I loved the Korean BBQ ribs I made a while back, the sauce is fantastic.
I also recently was reading an article about the many variations of shaved beef, a way to extend cuts of meat to many more servings.
What if I combine the two? What about sliders – little savory two-bite treats?
The grocery store had a beef two for one sale. Two bottom round roasts later, and I was ready to give it a try.
I put the beef in the freezer to firm it up. Meanwhile I whipped up another batch of the BBQ Sauce. This is going to be a staple for me I know it, but since I haven’t got it memorized, here is the recipe again.
Korean BBQ Sliders
1 bottom round beef roast
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
2-3 green onions, chopped
4-1/2 teaspoons Asian (toasted) sesame oil
3/4 teaspoon sesame seeds
Small dinner or Hawaiian rolls
various pickles for garnish
- Put beef in the freezer to firm up – you do not want it frozen solid, just very firm
- Whisk together the soy sauce and sugar in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved.
- Stir in the black pepper, garlic, green onions, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Set aside
- Remove the beef from the freezer. Trim the fat.
- Slice very thin against the grain, I used my meat slicer, it does a much better job than I ever could with a knife.
- Marinate the beef in the BBQ sauce for minimum 2 hours or overnight.
- Grill on hot outdoor grill for 2-4 minutes, it will not take long, the beef is so thin.
- Mound some up on small dinner rolls.
These are fantastic! Savory, sweet, the crunchy toppings. Definitely party food!
Until next time, Eat Well & Keep Digging!
