740- Barbecue – Bulgogi Style / شواء على طريقة بولغوغي
1 1/2 pounds (700 grams) lamb fillet
1/2 onion, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 kiwi, peeled and halved
1/2 apple, peeled and halved
5 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup (60 ml) soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup (175 ml) water
Step 1 – Soaking the meat:
1- Place the lamb slices in a large bowl, cover with cold water, and let the meat soak for 30 minutes to remove blood and any meat aftertaste.
Step 2 – Preparing the marinade:
1- Place the onion, apple, and kiwi in a food processor and mix until you get a smooth puree.
2- Pour the puree in a large bowl and add the garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, sesame oil, black pepper, and water. Mix well.
Step 3 – Marinating the meat:
1- Drain the meat from the water and place it evenly on a large pan.
2- Pour the marinade all over the meat. Cover the pan with a plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours before cooking the meat.
Note: if you want to marinate the meat overnight and cook it the next day, omit the kiwi from the recipe as the kiwi can over-tenderize the meat.
Step 4 – Cooking the meat:
1- Heat a grilling pan on medium heat.
2- Grill the meat on both sides until the outside is nicely browned. It should take 5-10 minutes.
3- Serve immediately with some rice and other side dishes. Bon Appetit!
