Korean Marinade for Pul Ko Gi or Kal Bi

This marinade is excellent for thin-sliced beef, beef short ribs or chicken, all of which should be cooked on a grill. For a terrific salad, add chili pepper flakes and dress torn romaine lettuce. Prepare this sauce, let the flavors blend for an hour, and then strain it and use it to season fresh ahi for poke. This is a great sauce.

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic, about 3 to 4 cloves
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons honey or brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, ground

Combine all ingredients. Makes 1-1/2 cups. Store covered in refrigerator.

  • When it comes to cooking sausage, it's all about heat management

    "If you're going to grill, you can mark it first on a hotter part of the grill," says Chris Ying, editor in chief of Lucky Peach and co-author of The Wurst of Lucky Peach. "Then move it to the cooler, indirect heat to finish cooking gently and slowly, and let all of those fats and everything break down inside of the sausage."
