Korean BBQ Beef is marinated meat thinly sliced. It is quickly cooked over a super hot grill. The marinade is spicy and sweet and completely delicious! It’s easy to make (have your butcher slice the meat), super flavorful, tender and a great choice for a barbecue or cookout!
It’s been HOT here in the valley and it will only continue to get hotter.
100 today – 106 by the weekend. UGH – BUT it is Fresno and we are used to triple digits in the summertime. Since tomorrow is the official first day of summer, Mother Nature is saying why not kick it off with a bang, right?
We are definitely rethinking the idea of a pool. 🏊♀️
I know Fresno would suddenly become a more popular place to visit, that’s for sure!

What kind of meat is used in Korean BBQ?
There are two main types of beef in the Korean BBQ short rib meat & or thin slices of rib-eye. You can also use top or bottom round. This time I used tri-tip. Just make sure the meat is very thinly sliced against the grain, that way is will be tender!
Ask your butcher to slice the meat for you, most are happy to help you out as it’s one of the services they offer.
I love the flavor of tri-tip and it’s also a more affordable cut. After marinating the meat goes on a super-hot BBQ grill and is quickly cooked.
