And for vegetarians, it's just as tasty with vegetables and tofu. For a change from everyday life, ALUVY offers you 3 original marinade ideas inspired from the four corners of the world !
Very popular in the Land of Quiet Mornings, the Korean marinade offers a unique sesame flavour. Koreans love it with marinated and grilled beef (bulgogi), but you can also prepare it with pork and chicken ! And to treat your guests to your recipes, serve your dish with rice and a good cold beer. Success guaranteed !
To prepare it, mix in a bowl :
- 6 tablespoons of soy sauce ;
- 3 tbsp. sesame oil ;
- 2 tbsp. sugar ;
- 2 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds ;
- 1 tbsp. flour ;
- One green onion and two chopped cloves of garlic ;
- Black pepper.
Marinate your pieces of meat for at least 2 hours. Ideally, refrigerate them for 6 to 8 hours, or overnight..
ALUVY's tip : to make the meat more tender, add grated Asian pear (found in Asian grocery shops) or kiwi fruit. And if, like the Koreans, you like your meat spicy, add a tablespoon of "gochujang", a red pepper paste, to your marinade.
