) 
         To make Seasoned green onion:
        Thinly slice the green onion or leek (about 300gm), add in 2 Tbsp soy sauce, 
        1 Tbsp brown sugar, 1 Tbsp sesame oil, 1 Tbsp Korean chili flakes (Gochugaru), 
        1/2 Tbsp white vinegar, 1 Tbsp sesame seeds & 1 tsp minced garlic. Mixed well. 

Dipping sauce
  • Sesame oil (serve with pinch of salt & black pepper)
  • Ssamjang 

I also prepare a Chinese style stew pork dish and rice as extra dishes. The food seems too little for 4 gentlemen to me, but husband say it is good enough. It was Anyway the party ended happily & 4 gentlemen were drunk. The aftermath, I was exhausted mopping the 2000 sqt house floor & piles of oily dishes to be wash (sweat!). The BBQ smell only went off 2 days later after I light-up some aroma candle and leave all windows open for ventilate more than 48 hours  =.=|| Seriously, no more Korean barbecue at home if it is not necessary ^^
