Korean Bulgogi Marinade | Karman Reviews
Bulgogi is one of the most delicious Korean dishes. Normally it is made from thin slices of beef or pork that are marinated and then grilled on the barbecue. Different types of meat like sirloin and brisket are other common meats used for this dish. Traditionally, bulgogi is marinated to enhance its flavor before being grilled or sautéed. Marinades generally include soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, and fruit purees. This marinade is made by Chung Jung One, which is recognized as one of Korea's original producers of authentic marinades since 1984 and has received HACCP certification from KFDA, which means it meets the standard requirements for food safety regulations.
The flavor of this Korean barbecue marinade is sweet and slightly tangy. The main ingredient is soy sauce, which gives the marinade a rich flavorful taste. This product also contains red wine from Spain, which adds flavor when marinating the meats. One bottle can be used to make many meals. The ingredients also include several fruit purees, such as pear, apple, pineapple, and kiwi. Thanks to these fruits, the marinade does a fantastic job at tenderizing thinly sliced beef since they contain enzymes that quickly break down tough meat. The result is a juicy and delicious soft meat that will taste amazing after being properly grilled.
Be sure to leave the meat in the marinade for at least half an hour for good flavor. The serving size of this marinade is one tablespoon and there are 42 servings per container.

To enjoy authentic Korean bulgogi at home, begin by marinating one pound of your favorite meat with four and a half tablespoons of this marinade. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. But for the best taste, you should marinate your meat overnight. This will allow the flavor of the marinade to seep into the meat and for the fruit purees to tenderize it. The marinade is primarily used for beef bulgogi, but it's also great with any other meat, including chicken, pork, turkey, and sausage. It can even be used as a vegetable marinade.
