Korean food, and the Middle Eastern European region (Russian, Polish, Ukrainian) foods are my all time favorite ethnic foods.
When I am eating Korean food, of course Korean is my very favorite. However, when I am eating Ukrainian food … I become a fickle food friend and immediately flop sides and Ukrainian (or Russian, or Polish, or Lithuanian) food becomes my favorite! They are so closely tied for pure taste-bud goodness!
I love all the spicy, fermented vegetables, the taste of the sea, the multi-grain rice, the SOUPS (so many soups!) Korean foods have deep, complex and strong tastes and I love that about it… just as much as I love the earthy, salty, homey, comfort-rich foods like stuffed cabbage, fluffy potato dumplings, pierogies and beet soup (Borscht) that hail from the Eastern European region.
Today if you where to ask me what my favorite food was, I would have to say with pure conviction: Korean! (Tomorrow is still up for grabs though!)
This barbecue sauce is full of the spicy, deep and complex flavors that make Korean foods so great! I use it on all kinds of things – grilled chicken and pineapple are just the tip of the iceberg!
It was a hot day here in Atlanta so I used this sauce on chicken breasts and pineapple and grilled it up outside so I wouldn’t heat up the kitchen. We ate our Korean grilled chicken and pineapple sliced thin with glass noodles and salad all rolled up in a rice paper wrap, a totally delicious and fun way to eat it!
With a good sauce the world is your oyster… there is no limit to what you can come up with in a flash for a quick, easy and TASTY dinner!
