740- Barbecue – Bulgogi Style / شواء على طريقة بولغوغي

Ingredients

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

Directions

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!
