What is Korean BBQ?
Traditional Korean BBQ reminds me a lot of hibachi. There is a grill in the middle of the table, you fill it with various raw meats and enjoy it with various different side dishes. It is typically a very meat-heavy meal, which can get expensive! For this at-home slow cooker Korean beef version, you use a lot of the same Korean BBQ ingredients and you can take advantage of cheaper cuts of meat since the crockpot is going to do all of the work and help tenderize it by slow cooking all day.
Korean BBQ Ingredients:
• 1/4 cup corn starch
• 2 tbsp sesame oil
• 1/2 tsp garlic powder
• 1/2 cup soy sauce
• 1/2 tsp chicken or beef granules
• 3/4 cup brown sugar
• 1 diced onion or 1/3 cup dehydrated minced onion (remember I’m lazy)
• 1/4 -1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (depending on how spicy you like it!)
• 1.5 lbs flank steak (or you could use a cheaper steak, ground beef or chuck roast)
How to make Crockpot Korean BBQ:
1. In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch and soy sauce.
2. Place the ingredients into your crockpot, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-6 hours.
3. Remove meat. We like our meat either thinly sliced or shredded. You can do this step prior to cooking, but I’d rather cut up cooked meat than raw meat. 🙂
3. Return the meat to the crockpot and serve!
This Korean BBQ recipe was very good! I was surprised by the awesome flavor and how fast my family ate it up. Next time I will have to make a bigger batch! 🙂 We served it garnished with sliced green onions over rice that we had in the freezer with a splash of rice vinegar to make an even easier dinner.
What to serve with Korean BBQ:
The hardest part about serving Korean BBQ is figuring out your side dishes! Kimchi is typically a must, which is basically a fermented cabbage dish. If you want to keep it simple, rice and stir-fried vegetables are perfect!
Money Saving Tip:
Flank steak is great for this, but I have done this recipe with a roast and with round steak. Use a cheaper cut of steak to save money. It will still taste amazing in the crock pot. Make sure you hit the”print recipe” button so you can have it on hand with your other favorite slow cooker recipes!
