Korean Skirt Steak BBQ with Spicy Mayo and Slaw
Why I Love This Recipe
This recipe reminds me of my Korean roots and heritage because Korean BBQ flavors is very aromatic, and whenever I’m having friends over I like to make Korean style burgers. It represents my Korean culture and the flavors I grew up with, and also how American culture influenced me. It seems very natural for me to want to combine Korean BBQ with burgers since it's my two favorite foods and I also because I'm half Korean and half American.
Typically Korean BBQ is made with rib meat or “galbi” in Korean, but sometimes it’s not always available in the American grocery stores, so I used skirt steak instead and instead of eating it with rice and kimchee like most Koreans like to do I placed it in between buns with spicy slaw and mayo.
