Korean Beef Satay Recipe

This beef satay recipe was inspired by the traditional Korean beef barbeque named "Bool Kogi". You will discover that this recipe for satay is quite easy to make, and the result is beautifully fragrant beef grilled on a stick.

On top of this, after marinating the meat, the Korean marinade is quickly turned into a nice and spicy satay sauce.

Preparations for this Korean beef satay go like most satay recipes:


Prepare Korean beef marinade;


Cut beef into 1 inch wide and 1/2 inch thick strips and add to marinade. Allow to marinate in your refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or prefereably overnight;


Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 1 hour;


After the beef has marinated thoroughly, stick meat strips onto skewers, shaking off excess marinade. Keep remaining marinade for preparation of satay sauce;


Prepare Korean satay sauce on the basis of the remaining marinade.

Grilling Satay

You can perfectly grill satay on any open grill, whether it is a charcoal, gas or electric grill, but here at Hot Smoke BBQ we prefer to roast satay on a charcoal grill that can be closed. Like a Weber grill or similar.

Charcoal will give a special taste and aroma to the meat, something that you can never achieve on an electric or a gas grill.

We keep the fire in a pocket on one side of the grill, and create a cooler zone on the other side.

In this way you can first roast the satay shortly above the fire, then transfer them to the cooler zone, close the lid of the barbecue, then allow the satay to cook to perfection without charring.

The PitBoss Suggests:

Serve this spicy satay with slices of cucumber and pieces of onion or spring onion, and Korean Satay Sauce:

For garnish, you might consider to toast a few tablespoons of sesame seeds in a dry skillet until golden brown.

Can also be served with white rice, or our easy and fragrant Malaysian Rice (Nasi):
