Almost every culture and region has their own style of barbecue, and in the episode Sohla grills up two iconic types from across the globe. First, she recreates the original Korean bulgogi, one of the oldest kinds of barbecue you can still find today. Then Sohla cooks Taino barbacoa, using the traditional grill of branches suspended over a wood fire.
– ¼ cup doenjang
– 2 tablespoons soy sauce
– 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
– 3 tablespoons plum syrup, brown rice syrup, or honey
– 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
– 6 garlic cloves, peeled and finely grated
– 1 2-inch thick boneless ribeye, about 1 to 1 ½ pounds
– red leaf lettuce
– short-grain rice
– ssamjang and banchan
1. In a medium bowl, stir together the doenjang, soy sauce, sesame oil, plum syrup, ginger, and garlic.
2. Using a sharp knife, thinly slice the ribeye across the grain. Add the sliced meat to the bowl of bulgogi marinade and gently toss to coat. Cover and marinate at least 30 minutes.
3. Skewer the marinated meat and cook on the grill over high heat until lightly charred. Serve alongside lettuce, rice, ssamjang, and banchan.
– 1 whole fish (such as striped bass, red snapper, or grouper) about 2 to 3 pounds
– kosher salt
– 1 teaspoon whole allspice berries
– 1 tablespoon annatto seeds
– 1 tablespoon dried oregano brujo
– 4 fresh aji dulce
– ½ bunch fresh culantro
– 3 tablespoons neutral oil
1. Gut, scale, and trim the fins off the fish. Using a sharp knife, deeply score both sides of the fish at an angle. Season with salt, taking care to sprinkle salt into the scores and inside the cavity. Set aside.
2. In a mortar and pestle, finely ground the allspice and transfer to a small bowl. Repeat with the annatto seeds and oregano.
3. Roughly chop the aji dulce and culantro. Transfer to a mortar and pestle and crush into a paste. Add the ground spices, oil, and salt and continue processing into a paste.
4. Spread the paste onto the fish, rubbing it into the scores and inside the cavity. Grill over high heat until charred and the flesh easily flakes off the fish.
