this little doosey last Sunday for my friend Cate and her sweet hubby, Kyler. They came to have dinner with us. It was so fun to get to know them better, and they didn't seem to mind being guinea pigs for the dinner. We paired it with our Tokyo Slaw and they were great together! It is super spicy and delicious, I really think you will be impressed with how easy it is and how yummy it is. We had both corn tortillas and lettuce available for wrappers, as well as some thinly sliced red onions to garnish. I think you will love it, try it out!
Kogi BBQ Sauce Recipe
2 tablespoons fermented hot pepper paste (this is spicy)
3 tablespoons sugar (I used raw honey)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Super easy to incorporate with chicken breasts in a crock pot for a few hours (5ish) until shredded and delicious. Or you could use pulled pork etc. If you don't like spicy I would veto the pepper paste, or at least use a lot less. It was so amazing paired with the cooled cucumber relish...such a great dinner combo.
1 large English cucumber (or 2 Japanese cucumbers), sliced very thinly
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar (I used raw honey)
1/2 teaspoon finely minced fresh chili pepper (or more depending on your tastes)
generous pinch salt
mix together and store in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
Use the leftovers on your salad the next day with a simple lime ginger vinaigrette, or your favorite dressing!
