1. Korean Sizzling Beef 
This succulent recipe is based on bulgogi, a classic Korean dish of sliced beef that’s marinated in soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil and garlic, then grilled.

2. Sweet-and-Salty Korean Barbecued Short Ribs 
Chef Roi Choi is a connoisseur of Korean barbecue. He loves these thinly sliced short ribs, known as kalbi in Korea, which are marinated overnight in a garlic, soy and sugar mixture, then quickly grilled.

3. Korean Barbecued Pork 
In Korea, this recipe, known as toejigogi kui, is made with pork belly, but it’s equally delicious—and much leaner—when prepared with pork loin.

4. Chicken Thighs Marinated with Homemade Ssam Paste 
Salty-sweet, sticky and delectably charred, these chicken thighs get their intense flavor from miso, chile powder, fish sauce, sesame oil and ginger.

5. Kalbi Ribs and Grilled Corn with Kalbi Butter 
Chef Stephanie Izard’s Korean beef kalbi ribs are a summer mainstay.

6. Korean Barbecue Portobellos 
The longer these meaty mushrooms marinade, the better.

7. Korean Barbecued Short Ribs with Sesame Salt 
We especially love this recipe because the ribs are cut across the bone and cook for only 10 minutes. They taste just like juicy seared steak, but they’re more fun to eat.

8. Korean-Style Chicken Wraps 
This dish is great for people trying to cut down on carbohydrates, because the meat is wrapped in lettuce instead of served on bread or in a tortilla.
