Essential Samgyupsal Kitchen Tools
Before getting started on buying your ingredients and prepping them, make sure you have the essential kitchen tools to make your Kpop-themed samgyup party a success. Here as some of the basics:
- A table-top bbq griller – This can be an electric bbq grill or a portable gas-powered stove with a korean bbq griller on top. These are widely available online or in your favorite Korean grocery.
- Metal tongs - These will be used for cooking your meat on the grill.
- Metal chopsticks - This is a great alternative to metal tongs for cooking the meat. They double as utensils for you and your guests too.
This pork Samgyupsal recipe is delicious on its own, even without the dipping sauces, all thanks to a quick marinate in Knorr Liquid Seasoning Original. Take it to the next level with the easy-peasy dipping sauce that’ll make you go woohoo with every bite.
